The Graduate is the second-last episode of the third season of Meerkat Manor.


The Commandos quench their first at a waterhole. Their young member Wilson shows interest in leaving the family to start a mob of his own. Half a mile away, roving male Zaphod encounters a black-backed jackal but flees before he's spotted. Due to his lack of success in roving he heads back to Whiskers territory. At home Rocket Dog spots roving male Wilson and mates with him. However Zaphod returns and scares off Wilson.

Wilson stumbles upon Mozart, the sole survivor of the Starsky Mob. They mate and spend the night together. But overnight a fire on the surface ignites, causing smoke to enter burrow. By morning both Mozart and Wilson emerge alive and well. Wilson takes Mozart back into Commandos land in the hope that she'll be accepted into the group. When they find the Commandos they discover that the group is in the middle of a battle with the Whiskers. Wilson leaves Mozart to join the fight for his family and is attacked by Rocket Dog. Out of fear Mozart flees the area and doesn't return. Wilson stays up late that night waiting for her. The following morning he leaves early to search for her, but he eventually discovers that she had been killed overnight, most likely by a predator.
