EPISODE I "The Gruesome Goblin"
INTRODUCTION: Surf's up, Aleu! The gang from Mystery Incorporated
is headed to the Ocean Land water park for fun in the sun. But when
they arrive, they discover the theme park is about to shut down! A sea
creature is haunting all the attractions - scaring away the customers.
Looks like the first of many mysteries for Ryu, Ken, Li, Ninjara, Billy,
Jimmy and Aleu to experience. Can they get to the bottom of this
The sun was shining as Billy Lee drove the Dragonmobile down the highway, a
Hummer "H2" all terrain vehicle. Everyone in the van was wearing
Man, I thought the sun would never come out again.
Even though I don't like to exaggerate, I have to agree with Kenny.
Those two straight weeks of rain and cloudy overcast skies were the
You said it, Li. Now we can finally use our season passes to
And speaking of Ocean Land, there it is.
He, the blond-haired brother of Jimmy Lee pointed to a large, blue
water tower in the distance. The tower stood amid a tangle of tubes,
slides and other attractions.
Hey, Aleu, we're almost there! Let's get ready.
But they're already wearing bathing suits. What do you think they
have to do to get ready?
I'm afraid to find out myself, vixen.
Billy drove past a huge Ocean Land sign and Ryu Hoshi noticed a
familiar figure displayed on it.
Hey, is that Tippy Torrance's picture? I did not know he was
associated with Ocean Land.
At the same time, Ken and Aleu the female shewolf poked their heads up
front. Each wore mask and snorkel.
Duh, who's Tippy Torrance?
Jimmy, Ninjara and Li looked around to discover the karate master of
San Francisco and shewolf were dressed in wet suits.
I know I'm going to regret I asked this. But why are you two
wearing wet suits?
For the Flume Plume. We don't want to get too wet.
But we are going to a water park. You are supposed to get wet.
I know that, do I look stupid? <Frowns> Besides, this way we can
keep our snacks dry when we go on the attractions. Show them, mascot.
Aleu reached into her wet suit and pulled out a mushed peanut butter,
banana, chocolate chip deli sandwich.
Oh, good grief. <Rolls his eyes>
Who's Troppy Tippance?
Correction, Tippy Torrance. She's a swimmer who won four gold
medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
It looks like she's doing celebrity endorsements for Ocean Land.
That's cool, so while Aleu and I are on the Flume Plume, what are you
Billy, Ryu and I are going to check out the Surfer's Lagoon.
Jimmy and I are interested in the Wave Pool. I want to test one
of my theories about the frequency and amplitude of certain wave formations.
You got that right, kung fu mistress.
As Billy drove into the parking lot, he noticed a trail of cars,
trucks, RV campers, Volkswagen bugs heading out in the opposite direction.
That's strange, it's barely 11 a.m. and look at those people already
Billy found a spot near the front gate and parked the hummer. As
the gang exited, the vixen walked to a woman who was leaving with her
Excuse me, Madame. But my friends just got here. Is
everything all right?
Is the park closed?
I don't know, but it should be. The Whirlpool adventure got so
rough my kids were tossed from their tubes. The waves in the Wave Pool
kept knocking everybody over. This place is not safe!
Then she angrily walked away with her son and daughter hurrying after
her to catch up.
They'll probably shut down those two attractions and keep the rest of
the park open.
As long as the Flume Plume is still running, nothing will keep Aleu and
I from Ocean Land.
Just then a loud scream pierced the air, making everybody jump in
shock, including Aleu who yelped in terror and leaped into her master's
The gang showed their passes and ran through the entry
gates. There they saw a little boy crying his eyes out. He stood
in front of a snowcone stand with a pile of greenish ice in his hand.
His angry mother was beside him yelling.
Where is the park manager? I demand to see the manager, I'm going
to call my lawyer!
A woman in a blue-yellow Ocean Land jumpsuit hurried over. After
a few moments of conversation the boy stopped crying and the mother smiled,
even laughed. As they walked back into the park, the woman in the
Ocean Land uniform began examining the snow cone stand.
Hey, that's Tippy Torrance! I wonder how she stopped that boy
There's only one way to find out. <Approaches the stand> Excuse
me, Ms. Torrance.
Oh, call me Tippy. How can I help you?
My friends and I were wondering how you managed to get that boy to stop
Yes, he seemed pretty upset.
He sure was. He said some weird-looking creature in an Ocean Land
costume served him the snow cone flavor of the month. Then the
creature laughed and ran away. I told him that was how we picked the
winners of the Ocean Land season pass contest.
Wow, I did not know there was a season pass contest.
There is now. I had to come up with something to keep these folks
happy in the park. We've had lots of mysterious occurrences lately and
they're beginning to affect attendance.
Then maybe it's time for you to bail out of Ocean Land. No sense
having your good name tarnished by a bad water park, eh?
TIPPY TORRANCE <Angrily confronts speaker>
Well, if it isn't Bruno Meisterhoffen. Listen, Bruno, I bought
Ocean Land to make it the best family amusement water park in the world.
I'm not going to let anything scare me away.
Suit yourself, <Laughs> get it? Suit yourself, as in swimsuit?
You are a famous swimmer.
This made Ken and Aleu start giggling uncontrollably while Ryu, Li,
Billy, Jimmy and Ninjara stood in stunned silence.
At least hear me out, Tippy. I've purchased that old industrial
park down the street. I'll have the Bruno Meisterhoffen Water Polo
stadium built next summer. With your power and my money, we can host
the International Water Polo Finals.
He fumbled in his pockets for something. He took out a piece of
paper and unfolded it, then held it up for all to see. Tippy looked at
the picture and gasped in shock.
Wait a minute, that's...no, it can't be!
Is that you? <Looks at picture> Whooooohoooo!
Wearing the official water polo uniform of the Meisterhoffen Plumbing
Supply water polo team.
I have never worn a swimsuit like that before. Where did you get
Easy, I took that picture of you from the Ocean Land brochure and
scanned it into my computer. Then it was a matter of a few mouse
clicks to create this, heh-heh-heeh.
Tippy began turning red with anger, how dare her best friend embarrass,
insult her like that?
Excuse me, Bruno. <Tries to hold back her anger> I have work to
With that she turned and walked quickly away to attend to another
family walking toward the EXIT.
Oh, I assure you she'll come around in the end. <He walks away,
whistling a happy tune>
I wonder what kind of creature would dress up like a snow cone
Take a look, samurai.
The dragon brothers, Hoshi, kung fu mistress and vixen all turned as
one and saw Aleu standing behind the stand. She wore a pointed snow
cone hat over her wetsuit.
Ahem, anyone care for snow cones?
Ha-ha, very funny, shewolf. This is no time for joking around.
I'll say. It's time for water fun!
Ken Masters and Aleu ran toward the Flume Plume.
As they passed the Water Playground, a guy on a skateboard zipped out of
nowhere. Ken and Aleu ducked as the skater flew into the air over
their heads, landed and slid to a perfect stop.
Awesome! <Then apologizes> Sorry for that, totally my fault,
dudes. I so wasn't looking where I was going. Are you okay?
Yeah, sort of. <Frowns, eyes narrowed>
Uh, I don't think you're going to be. Look who's coming. <He
The skater turned to see Tippy running over, anger on her face.
Ziggy Bones, how many times must I tell you not to ride your skateboard
in my park?
I can't help it. My board has a mind of its own.
I warned you the next time I caught you fooling around, riding that
stupid toy in here I was going to confiscate it. Hand it over!
Harsh, dudette, very harsh.
What's going on here? Did Kenny and the mascot get into trouble?
No, he did. <Glares at Bones>
I plead guilty, your honor. <Raises hand>
Very funny...Ziggy thinks Ocean Land is his skateboard park, even
though he knows it's dangerous.
That's because there are all these people playing in water. Take
away the water and this place would make a supreme-o skateboarder's
paradise. Just look around, Tippy. The Flume Plume, Whirlpool,
even the Lazy River is like the half-pike. Take it from the Zigster,
this place could become the center of the skateboard-inline rollerblade
Before Tippy could answer, Billy noticed something on the ground next
to the skateboard.
I wonder what this is?
That's my, um, skateboard license. I'll take that.
But before he could get it, Tippy snatched it from Billy. She
unfolded the paper, rolled her eyes.
It's just something I was messing around with on the computer.
Oh, no...it's another picture of you, Tippy.
Only in this one I'm wearing rollerblades instead of a water polo
Gee, and I figured the first photo was better than this one.
It's just an idea, not an insult.
I know you mean well, Ziggy. <Smiles> But I'm a swimmer, not a
skateboarder. You can pick up your toy at the security office later.
The Zigster is saddened to hear that. Maybe you'll change your
mind one day. When you do, I'll be ready. <Trudged away>
Golly, Torrance. It seems everyone wants you to do something for
I know, Ninjara. Ever since I won those medals at the Sydney
Games, people only see me as a way to make a fortune. They don't
realize I'm not into that sort of thing.
Then her hand-held radio squawked, telling her she was needed
Oops, gotta run. Catch you later! <Then she ran away>
The Flume Plume? That's where Aleu and I wish to go.
I hope everything's okay over there.
Only one way to find out. Let's go.
