[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.
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 s…
Oblina: 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: Not a chance. The little pipsqueak Ickis would’ve left five minutes.
Ickis: Wanna bet?
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?
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.
Ickis: LEAVE ME ALONE! YOU FUZZY EARED FREAK!!
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?
Gromble: Of course not, Ickis. We just think. Could you wait in the hall for a moment?
Ickis: Well, I'm not crazy!
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?
[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.]
[Ickis goes back to the academy]
Zimbo: Boo, I wuv you, Ickis. Don't you want a hug? 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… (Mischievious 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 fellas...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.]
