Meat Warrior is the fourteenth episode of 12 Oz. Mouse overall. It aired on November 5, 2006.
The episode starts off as Peanut Cop picks up Liquor with his firetruck and he continues to drunkenly drive through the city. The second Eye leads the original eye out of Liquor's shop, as the Hand escapes from his jar. The screen cuts to Shark's Office, as the Rectangular Businessman is talking to the Clock. Fitz and Skillet examine the map they found in Roostre's basement. They both discover a tunnel that leads out of their town. Skillet then throws a bone, which makes the Cyber Green Sweatered Woman blast off her firearms. Peanut Cop stops his fire truck at Liquor's shop, as he continues to enter the store. Liquor decides to drive the vehicle to the 750 floor building so he can meet up with Fitz. Pronto enters Shark's control room, as he opens a cabinet that reveals the Animal Chain. Pronto steals the necklace and races off. At Liquor's shop, Peanut Cop is shot with darts and is trapped in a white room. The Shadowy Figure appears, as Peanut Cop hallucinates from the darts. On the 750th floor, Liquor finds Fitz and reveals that Rooster needs his missing hand in order to activate the Corn-Droid. In the sewers beneath the town, Roostre leads Spider to the hidden Corn-Droid. He shows the gigantic creature the pad that powers on the Corn-Droid. Though, the hand needed to activate the robot is his right hand, his missing hand.
