"Gossip Boy" is the fifth episode in the first season of Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja. It premiered on September 20, 2012.


Howard accidentally tells everyone on his sister Heidi's web show that he knows who the Ninja is and is captured by McFist, who demands the Ninja's identity.


Laughing matters
Randy and Howard start talking about some disgusting things which Randy calls the Shnasty Zone, that Randy has seen while fighting Robo-Apes including Principal Slimovitz in training pants and wearing a cowboy hat, the Janitor eating gum with a silverfish inside, which he found under a desk, and the Cafeteria Lady putting a dead squirrel in the tacos they serve on Taco Tuesday. The robo-ape vomited after seeing the doings in process.

Later, Howard goes into Heidi Weinerman's room where she is recording Gossip Report. He asks her for lunch money, but ends up criticizing all her gossip. She then asks him to come up with something better. He tells about what Randy told him. He becomes popular because of that and gets the slow clap.

I need more gossip

Everyone in the school knows his name and want more gossip, so under the pressure he says that he knows who the Ninja is and Randy spits all over Heidi's face, who ignored it. He then tells everyone to come back tomorrow to find out.

After school, McFist imprisons Howard and tries to find out who the Ninja is using a mind reader. Randy sings the Whoopee World commercial song so that he won't think of anything else. Howard ends up singing the song while the webshow is airing.
