The Island of Doctor Moron is the fourth episode of Crash Bandicoot: N-Ventures!. In this episode, Dr. Neo Cortex decides to delve into the dark world of genetic engineering, unwittingly alienating his former animal minions in the process.
Professional scientist Dr. Neo Cortex has gathered his most trusted minions - Ripper Roo, Koala Kong, Pinstripe Potoroo, Tiny Tiger, the Komodo Bros., and Dr. Nitrus Brio (in the form of a mutated frog) - for the grand unveiling of his latest, greatest evil scheme. Using N. Gin's newly invented Surprising Self-Realising Humanising Animalising Chamberising Chamber, he will now be able to turn innocent animals into his own walking, talking slaves! As his very first animal experiment ever, Cortex creates a terrifying army of squirrels, all voiced by James Avery. His army is very powerful, but his minions feel betrayed by his newfound interest in genetic engineering of animals. Desperate, they are forced to recruit a most unlikely ally: Crash Bandicoot, and his sister, Coco Bandicoot! The fearsome ninesome manages to sneak past the fearsome squirrels, by disguising themselves as "acorns they've stored away for winter", and reach the chamber, but before they can sabotage it, Cortex catches them and unleashes his new head henchman, Squirrelly the Squirrel, also voiced by James Avery! Facing an uphill battle, all seems lost for Roo, Kong, Pinstripe, Tiny, Joe, Moe, Frogbrio, Crash, and Coco. That is, until Polar arrives on the scene, and deviously manages to trick Squirrelly the Squirrel into entering the chamber, and quickly reverses the Surprising Self-Realising Humanising Animalising Chamberising process, reverting Squirrelly the Squirrel into a normal squirrel. Realizing his defeat, Cortex realizes the error of his ways, and makes a vow to everyone that his squirrel army was the first, and last, venture into experimenting with animals for evil purposes. Pinstripe chimes in to add that genetically engineering food is also bad, and that the viewers at home should insist that their parents only buy organic foods from now on.
