PlotSandy reads an article in the newspaper that says the movie studio is looking for a dog to star in a new movie and thinks Dinky should go to the audition. Uncle Dudley thinks it is a good idea so their pet could start earning some money. Monica thinks it is a good idea because movie star Rory McNeil is in the movie.
It is no surprise that Dinky begins destroying everything at the studio right from the start. Director Manly Hubrick decides to give Dinky a chance because after all he 'IS' a dog. Only after Dinky wrecks set after set does Hubrick finally kick Dinky out of the movie. However, the studio head J.P. Pennyweather sees Dinky's antics and thinks he would be perfect for the movie and plans to make him a star.
- As Dinky is on his rampage through the studio, one of the movie sets he destroys is for a parody of Star Trek: The Original Series. The actors on the set resemble a Vulcan science officer and a Human captain.
