The year was 1985, and the

number-one show on TV was...

Evil Bratt.

The show starred young Balthazar Bratt

as a child prodigy

and criminal mastermind

bent on world domination.

There he is!

Get him!

I've been a Goooood boy!

Bratt was the biggest child actor

of the 1980s,

striking a chord with audiences

all over the world.

- Yay!

- Yeah!

Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo!

There he is!

Get him!

But it all came to an end

in season three,


I've been a bad boy!

- The young star experienced

an unexpected growth spurt.

- Boy? Boy?

The show was canceled.

Hollywood rejected him

and Bratt quickly plunged

into a downward spiral.

Starting to actually believed he was

the character he played on TV.

What are you looking at?

Leading us all to wonder...

Where is he now?

You know what, Clive?

Playing a villain on TV was fun,

but being one in real life

is even better.

Heist music!

Here it comes.



What are you doing?

How is that heist music?

Sorry, my bad.





Stop right...


Sir, the ship has been boarded by

some kind of... monster.

Wait, that's not a monster.

That's a man wearing shoulder pads.

There's only one supervillain whose

fashion sense is quite that dated,

Balthazar Bratt.

Blast it!

The Dupont Diamond is on that ship!

I want every agent in the area

on the scene immediately.

Ha, ha, ha... !


We're already here!

Agents Grucy are closing in fast.

Yes... wait, wha?

What did you call us?

Grucy. You know,

Gru and Lucy mushed together.

Try it.


I like it, but not a lot,

I don't like it.


On the ground!

The jewel!


Go, go, go!

Don't move.


Too late again, Gru.

Ha, ha, ha... !

WHAAA... ?

He's getting away!!

That's what he thinks.

- Wahooo!

- Ha, ha!

Go, go!


Go, go.

Go, go, go!

I don't think

we can make it, Gru.

We can make it!

We can make it... !

No, we can't!

Get ready!

Get ready for whaaa... !


How're you doing?

Are you okay?

- Hello.

- Oh.

You guys are so cute.

Go get him, Gru Gru!

Hello, Gru.

How's your transition coming?

You know, from world's worst villain

to world's worst agent?

Oh, that's hilarious!

You should be on TV!

Oh, that's right,

you were...

but then you got canceled.

Ha ha!

What about that?


Oh! Girls !


Dance fight!


Alpha team, the diamond is secure.

Come and pick up the package.

Copy that, Alpha team on approach.


- Did you actually think

I was unconscious?

- Oh.

It's called acting, hoser!

And clearly I've still got it!

I've been a baaaaaaaad boy!

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!


Don't move!

Son of a Betamax!

Go! Go!

Get him! Get him!

He's getting away!

This isn't over, Gru!

You hear me?

This is not over!


Well, I still have the diamond!

Happy birthday to you.

Happy birthday to You

Happy birthday, dear Derailment .

Happy birthday to you.

- Ha, ha, ha, ha!

- Ha, ha, ha, ha!

- Hey, you ready?

- Yeah!


Party, everyone!



Watch it!

I can't believe

Bratt got away, again.

How is this possible?


And it's not just that he got away!

It's that he's so smug about it!

I've been a baaaaaaaad boy!

Edna, hey.

Looking hot... today.

Got the... cats on you.

And it was just so humiliating.

Dangling there in the

bubble-gum Speedo.

And I didn't have time to go

to the gym this week!

And I had a big breakfast!

I was feeling a little bloated!

You know what?

He's not even worth talking about.

I don't even want to waste

another breath about the guy.

And another thing!

Next time I see Bratt, I will

moonwalk all over his stupid face!

Thank you all for coming

in such short notice.

It is with great sadness that

I inform you that as of today

I am retiring as

head of the LVA.

Oh no.

Your new leader is coming directly from

head office, effective immediately.

She is the very gifted, very ambitious


As I look out over all of your faces,

I am flooded with so many memories.

- Oh boy, this is a snoozed.

- I... Excuse me.

Hardy in the . We understand.

You're old, you're not , you're done.

Let me breathe in.


Broke a little sweat there.

First order of business.

Which one of you losers

is Agent Cru?!

Uh that would be me.

Although I don't know

if I'd say 'loser' per Se,

kind of a...


Oh, it's the girls.

Not a good time.

- Hey!

- Aaah!

Yes, sir.

Huh, uh... ma'am.

You're making me nervous.

How could you let Balthazar Bratt,

the AVL's most-wanted villain,

just get away?

That is the opposite of

what we do here!

Okay, okay, yes,

maybe he got away... again,

but he didn't get the diamond!

And I am this close

to bringing him in.

This close!



You're Hired!



This is totally not fair.

Gru is a great agent.

You know what?

If you hire him,

you're going to have to fire me,

sister sister.

And do you really want to do that?

Do ya?

No, no, no, no, no.

Well, I guess she did!

Honey, you didn't have to do that.

I know how much

you love your job.

Well, I love other things more.

You know, we're going to

have to tell the girls.

Can you do it?

The whole Mom thing is

still kind of new to me.

Oh, sure.


- Aloha!

- Ahola!


This is unexpected.

Well, you never got to go

on a honeymoon, so

We made you dinner!

It's a luau!

We got pineapples and

coconuts and lukuleles!

- Oh ho, yeah.

- Yeah.


Ya malatika tika, hee ha!

Oww oww oww ah ah ah!

Oww oww oww ah ah ah!


The soup of the day,


madame and monsieur Off.

The Sonic Show were my idea.


Looks too good to even eet!

Am I right?

- But I made it for you.

- Oh.

Good soup! I love the combination

of gummy bears and eat!

I'm gonna hold it

in my mouth,

because it's so good

I don't want to swallow it.


How was work?

Did you take that guy down?

Did anything explode?

Well, actually,

today Lucy and I

were invited to not work

at the LVA anymore.



You got Hired?

- Yes.

- What?

But don't worry,

I'm sure we'll get

new jobs real soon.

Even better ones.

What's better than being

super-cool secret Villians?

Oh, I know!

You could gamble online!

That's what Wedge's dad does!

Okay, we will definitely

look into that.

That's a good suggestion.

And let's not go over

to Wedge's house anymore.


Guys, shhhhhh.

I don't think you heard me right.

No, no, no, no, no, no, this does not mean

that we are going back to being villains.

- Oh.

- Oh.


You weren't like this!

Okay, alright,

I get it.

My Dear Minions This new Villian wants to combine Human And Names

Guys This Is Very Bad


but our life of crime is over!


Mel, you're with me on this, right?


- Good...

- Yay!

- Boring!

- Boo!
