In the Pinkster is the tenth episode of the second season.
Gangsters Stoney the Stone and Bugsy the Bug are in town stealing weapons. At the tower Zadavia tells the Loonatics that the city is about to transport a very important substance, quarium. The material could take away the Loonatics' powers, leaving the city defenseless. The Loonatics then set out to find Stoney and Bugsy.
While chasing Stoney and Bugsy an officer interrupts and gets caught in the crossfire. This officer is Pinkster Pig, an old friend of Danger Duck. It's revealed that Duck and Pinkster were once orphans and after a flip of Duck's coin, Duck was adopted while Pinkster wasn't. Pinkster says that after he left the orphanage, he did various jobs, one of which an officer, in which he works as now. Duck then tries to convince the other Loonatics to let Pinkster stay, saying he can help out the team.
Ace agrees and the Loonatics set out to find the duo once more. The Loonatics spot them stealing more weapons and Ace reluctantly leaves Pinkster in charge of the trap. Pinkster fails to launch the trap in time and catches Ace and Duck instead, leaving Stoney and Bugsy free to go. In the news a reporter recaps all the times the Loonatics new sidekick has made the team fail and look "just plain Looney".
Ace and Lexi question whether or not to let Pinkster stay while Duck begs on his behalf. Ace and Lexi wonder why Duck cares so much. Duck then reveals that he used a two-sided coin to get adopted and that it's been tearing him up all these years. Ace reluctantly agrees to let Pinkster stay.
Pinkster then asks to guard the quarum in which Ace agrees. During the transport, Pinkster drops his lucky can and chases after it, forcing Tech to turn off defenses to protect him. Stoney and Bugsy then drop in via parachute and capture Tech and Rev. When Ace returns and gets the situation under control, Pinkster reveals he's working with Stoney and Bugsy. Pinkster reveals to the Loonatics he was adopted by them a day after Duck and then uses the quarium on Ace. Pinkster, believing he's won talks about how he will claim Acmetropolis when Ace springs the trap on Pinkster, Stoney, and Bugsy.
Ace says he's checked out all the jobs Pinkster claimed to work at and that they had no record of him. Ace then tells Pinkster that he shouldn't have known about the quarium because it was top secret and says he already did the transport the day before. The one that was there was only a decoy to lure Pinkster out. Duck then walks to Pinkster and says he can still be good, prompting Pinkster to push him over and say to the audience, "This ain't over, folks"!
