All–You-Can- Eat Meatball Day came just once a year. George had been waiting all month for that day, a day almost bigger than his birthday!

Something pretty big.That “something” is the speedy Meatballs O’Matic machine. In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more. Determined to help his friend, George goes on a mission to enter the Chef’s meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest…inRome! With every swing and flip, George will take the audience on a fun-filled adventure where he’ll learn more aboutRome...and meatballs...and the “secret ingredient” to cooking!
