All of the boys have just graduated from school where they learned exterminating, except for Sach who flunked out. They set up their new business in a corner of Louie's Sweet Shop and quickly get a job to remove ghosts from an old abandoned mansion. Upon arrival they discover weird events taking place, such as lights turning on when a match is lit, and a disappearing organ. Soon they discover that these events are not the actions of ghosts, but of a mad scientist who is conducting illegal experiments in the basement.

Upon encountering the scientist, Sach quickly becomes part of the experiment. The scientist wants to perform a brain transplant operation, which will transfer part of his brain to a gorilla. A fight ensues and, after the cops arrive and apprehend the criminals, the boys find themselves at the police station, telling the story of what happened. Louie then calls them and tells Slip that the mouse in his store "had puppies". The boys quickly leave the police station to go to their next job.
