"Saving Face" is the 4th episode in season 1 of Kappa Mikey.
- Mikey gets a pimple. The pimple threatens his status as a teen idol and in an attempt to hide his pimple from his fans, he betrays his best friends to a tabloid publisher who publishes the stories.
Meanwhile, Lily finds a new arch-rival named Socky, a sock puppet who replaced her as the Beauty Cream spokesperson.
- This episode is Socky's first appearance.
- Scoops is an anime version of J. J. Jameson from Spiderman.
- It would make sense for people in Japan to freak out after seeing Mikey's pimple since it is mostly anime; neither male nor female get them.
