As a raving lunatic holds the world at bay with the ultimate weapon on destruction, it's up to brilliant, yet utterly clumsy, chief inspector Jacques Clouseau to fight for the future of all mankind.

Each show requires eight judges--four parents and four students. Judges are chosen through random selection the week before Family Weekend.
