If The Shoe Fits....
"A Hard Day's Fight" is a Season 3 episode of Atomic Betty
Betty, Sparky, and X-5, as the band Jackamoose, finish a music video, to be shared only amongst themselves. However, Sparky decides to publish their music video (with an album cover reminiscent of Abbey Road.), which becomes a massive hit. Admiral DeGill is shocked at a large group of intergalactic fans of Jackamoose converging on Moose Jaw, and orders Betty and company to fix the problem they have caused, as the fans may compromise the security of Galactic Guardian headquarters.
To do so, they announce a farewell concert to be held in the school gymnasium. Maximus makes note of this, and notices that the music Jackamoose is playing was plagiarized. Arriving on Earth, Maximus, after a brief confrontation, convinces Betty of the truth; Sparky had indeed plagiarized Maximus' lyrics — it was a song that he knew as a child while watching Maximus perform the music on 3-V. Betty, however, is unconvinced that Maximus was the original author, so Maximus decides to perform the music himself, which causes the fans' attentions to turn to Maximus. Maximus and Minimus make a hasty retreat, as they are chased away from Earth by their new fans.
