"Gossip Boy" is the fifth episode in the first season of Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja. It premiered on September 20, 2012.


Howard accidentally tells everyone on his sister Heidi's web show that he knows who the Ninja is and is captured by McFist, who demands the Ninja's identity.


Randy and Howard start talking about some disgusting things which Randy calls the Shnasty Zone, that Randy has seen while fighting Robo-Apes including the Janitor Sundown eating gum with a silverfish inside which he found under a desk, Principal Slimovitz in diaper and wearing a cowboy hat, and the Cafeteria Lady putting a dead squirrel in the tacos they serve on Taco Tuesday. The robo-ape vomited after seeing the doings in process. Randy then explains that he wishes to forget about the disturbing things he witnessed by using a so-called "mindwipe". Howard also seems to like the idea of a "mindwipe", since he also desires to forget a Whoopee World commercial song that prevents him from thinking anything else every time he hears it.

Later, Howard goes into Heidi's room while she is recording the Gossip Report. He asks her for lunch money, but ends up criticizing all her gossip. She then asks him to come up with something better. He tells about what Randy told him. He becomes popular because of that and gets the slow clap.

Everyone in the school knows his name and want more gossip, so under the pressure he says that he knows who the Ninja is and Randy spits his soda all over Heidi's face, who ignored it. He then tells everyone to come back tomorrow to find out. A panicking Randy enters the library to seek a mindwipe for the entire town, however, the Nomicon continued emphasizing his lesson of the day: “ The way to forget is to remember "

After school, McFist imprisons Howard by luring him through a limo and tries to find out who the Ninja is using a mind reader. Randy, having realized the true meaning of the Nomicon's advice, sings the Whoopee World commercial song so that he won't think of anything else. Howard ends up singing the song while the webshow is airing, much to the annoyance of Heidi.

NinjaNomicon Lesson

The Way to Forget is to Remember.


  • Whoopee World is an obvious spoof of the real world amusement park Six Flags.
    • In addition, the Whoopee World theme song is identical in rhythm to the Six Flags theme (a remix of "We Like to Party" by Vengaboys).
  • This episode's title is a reference to the show Gossip Girl.
  • This is the episode where the Robo-Apes first appeared.
  • This is the first episode where Randy is in the NinjaNomicon at in the beginning of the episode.
  • Howard learns a lesson in this episode and takes the blame for the situation for the first time - though still finding a way to throw some blame on Randy.
  • This episode was viewable on Disney XD's website right after the premiere of Last Stall on the Left making it the second episode available to view.
  • Randy mentions the mind-wipe when talking to Howard in the beginning is a foreshadowing of The Ultimate Lesson he will learn in "The Ninja Identity".
  • When Randy strikes the Robo-Ape in the face with the coffee pot, a "Wilhelm scream" is heard.
  • Goof: Randy disappears when he and the Robo-ape were peeking on Principal Slimovitz as a baby cowboy.
  • When Randy making a smirking face. Same as Spongebob's smile from SpongeBob SquarePants episode Just One Bite.
  • Running Gag:
    • Randy spat out his soda he was sipping all over Heidi.
