Recap: The Aquabats Super Show S 1 E 10 Floating Eye Of Death
"WAAAAAAAAAH! IT'S REAL!!! I KNEW IT!!!"

Jimmy the Robot: Once upon a time, there was a giant floating eyeball that flew across the land...
Crash McLarson: I like this story!
Jimmy: ...in search of human souls to devour!
Crash: I don't like this story!

Somewhere, at a rock concert...

The 'Bats play a particularly energetic show, leaving them tired and in need of sleep, so they stop the Battletram by a Truck Stop. On Crash's request Jimmy reads them toe story book 'The Floating Eye Of Death,' which instructs them to summon the creature by saying it's name backwards three times. Eaglebones and Crash (accidentally in his case) say it aloud, before Ricky says it a third time as a joke before going to sleep.

Having no need for sleep, Jimmy returns to his lab to recharge, feeling alienated from his friends because of his robotic nature.

Crash wakes up and decides to buy some snacks at the Truck Stop. After playing an arcade game/watching a cartoon, he leaves to discover the Floating Eye of Death in the flesh, converting a trucker into a zombie slave.

Screaming for help, the Commander arrives (to tell the neighbors to keep it down) just to be himself converted. Ricky however manages to keep the zombies distracted by running circles around them, while Crash and Eaglebones run inside to protect the cashier girl. They are promptly distracted by the hats they are selling, going so far as to start singing about them. This unfortunately leads to Ricky being zombified.

Jimmy finishes recharging to find the Battletram empty, and fears he's been abandoned/

Crash and Eaglebones figure that Jimmy could give the monster Laser Eye Surgery, and formulate a plan...which consists of Eaglebones throwing snackfood at the zombies while Crash runs over and knocks on the Battletram door shouting for Jimmy. While pleased that his friends have not abandoned him, Jimmy is just in time to see the Eye zombify Crash and Eaglebones. Furious, Jimmy marches into the truck stop and with the cashier girl's help, constructs a laser cannon and attaches it to his arm.

With his new weapon, Jimmy stuns the zombies and easily dispatches the eye, but unfortunately finds that this has not returned his friends to normal. And so, he puts them to bed and begins feeding them the goopy remains of the Eye, giving them their souls bite by bite. Happy to be surrounded by his friends, Jimmy offers to read them a new story; the Flaming Rhino of Darkness.


Tropes

  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs:
    Crash McLarson: I wanna hear a story about bears...and licorice...and bears with licorice arms!
  • Call Back: The Floating Eye Of Death is an antagonist from their album of the same name. The instrumental track that plays when the band is in danger ("Good Night") is from that same album.
  • Forgot I Could Fly: Crash is terrified of the eye, meaning he is getting emotional, and yet he doesn't grow to giant size. While useful, a giant monster fight probably didn't fit the creepy tone of the episode.
  • Here We Go Again:
  • Nice Hat: The trucker caps Jimmy finds in the gas station.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The Aquabats almost cause a Zombie Apocalypse by summoning the Floating Eye of Death.
  • No Ontological Inertia: Discussed. Jimmy The Robot directly states that he expected this to apply to the Floating Eye's soul devouring and zombification, upon discovering that it didn't.
  • Rule of Three: To summon the Floating Eye of Death, his name has to be said backwards three times.
  • Squick: To get their souls back, Jimmy spoon feeds his friends the Eye's remains, figuring You're soul has to be in here somewhere.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: The Floating Eye's main objective, stealing their souls with his gaze.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: Essentially what the Eye will cause.
