  • Mr. Stubborn, Mr. Quiet and Mr. Grumpy's Plot: Mr. Quiet, Mr. Stubborn and Mr. Grumpy go on a boat trip, in a swamp where a swamp creature dwells, Mr. Stubborn thinks it's a frog or a turtle or a duck rather than a swamp creature until it emerges from the water and brings Mr. Stubborn underwater with it and presumably eats him offscreen then Mr. Quiet says 'it was real nice knowing you, Mr. Stubborn". Mr. Stubborn is then seen on the stomach of the swamp creature still objecting its existence.


The characters turn off the light in the bathroom.

  • Mr. Strong admires himself in front of the mirror, and turns off the light, but makes a hole in the wall due to his strength.
  • Mr. Small washes his hands and tries to turn the light off, so he jumps to get the switch, but he only got himself swinging up and down.
  • Mr. Scatterbrain turns the light off, but see the Dillydale Swamp Creature wearing his hat on the reflection.
