The Ridiculous Epic Spy Operation is the 44th episode in the first season of Sonic X. In the English dub, it is known as The Sewer Search.


The episode begins with a recap of Dr. Eggman's jailbreak from the previous episode. In response, the president sends Rouge and Topaz to find him. Mr. Stewart is also on the case, and when his students--plus Cream, Cheese and Emerl--catch him investigating a large tree, they all find Eggman in a local used bookstore. Mr. Stewart prepares to follow Eggman to his hideout, and the children, refusing to be left out, pile into his car to join the chase. When Chuck notices that Chris isn't home from school yet, he tells Sonic, who speeds off to find him.

Mr. Stewart and the children follow Eggman into the sewers, where Eggman catches their car with a large net. Decoe and Bocoe find Mr. Stewart's spy tools in his briefcase, but he denies being anything more than a teacher. When the children observe that Mr. Stewart is not "cool" enough to be a spy, Eggman agrees, and leaves them all in a cell together.

Once left unsupervised, Mr. Stewart picks the lock on the cell door and begins leading the children out. When they run into Bokkun, Chris leads Helen in a ruse to summon Sonic, convincing Bokkun that he should ask Ella for some of her delicious apple pie. Sure enough, Sonic finds Bokkun as he exits the sewers, and he heads down to help with the escape. Before he speeds off, he makes good on a promise he made to Rouge: with hints of Ella's strawberry cake, he convinces Bokkun to carry her a message about Eggman's location.

Eggman catches up to Mr. Stewart and the children, but Sonic arrives just as he attacks. Eggman manages to pin Sonic against a wall, but Rouge and Topaz arrive to aid him. During the battle, Emerl acquires Rouge's Screw Kick attack and uses it to destroy Eggman's spider robot. With Eggman neutralized for the moment, the children are free to go home.
