Operation: Tiger Bomb is the first episode of the W.A.R. Journal story line and is the first episode of the action spin off Ka-Pow!.


The episode begins as Private Flippy and a team of commandos prepare to infiltrate a jungle base belonging to the Tiger Army, led by Tiger General, who is discussing his plan to take over the world. After overlooking the area with binoculars, Flippy gives the orders to move out. Both Sneaky and Mouse Ka-Boom take out patrols around the base, while Flippy infiltrates the base under the guise of a pizza boy, satisfying the General and his soldiers. When Flippy opens the pizza box, it is shown that he has replaced a slice with a throwing knife. He appears to grab and throw his knife at the General. However, he soon realizes that he has thrown a slice of pizza instead by mistake.

This blows his cover and he is chased by the General's minions. Flippy grabs and throw his knife at his pursuers, but instead hits a hidden Sneaky, pinning him to the wall while managing to distract the soldiers chasing him. Mouse then throws a bomb into the base, scaring off the soldiers who were chasing Flippy. The bomb rebounds off the pizza the General is holding and is going to eat, covering it with melted cheese, and lands back in Mouse's hands. While Flippy desperately tries to remove his knife from Sneaky's torso, Mouse runs to Flippy for help, since the cheese from the pizza is causing the bomb to stick to his hands.

As Flippy pulls the knife out of Sneaky, he accidentally swings his knife back, cutting the lit fuse and causing it to fly upwards, and, unfortunately, cutting Mouse in half as well. By cutting Mouse in half, he exposes an arsenal of explosives that explode when the fuse falls back down, and the three are blown away deeper into the jungle. Flippy survives the explosion, but Mouse is nothing more than a few body parts and Sneaky's corpse has been severely burned. As the enemies close in, Flippy hides in Sneaky's corpse.

While the General wonders where Flippy went and the soldiers survey the damage of the explosion, Flippy huddles in Sneaky's corpse, covered in blood and worms, and is whimpering in fear. Overcome by the extreme stress of the situation, Flippy flips out for the first time. His eyes turn red like the color of crimson blood, his teeth become sharp and pointy on each end, and his voice lowers into a deep, sinister voice. Thus, Fliqpy is born. When he comes out for the first time, he emerges from Sneaky's body and roars in grief and rage, proceeding to use Sneaky's ribcage and one of his femurs as weapons to disembowel a soldier, knock out his teeth, and sever his abdomen, spilling out his stomach. The loose teeth fall into the soldier's stomach and Fliqpy blows into the top of the stomach like he's playing a bagpipe. The teeth fly out of the stomach like machine gun bullets, cutting down all the soldiers, but not the General.

As the only two left standing, Fliqpy and the General begin fighting. After a long and bloody battle, during which Fliqpy is stabbed in his stomach and has his hands cut off, Fliqpy manages to kill the General by ripping open his stomach with his hand stubs and crushing him under a falling log. He later visits another Tiger Army base in the middle of a lake, carrying a pizza box. He opens the box to reveal the General's crushed face, now resembling a pizza, while laughing manically.
