After learning how difficult growing their "Smell-of-Death/Vedus Odor Morcus" vine for school is, Randy and Howard decide to use all the water/food for the plant at once. A week later, the plant is dead, and the two are panicking. Howard then comes up with the idea to use the Nomicon in order to bring the plant back to life to avoid getting grounded due to their soon to be bad grade. The two then debate why they have different costumes for the Whoopee World Frightacular (Randy being the lower half of a cow, and Howard as Viceroy). After skimming the instructions, Randy attempts and fails to restore the plant.
During the time the teacher is grading the plants, Mrs. Driscoll's skeleton comes to life and kidnaps Howard saying "Doomsday is coming". The Ninja then fights Jerry Driscoll. He throws Ninja Rings, but they are useless as they went into Jerry's ribs. Jerry counter attacks by throwing his ribs and pumpkins.
Randy slips on pumpkin goop, and falls down the stairs. Jerry takes this opportunity to escape.The Ninja then returns to the classroom, and asks what Jerry would want with Howard. Mrs. Driscoll then explains how her husband created a Doomsday Device, and was then betrayed by Viceroy, which got him (Jerry) arrested.
In his lair, Jerry starts to finish his Doomsday Device, and discovers he kidnapped the wrong person. Meanwhile, Viceroy is visited by the Ninja. Viceroy then agrees to help stop Jerry upon learning he's alive. He then explains that Jerry only built the device to get Valedictorian in his college class at M.S.U. (Mad Scientist University). The two and Mrs. Driscoll then discover Jerry's base under Mount Chuck's Gift Shop.
At Jerry's base, the Ninja fights Jerry, while Viceroy tries to deactivate the now-active Doomsday Device. However, they are both unsuccessful at first, but then Mrs. Driscoll arrives. The Ninja kicks off Jerry's head, and Jerry and his wife discuss the future results of the device's destruction (like them being apart). Jerry then deactivates the device, and starts thinking of more destructive devices to create. Deciding he's too dangerous to be kept alive, the Ninja reverses the resurrection power used on Jerry. Once out of the building, Howard asks Mrs. Driscoll to bring up their science grade, she then grudgingly gives them a C.
At the school, Randy and Howard see Mr. and Mrs. Driscoll dancing in the Science Lab and decided to go to the Frightacular. Howard then points out how strange it was that the resurrection power only affected Jerry. Unknown to the two, more stuff comes alive.
