  Summary  

Kowalski unveils his latest invention: "nanites," tiny robots which are capable of operating any mechanical object, thus freeing the penguins of time spent on chores. Skipper initially fears the nanites will become another of Kowalski's disastrous inventions, but changes his mind after Kowalski demonstrates that the nanites are programmed to not allow any harm to come to a penguin. Unfortunately, the programming has the unintended consequence of the nanites becoming overprotective, first by inhibiting the team's rescue of Barry the poison-dart frog when his tongue is caught in the cotton candy machine- although they are able to outmaneouvre the nanites and save Barry anyway- and later by containing them in their HQ. The nanites fight back against the penguins' attempts to shut them down by assembling a large robotic form from various pieces of technology around the zoo, but are unstoppable until Kowalski is injured after his attempt to hit the robot with an EMP causes it to fall on top of him, with the nanites then self-terminating because they had violated their penguin non-harm protocol.
