The Pearls Nuclear Crisis was a nuclear conflict that took place when the crocs deployed a Russian nuclear missle near Zebra's house in an attempt to kill him.
Sitting in the diner, Zebra and Goat read in the newspaper the Russians were selling of their stock of nuclear missiles. Both expressed alarm at this. Meanwhile in Russia, two of the Crocs purchased one missle, and prepared to deploy it near Zebra's house.
Towards the end of the crisis, the crocs learned that the ensuing explosion would destroy their house too. Eet-a-Zeeb inc. decided to have a croc volunteer to take the bomb out to the desert, and dentonate it there. Floyd was the volunteer.
