Overview

Nish has done some crazy things - but nothing to match this! At midnight on New Year's Eve, he's planning to "moon" the entire world.

The Screech Owls have come to New York City for the Big Apple International Peewee Tournament. They'll be playing in Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Rangers, and on New Year's Eve they are going to Times Square for the biggest party in history. The countdown to midnight will be broadcast live on a giant TV screen and beamed around the world by a satellite. But Data and Fahd figure out that with just a laptop computer and video camera they can interrupt the broadcast - and Nish will have pulled off the most outrageous stunt ever.

Travis, Sarah, and the others have heard it all before. They are more interested in playing in the tournament and exploring the most exciting city on Earth. But no one anticipated just how exciting New York can be. Just hours before midnight, the Owls discover that terrorists plan to disrupt the New Year's celebration in a more dramatic way than even Nish could have imagined.
