The episode starts out by introducing the Watterson family driving in the desert. Here, Gumball is shown telling a ghost story about an animal with the body of a cooger, the wings of a bat and the head of a duck causing his siblings and Richard to get scared. Nicole tells the kids to save the ghost stories for their camping trip but they keep telling stories anyway. After Anais and Richard tell their stories, Nicole tells the kids a real ghost story about a family like them going camping. In the story, the family's car breaks down and then a scary old toothless man who lives in an abandoned gas station takes them to his home and eats them.
