Episode 1 is the pilot episode of CuddlesWorks, and the first episode overall.
Cuddles goes in an elevator, realizing he had a good time hanging out with Giggles. He finds out Splendont is in the elevator. Realizing he needs to die (or by the cases, defeated), he punches him multiple times, until he finally does a kick that sends him flying away. He jumps happily, and then he walks to the control panel. He selects the top floor. It goes up. Cuddles gets shocked as the elevator falls, but then he realizes the elevator just crashed. He facepalms, ashamed, only for the elevator doors to open, which makes him relieved. He exits the elevator, but he later finds Mega Splendont. He does a big "Noooooooooo!" in panic, however, he later gets angry, and defeats him in a single punch. Mega Splendont then flies off the building, and when he lands, the screen shakes. Cuddles jumps on the building in excitement as he realizes he saved the day. Later, he does a big "Yaaaaaaay!" before the episode ends.
- When Cuddles punches Mega Splendont, he punches in between his legs, although he still flies off the building as if he punched a part of his body.
- The numbers on the elevator are dark orange when Cuddles fights Mega Splendont, goes to the top floor, and when the elevator falls, but when the elevator lands, they are light orange.
- Cuddles says "It's time you got pushed off the roof!" when facing Mega Splendont, although he still does goof #1.
- When Cuddles pushes the button on the elevator, he actually points towards it rather than pushing it.
