[Episode starts at the movie theater.]

Krumm: Yuck. Those give me the willies.

[While Ickis enters the movie room, he saw the glimpse at the movie.]

Cuddles: Wait a minute, Mr. Wumberjack. Don't hurt this tree. It's your friend.

Oblina: Ickis...

Ickis: Look at this. Isn't it creepy? [laughs] That bear is so cute.

Oblina: Which is precisely why it is against rules to watch movies like this.

Krumm: Yeah, buddy. This cute stuff is gonna give you pleasant dreams.

Ickis: Will you stop being such babies? This stuff is not gonna scare me. Look at it.

Krumm: I’d rather not.

Oblina: Shh.. Don't say I didn't warn you.

[Oblina and Krumm leave the movie theater.]

Ickis: Those guys are such scaredy monsters.

[For a moment, Ickis yelps as he saw Cuddles and covered his eyes.]

Girl: I love you Cuddles bear.

Cuddles: And I wuv you Tiffany. and I wuv all of you. Come on evewyone wet’s hug.

[Ickis gets disgusted and leave. Seeing this in the dump, Zimbo gets an idea.]

Krumm: Oh, it was hideous! I never seen such cuteness. It made my flesh crawl!

Dizzle: And Ickis stayed and watch the whole thing?

Zimbo: Peh! Not a chance. The little pipsqueak Ickis would’ve left five minutes.

Ickis: Wanna bet?

All: Ickis!

Dizzle: You sat through the whole movie? Weren't you scared?

Ickis: Scared? The cutesy stuff may scare some monsters, but not me!

Zimbo: Ah, perhaps a movie doesn’t scare Ickis, but I think Ickis would tell a different story, if Cuddles Bear was real, eh?

Ickis: Ha! That bear can walk up to be right now, and do you know what I’d say to that bear? I would say “Listen Mr. Cutesy-Boots, go sell your sugar somewhere else!” Then they’d throw him out at the dump. Oh yeah yeah, there were moments there when I didn’t think I’d be able to sit there and take it and then I thought to myself, “C’mon, you are Ickis!”

[Zimbo leaves the Snorch for a plan]

[Back at the dorm room]

Ickis: Hey, give me that! That's my snooky!

Oblina: Ickis, you are scared. Well, listen, what you saw was a made up movie, alright? And you are a real monster! Just repeat that over, and over, okay?

Ickis: Okay.

Oblina: Goodnight, Ickis. Goodnight, Krummy.

Krumm: Goodnight, Oblina.

Ickis: It's a movie and I'm a monster. Goodnight. It's a movie and I'm a monster. (Yawn) It's a movie and I'm a monster.

[The next morning.]

Krumm: So, how did you sleep buddy?

Ickis: Ah great. Nothing but nightmares.

Oblina: Oh good, then let’s go scare somebody! C’mon, early monster catches the worm!

Krumm: Great, I like worms.

[Meanwhile, outside the academy]

Zimbo: Ickis? Ickis? Come here.

Ickis: Hello? Who is it? Hello? Goodbye whoever you are. I got things to do.

[Before he can leave, he saw Cuddles but that would be Zimbo in his costume.]

Ickis: Cuddles the bear... Aaahh!!!

[Terrified, the imp screamed and runs away.]

Zimbo: I wuv you..

Oblina: Is that Ickis?

[Ickis continues screaming]

Krumm: Yeah, it's Ickis.

[Ickis catches up with the group]

Oblina: Ickis, what? What is it?

Ickis: [wheezing] Cuddles! The bear! He's here!

Oblina: Ickis, honestly. You did not see Cuddles the bear. You just think you did because you sat though that sweet cutesy movie, didn't you?

Krumm: Maybe you should go home and take a rest. We'll catch up with you later.

Ickis: Home alone?

Oblina: Yes. Krumm is right. Go home and rest. I’m sure the little rest, you’ll be fine!

Ickis: You think so?

Krumm: Good as garbage.

Oblina: And ready to scare!

Ickis: Ah, fine!

Krumm: He’s losin’ it!

Oblina: Oh yeah.

[Back at the dorm room]

Ickis: Who is it?

Zimbo: [OS.] It is Oblina, Ickis. I cannot get in. The door won't open.

[Ickis opens the door only to see Cuddles again. Screaming, he shuts the door and puts a lot of stuff so that Cuddles won't get in.]

Zimbo: Ickis, Ickis, I wuv you, I wuv you....

[Ickis is terrified and he continues shivering in fear until he hears Oblina's voice.]

Oblina: Ickis? It's Oblina. I can't get in, the door won't open.


Krumm: Ickis? You alright?

Ickis: I do believe in bears! I do believe in bears! I do believe in bears!

[At the Gromble’s room]

Gromble: Now, Ickis, think hard. Isn’t it possible, just possible that after seeing that movie, this… BEAR, you see is maybe, just maybe… a figment of your imagination?

Ickis: No. No Cuddles is real. He’s real, and he’s cute, and he’s gonna get me, and then, the bear’s gonna come after you! You’ll see!

Gromble: So, you think a real bear is loose in the dump?

Ickis: No, not like a real bear, like a bear-bear, he’s CUDDLES THE BEAR! Like a teddy bear, but he’s alive!

Oblina: Yes- of course he is, Ickis! If you say Cuddles is real, then, yeah! he’s real!

Ickis: Wait wait wait, you think I’m crazy?

Others: No.

Gromble: Of course not, Ickis. We just think. Could you wait in the hall for a moment?

Ickis: Well, I'm not crazy!

[He leaves]

Oblina: Bonkers.

Gromble: Nuts!

Krumm: Completely off his stick. [Oblina glares at Krumm for a bit moment.] Sorry.

Gromble: I’m going to recommend that we send Ickis to a quiet place we’ve set aside for monsters with special problems.

[Oblina imagines Moldydale, Home for Troubled Monsters]

Oblina: You know what?

Zimbo: Ickis...

[Ickis sees Cuddles again and squeals.]

Oblina: It’s really not that bad.

Gromble: Maybe you're right.

Ickis: [appearing again screaming] He's out there!!

Oblina: He can handle it.

[Back at the dump]

Oblina: Ickis, the only way you are going to put this silly thing behind you is by moving on! We are going to a toy store to scare! From now on, it is back to the old fun-loving irrepressible Icki, right? Right?

[Ickis disappeared again.]

Oblina: Ickis?

[Ickis goes back to the academy]

Zimbo: Boo, I wuv you, Ickis.

[Ickis screams and runs away]

Zimbo: Don't you want a hug?

[He hides in the auditorium]

Zimbo: Kissy, kissy, kissy, I going to smother you in kisses. Kisses in hugs.

[Zimbo takes off his costume.]

Zimbo: Ai caramba, it is hot in there!

Ickis: D’oh, why that little fluttering one legged... D’oh, I’m gonna… (Mischievous laugh.)

[Back in the hallway]

Ickis: Oh help me, oh somebody please help me!


Zimbo: I'm coming to get you Ickis. If you would just slow down.

(Ickis scares Zimbo)

[At the doorway]

Krumm: Nope, he's not in there.

Zimbo: Help me. Oh somebody please.

[Oblina and Krumm follow the noise only to bump into the costumed bear which Zimbo was wearing.]

Zimbo: Please, please hide me. He's crazy.

Ickis: No. I'm not.

[Ickis then grabs Cuddles again. Causing his head to pop off revealing Zimbo in front of Krumm and Oblina.]

Zimbo: Okay fabulous,..Well that was a splendid joke. Don't you think?

[At the torture chamber]

Zimbo: Oh somebody please, enough of that cutesy, footsy music! Snorch, my friend, Zimbo is sorry, Zimbo can’t take no more of this music! Please, Snorch, have a heart!

Gromble: Play it again, Snorch.

[The Snorch continues to play the music and Zimbo screams in terror.]
