|Aaahh!!! Real Monsters|
A new perfume hits the stores and it causes quite a stink to the monsters who find the smell unbearable.
At Salon D'Orange, a human designer talks about working on his fragrance named Full Moon to the audience, having personally picked the city as the trial market for the scent. The Monsters are then seen entering a restroom via toilet and sneak into the room, where everyone is spraying the fragrance. As Ickis attempts to sneak up to scare them, he gets sprayed by the fragrance and soon, he and Oblina struggle to breathe the scent. Before the trio flees, Krumm uses two leaves from a potted plant to run through the room and grab the Full Moon fragrance to take back to the Academy and warn the others.
Back at the Monster Academy, The Gromble informs everyone about the perfume and the effects it has on the monsters. To demonstrate, he takes the Full Moon perfume and sprays it on flies, which cause them to drop dead instantly. Gromble reminds the students to "take care when you scare."
At a Department Store, Full Moon becomes prevalent and the monsters are having a hard time scaring humans due to getting caught by the perfume spray. At a local gym, a male athlete offers his friend the Full Moon perfume to spray on his body. Krumm is then seen hiding inside a locker to avoid the scent.
Back at the Monster Academy, Gromble suggests the monsters to scare humans from long distance instead. But this doesn't go well when Krumm tries to scare a couple looking through a telescope in the park from a far away hill, only for him to slip and injury himself. So Gromble tells the monsters that they should scare the humans in an enclosed area, where they can see them, but be protected from the toxic perfume. This, however, also proves futile when Oblina tries to scare a guy in the payphone and slams into the door. So Gromble suggests to use more elaborate tactics to scare humans. But it still turns unsuccessful when Ickis attempts to scare a human at the movie theater using a windmill as a jetpack and end up crashing outside. He gets injured as well.
Things go from bad to worse when the monsters view a commercial for the fragrance, with the announcer stating that Full Moon will be everywhere on earth, at the next full moon. Oblina realizes and tells the class that's within one week. This prompts the monsters to panic. Gromble tells his students that they need to remain calm and level-headed. Ickis promptly yells "If we don't scare, we're all gonna die!", causing the students to panic again. Gromble yells "Quiet!" , saying this is not the time to panic. Gromble reassures the students that they will prevail. But back at Gromble's room, he's writing a will leaving all his shoes to charities.
At the three young monsters' dorm, they try to contrive a way to fight of the perfume and when Krumm says that he smells worse than the perfume, Ickis and Oblina have an idea. Gromble also likes the idea and says that they need to get the stench out of Krumm. With the aid of the Academy doctor, they have him sweat and perspire, with the doctor then distilling the sweat in order to make a fragrant stench.
Later, The Monsters join Gromble to go to the L'Orange factory disguised as workers with a box filled with Krumm's stench. Upon getting in, they find the huge vat of Full Moon perfume. Before they can dump the stench though, they spot a pair of human workers, so Gromble orders Ickis quietly to grab the stench box, which the young monster complies to. As Gromble is prepared to throw the stench into the vat, however, he discovers that it is really a box of lunch and that Ickis grabbed the wrong box. At that moment, lunch break begins, requiring the monsters to sneak into the lunch room and continuously swap out the lunch boxes in a search. After a few misses, they eventually come across the pair they had initially seen and get the stench box back before they are the wiser. Racing against the clock, Gromble returns back to the huge vat of Full Moon perfume to dump the stench box in it on time. Gromble then tells the main trio that they must wait to see if the stench concoction works.
Later, the humans from around the world use the perfume and find that it has a horrible odor and the fragrance designer is arrest by the police for it. At the Academy, the Monsters sell the stench fragrance to the other monsters with Krumm sweating it out, despite Ickis and Oblina pressuring him.
