This is a transcript from the Sonic Boom episode, "Flea-ing From Trouble".

[Scene: Village Center, day.]

Dr. Eggman: This is an outrage! How can you jack up the price of Choco Num-num Bars? They're the only kind I like!
Male Fennec: They're very popular, sir. It's basic supply and demand?
Dr. Eggman: Well, I "demand"' you hand them over, or I'll "'supply"' you with a laser blast! Not my best wordplay, but you didn't give me much to work with.
[Dr. Eggman flies down and snatches one of the candy bars and starts to fly off, laughing. Before he gets far, however, Team Sonic shows up.]
Sonic: Drop the num-num, Eggman!
Dr. Eggman: Oh, great. It's the Fun Police. Let's see how you do against my largest creation yet! The tremendously terrifying... and cleverly named... HugeBot!
[The massive HugeBot lands behind Team Sonic, who flinch in terror as it raises a foot to stomp them. After a few seconds, however, nothing happens, and they look to see that HugeBot is far too unweildy, its attempted stomp coming down very slowly. Team Sonic turns impatient, Sonic looking at his watch. Finally, he has had enough.]
Sonic: Knuckles, give me a boost.
[Knuckles grabs Sonic and throws him at HugeBot. Sonic goes into a spin and hits HugeBot's head, bouncing off, then spinning back to hit it again, knocking the robot's head off. The disabled robot crashes to the ground, and Team Sonic high-five each other.]
Team Sonic: Yeah!
Dr. Eggman: Meh.
[Eggman throws down the candy bar and flies off.]

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, interior, day.]

Dr. Eggman: I keep building larger and larger robots to combat Sonic and his dopey friends.
[Eggman looks at a series of images of him standing next to the "larger and larger robots," including Scorpion Bot, Octopus Bot, Obliterator Bot, and Mega Bot.]
Dr. Eggman: But all that got me are larger and larger scrap piles!
[Eggman watches another series of images, showing Eggman crying next to the wrecked remains of the previously mentioned robots.]
Dr. Eggman: And HugeBot was the most worthless of all!
Orbot: Oh, that's not true, sir!
Dr. Eggman: I guess you're right. You two are the most worthless! I need a new game plan. If going big isn't working--
Cubot: You should go even bigger!
Dr. Eggman: No, you dimwit! I need to go small! But you tried. That's what matters.

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, interior.]

[Eggman is looking through a magnifer at a FleaBot]
Dr. Eggman: Using micro-nano technology, these FleaBots can turn the most hygienic foe into a bumbling itchy mess.
[Eggman moves to put the Fleabot into a glass bowl with a bunch of others, but Cubot pushes him out of the way.]
Cubot: Ooh! Lemme see!
[Orbot tries to move in to see as well, but ends up knocking over the glass bowl, breaking it and setting all the FleaBots loose.]
Dr. Eggman: AAH! My FleaBots!
[Orbot and Cubot chase the FleaBots, attempting to catch them, but fail miserably. Eggman pushes a button on a remote, causing the FleaBots to fall into formation and return to another glass bowl.]
Dr. Eggman: Now, I need you two blank tapes to place these on Sonic and those cheesefaced chinchillas.

[Scene Change: Meh Burger, day.]

[Sonic is seated at a table, eating a burger. Orbot and Cubot walk by]
Cubot: Well, here we are at Meh Burger! Even though we don't eat food.
Orbot: Just two robots enjoying the elegant atmosphere of a half-star eatery.

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Eggman is watching this on his monitor.]
Dr. Eggman: Get on with the plan already!
[Cubot pulls out a blowgun and fires one of the FleaBots at Sonic. Sonic starts scratching his head. On the monitor, the icon representing Sonic turns green, indicating he's been infested.]

[Scene Change: Amy's House, day.]

[Amy is sitting in front of a mirror, applying makeup. As she reaches to put her compress away, Cubot reaches in through the window, switching out Amy's perfume bottle for one containing the FleaBots. Amy applies the perfume to herself, then starts scratching. Orbot and Cubot congratulate one another outside.]

[Scene Change: Seaside Island beach, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot hide behind some bushes, in front of which Knuckles is with Staci.]
Knuckles: Ready to be impressed?
[Staci grins. Knuckles picks up a dumbbell and lifts it into the air. Cubot uses a slingshot to fire one of the FleaBots onto Knuckles. Knuckles screams and starts scratching himself. Staci shakes her head slightly, picks up her towel, and walks away. Knuckles ends up falling over from the weight of the dumbell.]

[Scene Change: Sticks' Burrow, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot are on top of it. Orbot is holding a coffee cup and a drill.]
Orbot: I'll drill a small hole and drop the FleaBots inside. Sticks will never even notice.
[The second Orbot starts drilling, however, Sticks bursts out of her burrow.]
Sticks: Who's there?!
[Orbot and Cubot flee, with Orbot dropping the cup, releasing the FleaBots to swarm the growling Sticks.]

[Scene Change: Tails' Workshop, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot are on the roof. Orbot throws the remaining FleaBots in through the rooftop fan. They land on Tails, who is working on a device, but drops his work and starts scratching like crazy, eventually falling over. One of Eggman's Spy Bots is watching this.]

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, Interior, day.]

[The last icon on Eggman's monitor turns green, indicating that all the members of Team Sonic have been infested. Eggman, who is eating a piece of cake, starts laughing. This causes him to choke on the cake, and smack his chest to cough it out. He resumes laughing.]

[Scene Change: Meh Burger, day.]

[Sonic approaches, still scratching himself.]
Sonic: There's the gang. Better play it cool so they don't know I have fleas.
[Sonic walks up to the table where Tails, Knuckles, and Amy are sitting, turns a chair around, and sits down.]
Sonic: 'Sup, peeps?
Amy: Nothing! No shameful hygiene problems here, that's for sure! [chuckles nervously]
Knuckles: Yeah! I've never felt more fresh!
[Tails forces a smile to hide the fact he is itching like crazy. Sonic does the same, scratching his arms. Everyone at the table is fidgeting.]
Sonic: [points at the floor] Hey! Check out that hideous stain on the floor!
[While everyone else looks at it, Sonic scratches himself.]
Dave: It's not a stain. It's the one clean spot.
[Knuckles nervously looks around, then knocks a salt shaker to the ground]
Knuckles: I'll get that!
[Knuckles drops to the ground, and starts scratching himself with his hind leg like a dog.]
Tails: [hesitantly] Better get some more ketchup...
[Tails carries his fries over to the ketchup dispenser, then scratches himself while using it. The ketchup ends up spilling over. Back at the table, Amy props up her hammer and uses the handle to scratch her back. Sticks walks up, scratching herself.]
Sticks: You guys got fleas too, huh?
Sonic: What?! No! We jus-- ah, the heck with it!
[Everyone starts wildly scratching themselves.]
Tails: Where did these things come from?!
Sonic: Well, it wasn't me! I keep that dilapidated shack where I live spotless! If anywhere, they probably came from Amy's old rug!
Amy: It's not old, it's vintage! And it's too expensive to have fleas. Sticks is the one who lives in a hole in the woods!
Sticks: I had a shaman cast a pest control spell on that place years ago!
Knuckles: Everybody, please! We all know who's really to blame... It was Knuckles! [Acts shocked] What?! How dare I besmirch my good name, sir!
Tails: Guys! It doesn't matter who started it!
Sticks: That's what Patient Zero would say!
[Sticks charges Tails, but is restrained by Sonic. At a nearby table, Eggman is watching this while reading a newspaper.]
Dr. Eggman: Oh-ho, this is just delicious!
Dave: [Delighted] Really?
Dr. Eggman: Not the food! The plan!
Dave: [Deflated] Oh. That makes more sense. Have you seen the clean spot, by the way?

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Team Sonic rocks down the road, still badly scratching]
Knuckles: Oh, these fleas itch even worse than that poison ivy scented deodorant I've been using!
Male Fennec: [Blocks their approach] Wait, fleas?! You can't bring your flea-infested pelts into my shop!
Sonic: But you're the only store in town that sells anti-itch lotion! Can you at least bring the stuff to us and we'll pay for it out here?
Male Fennec: All right.
[Male Fennec walks back towards his store, but pushes a button under his stand, which triggers an alarm. Beaver Policeman, Wolf Policeman, and Mayor Fink run up, dressed in Biohazard suits]
Beaver Policeman: Freeze, fleabags!
Wolf Policeman: You folks are going to have to vacate the village immediately.
Sonic: Are you banishing us?!
Mayor Fink: Of course not. We're quarantining you. It's like a banishment, but more confined.

[Scene Change: Tails' House, day.]

[A ring of police tape is surrounding the house. Inside, Team Sonic is still scratching like crazy.]
Sonic: I guess this isn't so bad. I mean, the town's turned on us for less.
[The rest of Team Sonic murmurs their agreement]
Tails: [Grabs a basket] At least they gave us this basket of treatments. [Reads the label on one of the sprays] "Warning: May cause dizziness, nausea, heartburn, and night terrors."
Knuckles: Oh-oh! Me first!
[Tails sprays some of the spray on Knuckles. Knuckles lets out a sigh of relief, but then wobbles dizzily, barely stops himself from vomiting, clutches his chest in pain, screams, and faints.]
Tails: Uh... who's next?

[Scene Change: Tails' House, day.]

Sonic: Come on, Amy, just try on the flea collar. It's not like anybody's gonna see you.
[Amy growls, but grabs the collar and puts it around her neck. Just then, Mark the Tapir leads a group of Gogobas past Tails' house.]
Mark: And continuing our walking tour, here's Tails' house! Oh, and inside, there's Amy Rose wearing a flea collar, not unlike an outdoor cat.
[The Gogobas ooh and take pictures. Amy angrily pulls off the flea collar and starts scratching again.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Eggman's Robots are invading the village, causing panic.]
Dr. Eggman: [Laughs] Yes, minions. Take all the Choco Num-Num Bars you can carry!
[Mrs. Vandersnout runs over to Mayor Fink, Wolf Policeman, and Beaver Policeman.]
Mrs. Vandersnout: Help! Where's Team Sonic? And why aren't they here to save us?
[Mayor Fink and the policemen look at each other, then chuckle nervously.]

[Scene Change: Tails' House, day.]

[Team Sonic is still madly scratching. Mayor Fink knocks at the door. Tails answers it.]
Mayor Fink: Congratulations! By decree of the Mayor's office, I now un-quarantine you! I hope you learned your lesson!
Wolf Policeman: Now, if you wouldn't mind, Eggman just tore up the village something fierce.
Knuckles: You ever think maybe you guys should do something? You are police officers, after all.
Beaver Policeman: Hey, that's enough lip from you.
Sonic: We'd love to help, but I don't think we'd be much good right now!
Amy: Yeah! We've tried every potion and powder we can find, but nothing works on these fleas!
Mayor Fink: Maybe they're not fleas.
Tails: I was so busy itching, I never considered that!
Mayor Fink: Well, hurry up and figure it out! The village isn't gonna save itself, you know. Especially with my brother-in-law as chief of police.
Beaver Policeman: [shrugs] Eh, what are you gonna do?
[The Mayor and the police leave. Tails pulls out a pair of tweezers, sticks them into his fur, and pulls out one of the FleaBots. He carries it over to a microscope and examines it.]
Tails: These aren't fleas! They're FleaBots!
Sonic: Well, we may not know how to destroy bugs, but we know exactly how to destroy robots!
[Knuckles scratches his head, confused.]
Sonic: With brute force!
[Sonic throws a punch at Knuckles, burying it in his stomach and knocking him down.]
Sonic: Sorry, Knux. Aiming for the FleaBots. You just happened to be behind them.
Knuckles: Completely understood, my good man!
[Knuckles grabs a log from the fireplace nearby and smacks Sonic, sending him flying into Sticks. Amy pulls out her hammer and smashes Tails' foot with it, causing him to hop around in pain. After a beat, they all jump at each other and a massive fight ensures.]
Sonic: [Punches Sticks in the face] Oh, sorry!
Tails: [Kicks Amy in the face] Don't take it personally!
Sticks: [punching someone off-screen] I was aiming for the FleaBots!
Knuckles: Not the face! Not the face!
[The fight finally breaks up, with everyone still itching. Tails sweeps up two FleaBots.]
Amy: Only two? That's it?!
Sticks: And a tooth.
Tails: Hmm... maybe there's a more scientific approach we can take.
Knuckles: More scientific than punching?
[Tails examines one of the broken FleaBots through a magnifying glass, and sees a blinking light.]
Tails: These are programmed to work remotely. All we have to do is find the controller!
Sonic: And I have a pretty good hunch where that might be!

[Scene Change: Sheep Villager's House, day.]

[Sonic and Knuckles suddenly smash their way in, startling Sheep Villager.]
Sonic: Hand over the controller, you lousy--
[Sonic cuts off, realizing he is in the wrong place.]
Sonic: You know, now that I think about it, the controller's probably at Eggman's.

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, interior, day.]

[A pile of open Choco Num-Num Bar wrappers are on the floor. Another one is tossed onto the pile.]
Dr. Eggman: Mmm... tastes like victory. With a hint of nougat.
[Team Sonic busts in, still scratching.]
Dr. Eggman: You can't come in here! You'll track in fleas! Seriously, some people. How rude.
Sonic: We know your game, Eggman! Now hand over the FleaBot controller!
Dr. Eggman: [Holds the controller up] Oh, this old thing? How about you come and get it?
[Eggman pushes a button on the remote, causing Team Sonic to itch even more. Some Motobugs and Mantis Bots enter, and Team Sonic tries to go on the offensive, but are hampered by their itchiness. Tails is knocked off his feet by a Motobug. One of the Mantis Bot's arms is launched at Amy, but she ducks under it to scratch her leg.]
Sonic: Can somebody scratch my back for me? Oh, that’s the stuff.
[Something starts scratching Sonic's back, causing him much relief. He glances back and sees that it's one of the Mantis Bots scratching his back. He jumps into the air and smashes it. Sticks has a Motobug driving on her back.]
Sticks: Ohh, yes...
[Knuckles is spinning in circles on the floor, whooping, luckily kicking away Moto Bugs as he does. Sonic continues to wince and moan as the itching continues, while Eggman laughs.]
[Sonic jumps into the air, bouncing around the room like a pinball.]
Dr. Eggman: Whoa, dude! Get a hold of yourself.
[Sonic slams into Eggman, knocking him down and sending the remote flying to Tails. Tails picks it up.]
Tails: Let's see how these fleas thrive in mustache hair!
[Tails pushes a button on the remote. The Fleabots on him and the rest of Team Sonic jump off, finally relieving them of their itchiness. The FleaBots then swarm Eggman, who screams, starts scratching himself, and starts running.]
Dr. Eggman: Get them off me!
Amy: So Tails, is this remote the only way to stop the FleaBots?
Tails: Pretty sure.
[Amy takes the remote, drops it, then smashes it with her hammer. Team Sonic laughs and leaves as Eggman runs by again, still screaming.]
Dr. Eggman: MOMBOT! [crying]
[Some time later, Eggman is sitting in the tub, with Orbot and Cubot slathering anti-itch lotion on him.]
Orbot: It probably wasn't wise to have all those Choco Num-Num Bars. Now you have a tummyache.
Dr. Eggman: Less talking, more slathering.
[Eggman considers to scratch himself as the episode ends.]
