The Hole Truth is the fifth episode in the Skylanders Academy television series.


The young Skylanders are assigned to spend a day as guards at Cloudcracker Prison, and the inmates try to trick the heroes into letting them escape.


After the events of the previous episode, Team Spyro, Kaos, Glumshanks and Dreamcatcher arrive at the ominous Cloucracker Prison, going through its various entrances. Under the eyes of guards, cameras and crazed prisoners and listening to the Skylanders' odd advice, Glumshanks remarks that the treatment appears inhumane, but Kaos is instead overjoyed, seeing it as an opportunity to make acquaintances with the greatest villains of Skylands. While announcing his plans aloud, however, he and his troll butler have grub thrown at them from over the walls.
