Act I - Epic Comedy Adventure
The annual Mix Festival is here; a day to celebrate the power of the cubits. However, due to a certain sandwich-loving Electroid, all of the Hamlogna Sandwiches were eaten, leaving the other Electroids angry with him. Due to this, Teslo asks all of the leaders of their respective tribes to come with him to get more.At the same time, Major Nixel appears in a metal cloud floating above and lets loose his devestating new weapon - the Mega Nixel Mixel Nixer - onto the festival, making every other Mixel at the party become a zombie-like Nixel. With all of their cubits destroyed, it's up to the leaders to save their friends and Mixels Land. Gobba has a cubit, but Flain says to save it for another time. Krader also says that the only way to find more is to go to Mixel Mountain for the rainbow cubits. So, they all head there. Gobba ends up using and wasting his cubit with Kraw, but everyone finally reaches the top of the mountain and hits the giant rainbow cubit, letting tons more loose.
Meanwhile, Major Nixel is baking cupcakes. However, the tribe leaders come back mixed, and defeat him, saving the festival and their friends in the process. Glomp, Scorpi and Magnifo finally show up, marking their debut in the series.
Act II - Murp Romp
The Glorp Corp and the Spikels are enjoying a day at Mixel Park. Torts admires how cute Scorpi is, and the latter then grows afraid of Glurt’s enthusiasm. The Spikels head off. Glomp disperses a Glorp Corp/Spikel cubit from his nose and throws it for Glurt to fetch, with the others running after him. Meanwhile, Flain, Lunk, Chomly, and Zaptor are enjoying a picnic, with Zaptor commenting on the calmness. They are suddenly interrupted by a puff of magic. The Wiztastics appear to advertise their next show, which Magnifo promises won’t be like the last one (which ended with him being burnt to ashes).
The Spikels come to see what is happening, and when the Wiztastics teleport away (out of embarrassment from Magnifo), they scare Scorpi again, causing him to run away and accidentally crash into the cubit that Glurt is carrying. This causes them to Murp, and they run off, coating the other parkgoers in slime. Both tribes that the murp belongs to end up chasing it (with some complications) all the way to the aforementioned magic show. They find it on the rafters above the stage, where they find Mesmo, and Torts mixes with him to get to the murp. While they accomplish this, Magnifo does a trick that blasts magic energy out of his hat and to the roof. This destroys the rafters and causes all of the Mixels to fall down, who then de-mix and are arranged in an upside-down pyramid pose.
After, Vulk claps and is revealed to be the only one who attended the show (and enjoyed it), which overjoys Magnifo. Then, he gets crushed by the other Mixels at the end.

- This episode first aired as part of the "Labor Day Weekend Clarence and Friends Sleepover" event.
- Mixel Mountain, Mixel Park, the Spiky Desert, and the Magic Tent are introduced.
- The Swamplands have yet to be introduced, however.
- Every Mixel from Series 3 debuted in this episode, in contrast to Coconapple (for Series 1) and Wrong Colors (for Series 2).
- There were multiple Mixes and Murps that appeared.
- This is the first episode where rainbow cubits are seen.

- This is the first time Kraw speaks without being part of a Mix or talking in unison with another Mixel.
- One of the bumpers in-between shorts includes a bunch of the Mixels logo falling on top of each other. This bumper originated from the beginning of some of the stop-motion videos from LEGO.
- This episode contains the most character appearances to date, with all nine original tribes including Major Nixel and his Nixels.
- Vulk being the DJ at the festival may be a reference to his appearance with headphones, a rainbow cubit, and the Cartoon Network Studios logo at the end of foreign airings of the shorts, plus at the end of this episode after the credits.
- This is the first time Major Nixel is referred to by name in the television series.
- Teslo's fear of heights, first mentioned in his bio, is shown in the series for the first time.
- Some items in Calling All Mixels (such as the Nixel cupcakes and the giant rainbow cubits) appear.
- On September 3, 2014, both Epic Comedy Adventure and Murp Romp became available to watch from the website.
- When the two shorts are counted separate, "Epic Comedy Adventure" would be the first season premiere to debut Series 3 Mixels without the episode focusing on them in any way, as the new tribe leaders only appeared at the end and had no lines.
- It is revealed that the rainbow cubits' power basically have the same powers of any cubit, but can mix any two Mixels no matter the tribes.
- This is the second time there is an intro. ("Coconapple")

- Teslo wears his exercise clothes again. ("Hot Lava Shower")
- When Teslo asks for the leaders of the tribes to come with him, Gobba goes. However, in his LEGO Mixels website bio, Jawg is referred to as the leader of the Fang Gang.
- This could imply that LEGO and Cartoon Network contradict each other about the canon of the franchise.
- Even though he spoke, Kraw is not listed in the end credits as one of the cast.
- When Krader glares at Zaptor, the gold part of his head is placed in the center of his face like a nose.
- When the leaders were running from the Nixels before they hid in the cave, Krader's big arm was on the wrong side.
- When the gang set off to get Hamlonga Sandwiches, Lunk's spikes from his neck disappear.

- [Cut to the top of the mountain. The six pop up and start speaking in awe. They run up to the rainbow Cubit. Millions of Nixels start jumping up from behind.
- Flain: All right, man, now’s a good time for the Cubit!
- Gobba: The Cubit? Ha-hahah-hah! I used it a long time ago!
- Major Nixel: Doot doot doo…perfect cupcakes!

- Glurt/Scorpi Murp: Murp! Murp! (Spins around, his tail chops down another tree and he leaves.)
- Glomp: If we don’t catch him quick, he’ll slice and slime up all of Mixel Land!
- Hoogi: And poor little Scorpi will miss our nightly nuzzle-wuzzle time! WHAT’LL WE DO?!
- Footi: (Puts arm around Hoogi) Hoogi, it’ll be fine. As long as we listen to our hearts. (Starts to ballet dance.) Yes, we must listen to our ever-loving hearts! And my heart says: to save our friends, (pulls out Glorp Corp/Spikel Cubit) we must mix ‘em to get ‘em.
- Vulk: (pops up from his seat) THAT WAS AMAZING! I LOVED IT! (Gives a single clap that echoes.)
