In this prequel video, we see scientists Burton, Berecca, and Jon working on fruitless experiments to create Ninja-Gum when one time, it finally works. While the Ninja-Gum gives people seemingly superhuman abilities, it turns out that Jon is actually part of some organization that wants to use the new invention to ill purpose. At the end, Burton and Berecca find out that eating the gum has the side effect of turning those that eat them back into children, and must now find a way to turn back into their adult selves.

The animation is produced by Marza and features Max Mittelman as Burton, Kailey Snider as Berecca, and Regi Davis as Ron.
