“Dog with a Hog”
Season 1, Episode 3
November 11, 2012
Stan convinces Avery to let him fill in as the mascot for the Homecoming Game.
When Stan finds out that Avery's school needs a new mascot, he wants her to sign him up. Avery is reluctant to do so because the rival school has a history of pulling pranks on the mascots. Fortunately, she decides to sign him up after she learns from Tyler that the schools won’t be messing with the mascot anymore because they will get expelled if they do.
Meanwhile, Ellen convinces Bennett to buy her a new car after she is having problems with it. Things are going well with Stan being the mascot until Avery believes the rival school has kidnapped him & tries to figure out how to get him back. But it is revealed that Tyler is the one who took Stan, as he hopes the rival school will get blamed for taking him. But things start to go wrong when Avery takes the rival school's pig mascot as a way to get Stan back. Though she is relieved that Stan is safe, she becomes worried with what will happen to her since she took the pig. When Ellen & Bennett find out what had happened, Ellen wants to call the school & explain what happened, but Avery stops her. They all plan to sneak the pig back to the school & they use Ellen’s new car to get the pig there, much to her dismay.
While on the way to the school, the pig tears up the back of the car then gives birth, to Ellen's horror. When they get to the school, they leave Stan in the car while they sneak the pig back into its pen. While waiting for the family, Stan is able to distract a security guard when he discovers the car. He manages to drive him away before the family gets back. When they get back home, they realize that they left Chloe in the pigpen. At the end of the episode, Stan reveals what the bad, bad, thing that he has mentioned throughout the episode is: while at the pep rally, the rival school’s pig was skateboarding & drew all the attention away from him.
