The DNA Splicer is a device that combines, reconstructs, and modifies genetic DNA. Spindly Tam kept it in his temple, in a private collection of items he has gathered. While taking Sparky and The Junior Galactic Guardians League on a tour, Sparky touched it, and gummed it up with residue from a caramel apple he was eating.
Later, while Spindly Tam was cleaning, the residue caused the device to malfunction, firing and merging Spindly Tam with the dreaded Soo-Soo Fly, transforming him into Soo-Soo Tam. Fortunately, Betty and her team managed to reverse the effects and restore Spindly Tam to normal. (Spliced)
