Eddie and his pals have been setting up a huge Halloween party for the local Reef People to attend. Eddie's home, a cave not far from the mainland of California, is a place where many reef fish are welcome to visit him in the Glee Room. This is especially true for the local kids in the area and Halloween night is no exception.
Ed dressed up as Bela Lugosi's Dracula and was serving the kids something to sink their teeth into. While Ed loves candy and sweets, he gives out fruits that you can dip into a different sort of sweetness: peaches and cream, peanut butter banana slices, and chocolate strawberries. He asks that you take the fruit without the dips (despite the risk of getting egged or TP'd)
Jen is a witch, but most kids aren't sure if she's really in costume. She gives the kids BUG treats; bug filled lollipops, gummy worms, and chocolate covered ants (Ed keeps sneaking the gummy worms). Shark is a big time movie director, and he gives the kids chilled (Jell-O) monkey brains, chocolate dino eggs, and Reese's Pieces (Ed keeps sneaking the monkey brains too). Ed and Jen give Shark a hard time because his treats aren't that creative.
Shark: "They are TOO creative. You're just out of the loop."
Jen: "Are these Dino Eggs just Easter eggs?"
Shark just looks guilty
So while Ed and the Reef Folk have a gay ol' time near the surface, the fish of the deep are stirring and fuming. Gulper gathers a small group of fellow men and tells them about the gigantic amount of candy the reef people have. The hard working people of the deep deserve some of their candy as well, and if the Reefers won't give them treats, then the Spooks will give them tricks.
Slowly, the creatures crawl up from the depths to sneak up on the kids and houses of the reef. A few kids who were heading home after visiting Eddie's house are cut off by a group of Spooks. The Spooks make scary faces at them and the kids run away. They run until they find the local bullies and beg the bullies to take out the scary fish. The bullies look at the kids and offer their assistance for candy but are interrupted by Spooks sneaking up behind them. They all run away to the one person they think can be scarier.
Back at Eddie's house, Shark is running out of monkey brains and starts giving kids more "East...Easter Dino Eggs"
Kids: "Easter Dino Eggs?"
Shark: "Yeah from the Raptor Jesus"
The kids rush into Ed's house, scared silly, begging for Jen to scare off the Spooks. The three grown ups look outside and see a nice crowd of deep sea fish gathering around Ed's place. Ed asks why the kids didn't run home first seeing how that would be the safest thing to do. Ed soon sees that the Spooks are just stalking outside people's houses and the police won't do anything because they're creeped out as well. Jen gets miffed at the kids thinking that she's scarier then the Spooks but she agrees to go out and give the Spooks a run for their money. Jen gets Shark to rush out of the cave with her and start screaming and yelling at the fish to go away. While a few run off, others stick around, not sure what Jen and Shark are trying to do ("Hay wow that's kinda cool." "I didn't know someone's face could do that").
Shark and Jen return feeling accomplished and are willing to assist to walk the kids safely home, until they feel a growing rumble. They look outside the windows to see a large group of Deep Sea Fish coming over the horizon. Jen and Shark run back outside, trying to scare off the fish again but fail when the fish just scream at them. Jen and Shark run away with Gulper laughing at them. He calls to the reef people to surrender all the treats in their house, or they're in for a terrible trick.
Inside everyone assumes the worst. Jen starts to file out her two week notice and bullies cry out for their mothers. With a grand plan and strong will, Eddie walks out of his house to face Gulper and the mob. Ed announces to Gulper that his mob of Spooks are not scary at all and he will take what ever tricks the Spooks can dish out if it means they leave the reef alone. Gulper asks if he's sure, and that once he's failed, they can have anything in his house (hinting at a few treasures that lurk deep in Ed's abode). Ed agrees and dares Gulper's mob to do their worst. And thus the DeepSea Haunts begin!
The Song is Black Mission Goggles by Man-Man. While the lyrics do not fit the theme the characters and what they're doing (the song does talk about cocaine use, not a kid friendly song) the intense sound and crazy beat should stir your imagination.
(NOTE: Please be be courteous with this mp3, as it is hosted by a friend with sensitive bandwidth and asks that if the traffic gets too crazy that I should take it down. If you like the song listen to it once or ask me to e-mail it to you~Thank you)
The monsters march up and around Ed. They pull on him and toss him around like a bean bag. These monsters play music solos with their guts, small fish grow up into large beasts, some create large web like tentacles. Fish start to chew on the side of the TV screen while others dance and giggle to their haunting song. The spookier they are the crazier they are. The madness doesn't stop, and Ed keeps his sanity. Gulper sees that the Eel is not breaking as easily as he thought, so he steps in during the confusion and smacks Eddie out of the mob deep into the caverns of the deep. The mob ask Gulper if it was necessary to be so rough with him but carry on and laugh thinking that it meant they won. They continue to dance without knowing their pray is no longer in the heap.
Ed lands deep below in the darkness of the deep. Shaken up from being punched out by Gulper, Ed sits and calls a defeat. From the darkness he sees small glowing lights come towards him. He cringes up thinking it's more of the giant fish, but to his surprise, it's a group of small fish dressed in cute costumes. They look at Ed in mournful confusion, as if wondering if he can help them. Ed smiles and gets an idea.
The people back in Ed's home start to worry. Jen seriously starts to consider surrender and tries to offer one of the kids as a sacrifice. The ghouls smash hard at Ed's doors, trying to force their way into his house. Several spooks at this point start to wonder if they had gone too far, and ask Gulper why they still need to hunt for candy. Gulper ignores their comments and pushes onward.
All of a sudden, a large roar calls out from behind the mob. Everyone stops and looks at the new large approaching mob from the deep. The Spooks start to get scared and quite down. Gulper gets terrified as he sees Ed leading the group. Ed announces to the new group, "Here they are, they've been up here this whole time."
The Mob in a feminine sounding roar calls out "WHAT!??"
Gulper looks around at his mob and asks," What is this?"
The mob replies, "It's our Wives..."
Ladies come up form the larger mob, scolding and beating their husbands, telling them it was wrong to be stealing candy from other people. Why would they need to steal candy when they should be tricker treating with their kids like normal parents? The men point to were Gulper was standing, saying it was his idea to take the candy from the rich reef folk. Gulper however, manages to sneak away back to his mansion in the deep.
The wives start to get more violent but Ed steps up and tells them that it was ok. Halloween is about spooks and it was his idea to bring them up to give the reef people a nice scare. The husbands look at their wives nodding their heads, but the ladies don't seem convinced. Ed then invites the fish into his house to share in his treats, just so long as they give back the candy they stole.
So Ed invites all the deep sea children in his home to have a killer party with the other fish. In the end the reef kids and deep sea kids got along. Ed looks to Jen and Shark to tell them how everything turned out so well that this party can last all night long but the two of them are dead asleep.
