|The Troublesome Trio|
|Name||The Troublesome Trio|
|Job||To prank anyone in sight...|
|Members|| Explorer 767|
The Troublesome Trio is a very famous group of penguins known for their frequent pranking. They are the masters of all "prank-ation", "cuckoo-ization", and "bizzare-ation". They have a nemisis called The Ghost Gang.
 Trio Members
- Explorer 767-- The mastermind of the group. He is cunning, quick, and clever. Explorer thinks up the pranks, with ideas from his subordinates, Barkjon, and Happyface. He also gets into tight situations a lot, like being trapped between a very angry Mabel and a cliff with a 900 ft. drop. He created the Trio and recruited the other two.
- Barkjon-- He often provides the necessary equipment for the pranks. For example, Explorer once made use of the large mirrors in Barkjon's bathroom to pull off a Pepper's Ghost prank on TurtleShroom, with Happyface as the ghost. He also tends to be too loud, say the wrong thing, or accidently mess up the project. After he was seen riding his board and whoopee-cushioning somebody at the same time, Explorer recruited him.
- Happyface141-- Happyface is the perfect scout, and provides important info during major operations, like The Waffle Operations, during which the trio successfully attempted to pour waffle batter on Str00del and Mabel. Since he is a light footed penguin, he can break into houses. Happyface makes lousy operation and project names so lets Barkjon and Explorer make them. When Explorer saw him pranking Mabel with expert reconnaissance during a South Pole Council meeting, he got recruited.
 Honorary Members
- Fred 676-- As the older brother of Explorer, Fred supervises the trio on quests that involve physics and math.
- Clyde, Danny, Xavier, and Scooter-- The puffle quartet sometimes plans the pranks of the Trio: Clyde is the brains, Xavier and Scooter build/buy/get any neccessary equipment, and Danny usually does all the talking. That is, he uses his smooth talk and sarcasm to manipulate other penguins, or talk the Trio's way out of trouble. As Clyde puts it:
"Sly, dude. Sly..."
- Flystar55555-- When the superhero isn't on one of his quests, Flystar will sometimes help out with the Trio's troublemaking schemes.
- Tails6000:He is not to be messed with. He may prank at any time. He is usually used for pranks that require a distraction.
- Metalmanager-- A tough yet funny penguin. He can prank someone without them knowing that he was there. Excellent equipment to prank, except that the equipment is few but strong. He only has one flaw, and thats's that if he sees a cookie, he will run for it, even if there's an anvil above his head!
- Billy Mays-- Though he never really pranks anyone, Billy is allways willing to supply the group with products such as OxiPie, Mighty Putty, and even Kaboom incase the group is forced to clean up a mess they made afterwards. He's even signed a contract with them to give them his products 50% off. Seeing as he usually doubles, or triples the amount of the product, it's a very good deal.
- Triskelle-- The royalty is quite pranker himself. He usually uses himself to distract people by fainting.
- Explorer Pie Tank-- EPT helps the team and supervises them on a lot of quests.
Recently, Happyface inheirted a mansion in The Happyface State. One day he came across a giant underground room with posters of STINC on it. He transformed the room for the Trio's planning and no one can enter it except for Trio members. You must have a flipperprint to enter... or be a ghost...
Warning: The trio is EVIL!!! Hilarious, but EVIL!!! MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
 Operation Waffle
- Project Batter-- This step involved mixing waffle batter without Mabel and Str00del getting suspicious. This was pulled off by Barkjon pretending to pass out flyers about a waffle/pancake bake sale to the two puffles.
- Project Pipe Dream-- This involved making a way to transfer the waffle batter from the kitchen to the living room. This was done by making a sort of vacuum pump that would suck the batter from the kitchen to the desired destination. Excuse: "We need a delivery system in the igloo."
- Finale-- This is the final step where the trio loaded the waffle batter and managed to shoot it at Mabel and Str00del. It was a total sucess. (e.g. PWNAGE)
 Operation Pepper's Ghost (on Professor Shroomsky)
Operation Pepper's Ghost was just a really scary prank that nearly scarred Prof. Shroomsky's mental health for life.
- Project Stage Set-- Designing the set-up for the prank. Involved getting the mirror from Barkjon's igloo to Explorer's igloo.

 Operation Spaz
Operation Spaz is not a prank, but a mission they went on in order to find the truth about The Sapie Brothers. The plan is sure to take more than 2 weeks.

- Project Super Spy 2-- While the brothers are (hopefully) sleeping, Happyface breaks in and rigs the Cathedral with all sorts of traps and tricks, from hidden whoopee cushions to Blue Screen Of Death Screensavers.
- Finale-- On Happyface's signal, Explorer and Barkjon hack into the sever and change the settings around the Cathedral indoors to make it seem as if it was daytime. The Sapie Brothers (probably) wake up tired and groggy, and will be easy victims of the mischevious traps set up by Happyface.

- Finale-- EPT starts shooting pies at Mabel at the top of the building, and Mabel gets hit every time.
 PLOP Contract
One day, one of the Trio members became bored and wrote a strange, completely random, and absolutely nonsense-based "contract". It has no true meaning, it's just a bunch of random words and phrases.
- The Trio has been sued many times. Once, the GourdZoid Council condemned them for throwing snowballs at the Czar (is that even a crime?). They took time in jail, but shortly afterward escaped in an very complex plan that they didn't even remember later. Prisoners are eager to find out.
- Victims of the StormWorm 'insist that the creature is by far a superior prankster than the Trio, but naturally, the Trio deems this impossible.
- To get in the Trio, one must comply to the PLOP License (Pranker's License Of Pranking), written by Explorer. Many a soul has read the license and fainted. Even Bill Gates himself stated that it was "the Antarctic version of the EULA." Read it and weep!
- The Trio plans on pranking Charon and will need the hononary members.
- Kwiksilver was once said to be the equivalent of The Trio after he pranked Explorer on The Moon Mission, but Explorer insisted firmly that Kwiksilver was not that good.
- After saying that statement, Explorer was drenched by a falling bucket of water.
- There is a group simaler to them
- Alex12345a is quite afriad of the trio, as he gets pranked easily, even by himself!
- Fudd really wants to join, because he is good at pranking people
- Nicktang10 sometimes emails prank plans to the trio. Most of the time, for pranking Mabel (again).
