This episode was aired on February 1, 2020.
Bowser's been a baaaad father.
The video starts with Bowser returning from his three-day fishing trip with Mario, saying he would want to be invited again since he had no responsibilities. Just as he started unpacking, he realized his castle was void of his kids. Then, he saw a note from the Child Protection Service agency. Thinking it was a prank by his kids, he realized that actually, his kids were taken away from him due to his neglectful attitude to them. Bowser felt heartbroken knowing his children were gone.
Mario later visited the castle asking Bowser what was wrong, As Bowser told Mario what had happened, Mario suggested doing a cooking show to completely forget this ordeal but Bowser declined, saying he couldn't do anything for a while until he got his kids back. Mario took this seriously and offered to help him. They both went to the Child Protection Services agency, at which a receptionist both denied their requests. She recognized Bowser for being infamous for neglecting his kids and his duties of a father for his antics such as his "memey adventures". Bowser then wanted to show her that actually, he was a good parent despite what other people said. So he showed video footage of him taking care of his kids, knowing that a good father would always record family moments.
As he showed footage of him being a good parent, Bowser realized with horror that all the clips (such as Bowser letting Bowser Jr. get run over by a car, throwing the Koopalings at Saiko Bichitaru, giving Bowser Jr. a real gun when he wanted a toy gun and ditching his children to go fishing with Mario) just proved the Child Protection Service receptionist her point right. He quickly destroyed the projector and she just told him to attend Parenting classes, saying that if he got an A, he would be allowed to have his kids back. Bowser was considering taking the class but Mario threw that idea away, saying he had an even better idea.
That idea was to adopt a new kid. Bowser however wanted his kids back but Mario insisted. He first tried Baby Yoda but Bowser said no, causing Mario to chuck Yoda like trash. Mario then showed Bowser a trash bin as another baby, explaining that it neither cried nor gave out crap but instead was fed it. Knowing that Mario's ideas were horrible, Bowser just decided it was best to attend the class.
At the Parenting class with Peach Toadstool as the teacher, she instructed the entire class to take good care and responsibility in looking after a simulation baby (a Melon for Bowser, an Eggplant for Mario) until the assignment time was up.
Bowser and Mario both started taking care of their simulation babies, Bowser began taking care of his simulation baby very well during his time together with it, while Mario destructively abused his baby, not knowing that he hadn't done a good job.
In the end, all students did well for their class (except for Mario, whom Peach hoped he would never have kids knowing what he would do to them). She then told Bowser he got an A and that his kids were waiting outside. Bowser threw aside the melon in shock (Though Mario wanted to know if Incineroar wanted to eat it or not) and ran out to meet them. As he hugged them, Mario then asked again if they could do a Cooking Show. Bowser happily agreed and the two went off, causing Bowser Jr. to swear, knowing they once again had been neglected.
