Panic In The Mailroom - Synopsis
In the bowels of Gru's secret lair, below his house, there is a mailroom where packages of all kinds are received on an hourly basis. Two minions are assigned there to monitor, mark and send packages through different routing tubes to various recipients elsewhere in the lair. Mike, the supervisor, is an easy-going fellow who's a bit of a neat freak, and keeps pictures of fluffy kittens pinned to the wall at his work station. His co-worker Ken, however, is something of a goof-off and a shirker, who finds inordinate boredom in his job. He tries to alleviate that boredom with handheld video games and a regular supply of snacks.
But one day Mike spots him goofing off, and gives him a gentle reprimand. Ken is not impressed and, when the latest batch of packages start coming in, Ken decides to make a game out of it, rolling his chair around the room while he tosses the packages into their various routing tubes. But when a large package of the dangerous mutagenic serum PX-41 comes in, and Ken tosses it haphazardly into its receiving tube, it gets stuck, causing the tube's suction to back up. Mike, frustrated with Ken's monkey business, yells at him and then goes to clear the tube. But the box finally buckles under the back pressure, and some PX-41 serum is sprayed onto Mike. Chaos ensues!
Puppy - Synopsis
Poor Dave--he's a sensitive, caring sort of minion, and nothing would make him happier than to have the chance to experience the joy of owning his own puppy dog. Especially when he happens to glance out of the window in Gru's house one day, and sees so many people walking their own dogs. So he tries to convince Kyle to go for a walk with him. But Kyle will have none of it. Not to be deterred, Dave seeks out other options. An attempt with a ladybug proves fruitless, and Dave begins to lose heart. Until a strange, but cute and sentient little alien spaceship happens upon him, and brings him all the joy he'd ever hoped for, as only a minion can!
Soon Dave is teaching the little alien new tricks, feeding it cheese puffs, walking it on a leash, and just generally bonding with the little fellow. That is, until one day the little alien doesn't want to play anymore. He's sad...lonely. Longing for his home. Dave, being ever the bright, optimistic and sensitive minion he is, sets about helping the little guy to get back home! And in the process, earns for himself and his fellow minions more than any of them bargained for!
Training Wheels - Synopsis
Agnes, like most kids, loves ice cream. So when the ice cream truck comes around the neighborhood on his regular rounds, she joins the kids on her bicycle to race for the truck and get her share! But she's not so good at handling that bicycle, and she ends up taking a spill, which brings her to tears! All the other kids are rushing off to get their ice cream, and she's stuck sitting on the road with no ice cream!
But it won't be a problem for long--three of the minions are on the case! Using their skills and talents to help one of their most favorite humans, the three minions set about constructing her a bike like no other...one which will guarantee her first dibs on ice cream from now on! And Agnes couldn't possibly be happier or more grateful! But when a jewel thief, making off with a sack of stolen goods from a recent heist, tries to make off using the ice cream truck as a getaway vehicle, it's Agnes to the rescue!
