Halloween has come to town, and Fanboy and Chum Chum can't wait to go trick-or-treating that night. When they meet a pumpkin monster, Mr. Trick, they end up tasting a treat that causes them to lose their taste sense so they'll no longer taste candy. Now, the boys have to grab 1,000 screams for Mr. Trick, otherwise they'll never have their taste again.
This is a tale of two boys who just couldn't wait for...
"...is gonna be the most..."
"Didn't you wear this costume
"Close, but this isn't my costume."
"This year, we're coming home with..."
"Trick-or-treat? It's 6:00 in the morning!"
"Really? Is it that early?"
Fanboy thinks of the greatest place: The Frosty Mart!
"We're closed for paranormal activity."
"It's part of the Frosty Mart Halloween promotion for Frosty Screamy Scream..."
"But Boog let it out of its display case!"
"He has been worried ever since."
Chum Chum's pail is about to explode.
"I didn't put anything in it yet!"
"I'm coming for you, Lenny!"
Oz's Candy Ark
"You weren't followed here, were you?"
"Well, come on in! I made some cereal."
Oz had a vision, which inspired him to make it.
"I can't help you, but there is one place."
Meeting Mr. Trick
Outside the jack o' lantern house.
"We got empty pails here!"
"Oops! Sorry, wrong face."
"There. That's a lot less scary, isn't it?"
The floors are made from pumpkin guts.
"It looks like Halloween, but it tastes like Thanksgiving!"
Mr. Trick does his mean "candyman" bit...
"I do have a trick-I mean, treat for both of you."
Going down the candy slide.
Sword fighting with candy canes
Fanboy loves hopping on taffy bags!
Time to run the peppermint-go-round!
To wrap it up, we have a march with our fellow treats.
Stealing the Taste
"Oh boys, you're not finished!"
"Ugh! I can't eat another bite!"
"Right, not until tonight."
"But I saved the best for last."
"Once you taste this candy, you'll never taste anything again."
"Well, I guess one more wouldn't hurt."
"Hey, what's that coming out of my mouth?"
"I can feel my taste buds popping!"
No taste from Chum Chum, either.
Well...Fanboy can taste a toilet.
Mr. Trick's Mission
Fanboy and Chum Chum blame Mr. Trick for taking their taste away.
Mr. Trick explains a backstory of all this, especially underwear jokes.
"We've got lots of that!"
"You're to fill this jar with 1,000 screams by sundown, only then, you will have your taste back."
"You know, that would've been a good scream for the jar. Umm, anyone using that mystical scream cooler?"
Chum Chum worries that they'll never make it.
Fanboy tries to think of an idea to scare people from their house.
"You mean...make a haunted house?"
"The illustrated guide to horrible creatures."
"Woah Kyle, you'd better hold off on screaming."
"We got a cooler to fill!"
"What the devil are you talking about?"
"We're gonna use spaghetti for worms..."
"And peel grapes for eyeballs!"
"Do you have any spaghetti worms or grape eyeballs?"
Kyle points out that he has real eyeballs.
Fanboy wonders if they would also need either spaggatini or bowtie pasta.
"The only reaction you two will evoke are..."
"You have a better idea than..."
That grumble sounds a little
"Hey Kyle, if we're holding hands, what will we do with the spaghetti and grapes?"
"Enough with the spaghetti and grapes!"
"Oh, powerful spirits from beyond, we who are among the living..."
"...who humbly implore..."
Fanboy tells Kyle he's in a hurry.
Kyle's avatar state activates
"Demon from the depths of the underworld, I summon thee."
Yo, Duke and Lupe release their screams...
...and so do Chuggy and Fankylechum.
"Hurry up and collect your screams, I can't summon him forever!"
Not even a ghost can open a cooler.
Kyle's summon energy runs out.
Everyone thought it's great.
"Now, the evil pumpkin guy will never give us our taste back!"
"Oh, no one, Kyle. Just an evil Jack O' Lantern who used magical candy to steal our taste and magically put it in a magic jar."
"You wouldn't understand."
I can't see my friends so sad like this!
Hmmph! 'Magical pumpkin man'.
Well, this town isn't big enough for...
Two practitioners of the Dark Arts.
Back to Mr. Trick
"This isn't screams! It's sliced turkey!"
"So, you think you could come to MY town to cast a spell on MY two idiots?!?"
"Kyle, what are you doing?"
"I am the most powerful wizard in town, so hear my warning..."
"Give these boys back their taste..."
"Or face the wrath of Kyle the Conjurer!"
"Is that your angry face?"
Kyle suddenly completes the mission
"Nope, this is!"
The boys suddenly remember what to do.
They collect the screams.
They get one more at last!
Kyle is tired from all the screaming.
The boys get their taste back.
The Horrible Result
"So, what do you need the screams for, anyway?"
Mr. Trick says the screams make a vortex that destroys all the candy in the world.
The boys blame Kyle and tell him he's over his head.
They kick him out as a result.
"Halloween will have nothing but tricks!"
Yo and Lupe suddenly lose their candy to the vortex...
...and Duke and Nancy lose theirs, too.
Fanboy about to get back at Mr. Trick.
"Eat my taste, pumpkin face!"
"Now I have a sudden craving for..."
"And what happened next, a miriacle they say..."
"Mr. Trick's pumpkin head grew 2 smiles that day!"
"You put a smile on both my faces. How can I thank you?"
"Umm, you can quit hogging over taste for starters."
Mr. Trick awards the boys with their taste.
"Now all the candy is going down that hole."
Oz's Candy Ark plugs up the hole.
"Um, Oz? Why is your glorious Candy Ark rumbling?"
The vortex turns into a gyser of candy!
Yo and Lupe get their candy back...
...and so do Duke and Nancy.
"My candy! My glorious candy!"
Fanboy tells Oz to cheer up.
"They don't call me Mr. Trick for nothing."
