"Floating Eye of Death!" is the 10th episode of The Aquabats! Super Show! from Season 1.


When a bedtime story reading goes wrong, The Aquabats accidentally summon The Floating Eye of Death, a monster bent on wiping out all of humanity! The odds get harder as each member of the team gets turned into a zombie. Who will be the one to save the day?


After a particularly intense stage show, The MC Bat Commander is driving The BattleTram towards their next destination. Jimmy compliments him on the show and asks if he's not too tired to drive. After dozing and almost causing an accident, MCBC agrees to pull over so they can all rest. They park at a gas station and Jimmy takes it upon himself to read the other Aquabats a bedtime story called "The Floating Eye of Death". According to the story, a giant floating eyeball once flew across the land in search of human souls to devour. The soul-less humans then became soldiers for the floating eye. A wizard finally banished the eye to another dimension and it may be summoned back by reciting its name three times backwards. Before Jimmy can demonstrate this incantation, Crash interrupts to say how tired he is. Jimmy reluctantly leaves them to spend the night in his recharge station. EagleBones tries out the incantation once, and Crash shushes him. Ricky teases Crash over his fears and tricks him into saying the incantation again. Soon, they decide to go to sleep and Ricky jokingly says the incantation followed by "whatever" before going to sleep.

Scared and unable to sleep, Crash goes into the gas station convenience store in search of snacks. He finds a cartoon inside an old-school arcade game. When the cartoon ends, Crash complains that the game is over. Suddenly, The Floating Eye's tentacle snakes into the store and grabs a shopping trucker outside. Crash follows and sees that The Floating Eye of Death was actually real. The eye steals the trucker's soul and turns him into a green zombie. Crash runs to The BattleTram and circles it, trying to get the other Aquabats' attention. MCBC steps outside, only to be grabbed by the eye and turned into a green zombie. Crash finds the door left open and once inside, reveals the situation to EagleBones and Ricky, who agree to help save Tina, the convenience store employee. Ricky runs around the green zombies, distracting them while the other two save Tina just in time. Once safely back inside the convenience store, Crash, Tina, and EagleBones become distracted by all the trucker caps available for purchase. They sing a song called Feel My Steel, not noticing that they have left Ricky outside. By the time they realize their error it's too late; Ricky has been turned into a green zombie.

Inside The BattleTram, Jimmy is finally recharged and tries to locate the others. Meanwhile, Crash, Tina and EagleBones come up with the idea to fix the eye by shooting it with a laser. They realize they have to get Jimmy to help. This time, EagleBones uses Twinkies to distract the zombies outside while Crash runs for the BattleTram with his eyes closed. Unfortunately, EagleBones runs out of Twinkies and accidentally gets turned into a green zombie. Crash runs face first into The BattleTram, knocking him unconscious. The commotion is enough to alert Jimmy to the facts and he fearlessly strides into the store. He and Tina reprise Feel My Steel while building a giant laser. Using the laser, Jimmy is able to stun the zombies and kill The Floating Eye of Death.

Three weeks later, we see all the other Aquabats in their bunks with Jimmy caring for them. He feeds the Floating Eye of Death Goop made from the eye that took their souls, in order to get the souls all back into them. The episode ends with Jimmy offering to read another story called "The Flaming Rhino of Darkness", causing Ricky to fall out of the bunk.



It's A Cartoon![]

The other Aquabats are still inside Jimmy the Robot trying to restart his CPU. In between punching parasites, MCBC finally succeeds by pulling and replacing a plug near the CPU. Jimmy's antivirus software activates and tiny sled-shaped ships are launched against the parasites. The Aquabats shuttle being a target as well, they frantically try to find a quick exit. Outside The BattleTram, a space worm is causing trouble. Its antics (and presumably the CPU reboot) wake Jimmy, who jumps into the driver's seat, dodging space/time rifts and the worm that is creating them. MCBC (still microscopic) asks Jimmy to guide them out of his head. Jimmy is surprised to hear voices inside his head, but listens and realizes his friends have saved him. He can only guide them so far while dodging wormholes, and they take a wrong turn, ending up in Jimmy's heart. They are unable to hide from the defense sleds, which fire upon them, triggering the countdown to re-expand. Can they escape in time or will they break Jimmy's heart for reals? Tune in next week, gee!

Lil' Bat cartoon[]

Lil' Bat is totally rad (and safe!) with his new skateboard, helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads. He coasts toward a scary looking ramp, determinedly. Is the ramp frightening, or is it just perspective? It doesn't matter to Lil' Bat who throws his arms up victoriously after barely touching the ramp!


Sung by a teenager carting around a Stooped Fone. The lyrics say it all.

Commercial Transcription/Lyrics:

Don't be one of the in-crowd with their smart phones. Show 'em you're different with a Stooped Fone!

It's big, it's ugly
It hardly even works
Don't get a smart phone
you ain't a nerd!
Buy a Stooped Fone
It don't play games
There ain't no apps
It weighs 37 pounds
You gotta wear it like a backpack
Stooped Fone
It's got no buttons
Just a rotary dial
So when you're making your call
It's gonna take you a while
It's not just a phone
It's a lifestyle
Buy a Stooped Fone
By Gloopy
It's not a phone, it's a lifestyle. By Gloopy.


Feel My Steel![]

Performed by Crash, EagleBones, and Tina. Later, a more rock driven version is sung by Jimmy and Tina.


Cultural References[]

  • The Lil' Bat print pajamas seen in the episode became so popular among fans that they were made into actual pajamas by Toddland and were sold at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 as a con-exclusive item. Due to popular demand, the leftover pajamas were later sold on the Toddland website so that fans unable to attend the convention could still purchase a pair.

  • The wizard from the storybook has headgear and an aqua blue robe that makes him look suspiciously like Jimmy.
