The episode was written by Dorothy Middleton.
King Charles is given the opportunity to escape from the Mirror World using an interdimensional warp zone that only opens once every thousand years. But he sends a supercomputer called Gameboy in his place. However, the so-called "supercomputer" ends up being a troublemaker despite the King's claims about him being able to help the N Team. Things take a turn for the worst when Mother Brain plots to capture Gameboy for her own use.
