My Way or the Sky Way is the second episode in the Skylanders Academy television series.


Jet-Vac uses a potential plumbing disaster to teach Spyro about the "Skylander way", but they clash over Jet-Vac's strict rules and planning.


The episode begins with Master Eon calling Team Spyro on the Library for a mission briefing. However, though Eruptor, Spyro and Stealth Elf voice their hopes on fighting villains, Eon explains that their mission is to solve the clogging of the basement pipes with beard hair, to prevent a flood and a large plumbing bill. While the other Skylanders leave eagerly, Spyro takes his time, prompting Jet-Vac to question him. Spyro explains that he expected a bigger mission after their defeat of Kaos earlier, and Jet-Vac retorts that the Skylanders have more services to offer other than fighting evil, and that the dragon should have to learn how to act the "Skylander Way" with said missions. Spyro, however, pays more attention to his breath, worried that he had eaten a rat, and the Sky Baron angrily makes him follow the others.
