"Dinky's Nose for News" is an episode from The All-New Popeye Hour's "Dinky Dog" segment for Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with King Features Syndicate. It first aired on September 30, 1978 and was directed by Ray Patterson and Carl Urbano. Monica was voiced by Julie Bennett, Sandy was voiced by Jackie Joseph and Uncle Dudley was voiced by Frank Nelson.
As Uncle Dudley is looking for a late night snack, Dinky's antics attract the attention of an officer on patrol and a reporter looking for a story. Monica and Sandy offer to find him that story.
The next day, while on the assignment, Dinky chases a small UFO that is scouting Earth for an invasion. This chase creates chaos for the girl on a bridge and in the sewers. Dinky finally catches the UFO but the girls think it is a toy. It does however give them an idea to go to a Frisbee tournament.
They fail to find a story there either. All the Frisbees lead the tiny aliens to believe that Earth has many spacecraft and they should not invade.
