Bump in the Night Full Episode Guide

  • Mr. Bumpy and his neat-freak pal Squishy take a trip to Microbia where they sing about the virtues of cleanliness to a bunch of dirty, lowdown germs. / Ooouuu, Mr. Bumpy has a toothache. To make it better, he applies thermite, in large quantities. BOOM!! Out comes the sore tooth, along with every single other dentation in our hero's mouth. What's worse, the teeth (like dentures, or those party gag clacking teeth) turn ferocious and begin to eat everything that moves!! A la "Tremors" Bump and Squish and the whole gang are trapped on high ground, and must use all their smarts to survive. If only Bump had smarts...

  • Mr. Bumpy, rock star extraordinaire ( or so he thinks), sets out on a World Tour around the house, flailing away on his majorly over-amplified electric guitar, while his faithful sidekick and roadie, Squishington, carries his equipment and drives the limo. Too bad for the Cute Dolls; the horrendous din created by our warty green monster is too much for their well-bred, prissy American ways, and they completely crack, turning into blood-thirsty, "Kill the Bumpy" torpedoes of hate. But everything they try to do to Bumpy is misconstrued as evidence of their ever-loving adoration of the "rock" star. So Bumpy just plays louder! A light show that puts Floyd to shame, tanks helicopters and the Rolling Stones, all converge for a finale that literally blows Mr. Bumpy and Squish into outer space! "Whoa! What a rush!" / The tables are turned when strange radiations mutate a harmless slice of bread into a slavering, feeding-frenzied, piece of terror toast! Our heroes, Bumpy and Squishington must scramble for their very lives. Fortunately, in the end, Bumpy knows which side the bread is buttered on and defeats the heinous whole wheat.

  • After a particularly vigorous session of rough-housing, Mr. Bumpy, the Closet Monster and Destructo take five in the Karaoke Cafe to chill out after their long, long day. / When Bumpy puts Destructo's batteries in backwards, the big metal juggernaut of destruction becomes a cross between Alan Alda and Phil Donohue. It's terrible! Bumpy must right his wrong. Or does he?

  • When the plumber shuts off the water for the night, Squish begins to get dryer than the Sahara Desert. Only the medicine show style singing of Mr. Bumpy and his Cute Doll Choir can induce the heavens to issue forth with the precious liquid Squish craves, and saves his dried out hide... / When Bumpy accidentally defrosts the freezer, he revives the Thanksgiving Day Turkey, which makes its escape into the house. In order for his Boy to have eats on the big day, Mr. Bumpy must track the gobbler down and get it back to its wintery abode. But will Bumpy be able to do so without winding up stuffing?

  • Marauding Vikings are on a mission of plunder throughout the house, sacking, pillaging, and generally taking everything that isn't nailed down. Mr. Bumpy sings a song which shows him to be the greediest of them all, so the Vikings make the Bumpster their new leader. Go figure... / A beautiful Princess Doll in a glass jar turns up in Little Sister's room. It looks like she wants to get out, or at least that's what a love-stricken Bumpy thinks. He tries and fails, and ends up knocking himself on the head. When he awakens, he is in fairytale land, and he must pass three tests in order to win the hand of the "princess." Will Bumpy overcome the obstacles, or end up never living happily ever after?

  • The closet Monster decides to take up abode...under the bed! Poor Bumpy is hounded to an inch of his life. If he stays home, he dies if he leaves, he gives up his home. The only other alternative? Fight the Monster. / Bumpy is after a particularly juicy sock. Unfortunately, an ambulatory glove is after the same sock. Now way, no how is Bumpy gonna let some glove get his sock. What follows is a madcap no-holds-barred chase all around the house. After various trashings and collisions, Bumpy finally gets the upper hand, but then finds out what the glove wants the sock for to make a nest for her cute little baby socks! Bumpy, an ol' softy at heart, lets the momma glove have the sock in the end.

  • Literally. When Molly is pulled into an overflowing trashcan by a Giant Hairy Land Squid, she comes out smelling like anything but a rose. In fact, she just plain reeks. But this is all to the liking of an amorous Stink Bug, who plays Romeo to the Mollster's Juliet. What's a Comfort Doll to do? In the end, Molly must learn to comfort herself first and tells the odorous Stink Bug to "bug off." / Bumpy discovers Destructo's weakness, the big robot has a soft spot for Molly Coddle. Using this knowledge in a completely selfish and morally questionable way, Bumpy dresses up like Molly and leads Destructo on a merry chase around the house, trashing the metal-head at every turn. Too bad Molly gets wind of this, and in the end, much to Destructo's heart's desire, he and Molly team up to trash Mr. Bumpy. "Hey!! Wait! I was just funnin'!".

  • The tables are turned when strange radiations mutate a harmless slice of bread into a slavering, feeding-frenzied, piece of terror toast! Our heroes, Bumpy and Squishington must scramble for their very lives. Fortunately, in the end, Bumpy knows which side the bread is buttered on and defeats the heinous whole wheat. / Mr. Bump is turned into a baby and sentenced to time in the Big Crib. In a film noire parody of every prison movie ever made, bumpy must survive in the brutal babies' world of high chairs, patty-cake and dirty diapers. Along the way, he must take on the head honcho: Big Mike, the Pacifier King. But even if he survives that, will he live through The Burping??

  • Molly Coddle is a comfort doll extraordinaire. Yup, there isn't anything she can't comfort, or so she feels. "After all," she says, "it's my job." Unfortunately, Molly takes on more than she can chew (or comfort), when she tries to succor the impossible: the Closet Monster!! Will Molly survive? Only if Squish and Bump give her a hand. / Bumpy has a problem: he can't stop eating socks. He's a sockaholic!! He enlists the aid of his pal Squishington to break him of this terrible habit. But to no avail. When Squish finally puts his own life on the line in order to save Bumpy, and end is in sight - but whose end?

  • Bumpy hates babies, no ifs ands or baby butts. Babies and Bump just don't mix. So what happens when our warty green hero becomes the caretaker of a little, lost, ootsy-wootsy-cutesy baby snail? Maternal bonding, that's what. Bumpy becomes a mom-surrogate extraordinaire! He and the little tyke rollick and play and basically get nauseatingly cute. But when the Momma Snail returns, Bumpy's heart is going to be broken... / Bumpy's gone gum greedy. He's chewed, spewed and swallowed every stick and wad in the house. And he wants more. When he discovers that gum stays in the stomach for over seven years before being digested, he reaches down into himself to get it. But wait, this warps the very fabric of space, and an awesome black hole is created, one that will swallow the Earth if Bumpy doesn't let go of the gum. Can Squishington, braving the "Fantastic Yucky Voyage" inside Bumpy, convince his friend to let go of the gum? Hardly. Looks like the Earth is doomed.

  • Oops! Bumpy has mistakenly eaten the Boy's homework and must brave a whole slew of dangerous story problems that involve out-of-control locomotives, the Closet Monster, and turning himself inside-out, in order to set things right. Will the Bumpster survive the rigors of modern mathematics? / When Bumpy finds an old smoking pop bottle, he's absolutely positive there's a genie inside. There isn't, just a wise-cracking, confident silverfish named Phil, who's willing to take advantage of Bumpy's gullibility to get a nice meal, some new clothes and all the comforts of home. It works, up until the end, when bumpy finds out that if you work for those things you wish for, you can get them...even if you don't have a genie.

  • When Bumpy wants money desperately, he gloms onto the phrase: A Penny For Your Thoughts, and begins thinking furiously. Loa and behold, pennies begin to fall from heaven. Bumpy turns into a regular Al Einstein. He's rich!! Unfortunately, once started, he can't stop thinking: like King Midas, Bumpy's wish turns into a nightmare. Will Bumpy think of a way to stop thinking before he's permanently tattooed with Lincolns? / In which Molly Coddle makes a "new woman: out of herself, piece by piece. First a gorilla arm, then a hairdryer arm, then the leg of Action Man. Suddenly, Molly is no longer the sweet wonderful comfort doll she always was, but a horrible power-crazed monster doll!! Will good triumph over evil? Will kindness win out in the end? I don't know, after all, this is Bump In The Night.

  • In which our main man Bumpy is chased, pummeled and forced to wear a tuxedo by the Cute Dolls in order that his friend Molly Coddle can go to a tea party she has her heart set on. In the end, although Bumpy almost dies of boredom (literally), things come out all right as he and Millie make a shambles of the party and prove that No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

  • Bumpy is after a particularly juicy sock. Unfortunately, an ambulatory glove is after the same sock. No way, no how is Bumpy gonna let some glove get his sock. What follows is a madcap, no-hold-barred chase all around the house. After various thrashings & collisions, Bumpy finally gets the upper hand, but then finds out what the glove wants the sock for: to make a nest for her cute little baby gloves! Bumpy, an ol' softy at heart, lets the momma glove have the sock in the end. / Squishington thinks that getting kissed by a princess will turn him into a prince. With the help of his bosom's buddy Bumpy, he sets out to try and kiss a Cute Doll, with dire results. In the end, after being smooched by Princess Bumpalina (Mr. Bumpy in disguise), Squishinton learns that he had the "heart" of a prince all along.
