The Family Business is the fifth episode of the second season.


After the Loonatics' mission to stop Toby the Pizza Boy, a delivery boy for the Pizza Fest restaurant who was possessed by a Bio-Tech Brain Parasite device, Rev Runner's family comes to visit when they want Rev to take over the family business. Rev begs Tech to help him make his father proud.

Meanwhile, Ralph shows so much attention to Rev that Rip, Rev's younger brother and the outcast of the family, shows extreme jealousy towards Rev for being the family favorite as well as being a superhero. When Rip finds the confiscated Bio-Tech Brain Parasite, it takes control of him and makes him act on his dark feelings of anger and jealousy towards his brother, and the Loonatics must stop him.

Major Events

  • Rev Runner's family is introduced.




  • This is one of the few episodes without Zadavia.
  • This is the first and only time anyone's family has been introduced in the show.
  • Tech falling off of a cliff numerous times is a reference to the running gag in Looney Tunes shorts where Wile E. Coyote falls off of a cliff.
  • This episode is the sixth one on the season two DVD set instead of "Cape Duck".
  • The monster Rev leaves to help the team fight looks just like a Fuz-Z.
  • Rev's parents has Coyote issues against Tech probably because of their ancestory family like Wile E. Coyote always tried to capture Road Runner.
  • The Bio-Tech Brain Parasite is similar to The Mask and the symbiote. Both living things take over a Host.


[After seeing Rev's family and them speaking, and eating pizza]

Danger Duck: "Ahhhh! My brain is melting! There's a whole family of them! I'm checking into a hotel."

[When Rip is on a rampage]

Ace Bunny: Little brother, you need to chill. Try some yoga!

[Rev is tinkering with the Robo Amigo]

Rip Runner: Adults don't need a Robo Amigo. Pa should sell it to kids.
Ralph Runner: [Pats Rip's head] Rip, stop bothering your brother. Can't you see he's doing important work? [Looks to Rev] Now, how's my genius with a wrench doing?

[Robo Amigo comes alive]

Robo: I can make anything fun.
Ralph: Whoa-yeah!

[Robo proceeds to explode]

Rev: [Sigh] Well, still a few bugs technically-wise, but marketing-wise how about we sell him to kids instead of adults?
Ralph: Why th-th-th-th-that's brilliant!
Rip: Hey, what am I? Invisible?

Ralph: It doesn't feel right, him being here. Even if he's a vegetarian.
Rev: Well, he just wants to learn from the best. Right, Tech? [awkward laugh]
Tech: That's right. [sly look] And the best is definitely in the room.

[Rev sweats with a nervous grin]

Ralph: [smug look] Well, I'm glad to see a coyote who knows he's limitations.

[Tech growls]

Duck: Oh yeah, making toys for rugrats. What are you, a crime fighter or one of Santa's elves?

[Tech walks into his lab, dragging Rev in, who is attached to his leg]

Rev: Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please! Don't make me beg!
Tech: [deadpanned] Uh, you are begging.
Rev: Then please make me stop.

Rev: Ah, thanks, Tech. If you weren't a coyote, and a guy, I'd kiss you!
Tech: Then lucky for me, I'm both.

[Rip enlarges another Robo Amigo]

Rip: Double the destruction, double the fun! Haha!
Rev: [Gasps] Oh no! The situation was bad enough with one amigo. Now there are two!
Tech: Okay, that's a challenge.
