In the morning Jane sends Elroy to Little Dipper Elementary school, while Judy Jetson goes on a date with Ricky Rocket on a hoverboard sky skiing, while George takes Astro to play with the dogs. Meanwhile at school Elroy solves the complex math problem in his classroom. School bully Kenny Countdown watches the billionth rerun of The Flintstones on his TV watch during class. The teacher confiscates his watch and is mocked by Kenny, due to a short in the teacher's transistor. The teacher says Kenny won't be laughing in a minute as she passes out the weekly report tapes. The teacher gives Elroy his tape, with straight As. As Elroy is flying around the classroom happily, he is instructed to sit back at his desk. Kenny pushes him out of the way, and Elroy lands on the floor. The teacher assures Elroy that Kenny will be punished when his parents hear his grades: four Ds, an F, and an H. Not only can't Kenny erase the tape because it's strong against magnets, but he knows what will happen the minute his father hears the tape. Kenny pulls a prank on Elroy and switches the grade tape reports on Elroy. Elroy is excited to show the grade report but when he gets home, his parents George and Jane and sister, Judy are disappointed with Elroy but Elroy tells the truth but they don't believe him except Astro and George and Jane send him and Astro to timeout in his room.
