The Squishy Predicament of Stanley Peet's Stinky Pits is the sixth episode of The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants.
Desperate to get their dream lunch, George and Harold enlist the help of Stanley Peet to help win the avocadgrow contest (a scam set up by Mr. Krupp to get a large supply of guacamole) and borrowing Melvin's new machine turns out to be a problem when they turn it up to the "you so crazy" setting and it combines their pit and newly-returned science teacher Mr. Fyde to make a giant avocado monster named Avocad-woe, who attacks anything that makes any sort of loud sound.
The episode starts off with the narrator introducing the viewers to George and Harold, not to mention their fondness for pranks. Sometimes, those pranks are harmless. But sometimes, they "get the world attacked by giant cranky produce." But before the narrator can tell us that story, he needs to tell us this story.... (Theme)
The two boys are having lunch, but do not want to eat any of the gross cafeteria food. That's when they notice a poster for the Avocad-grow contest, where the winner gets an all you can eat lunch of whatever they want.
Meanwhile, we are re-introduced to a familiar face at the Piqua Home For The Reality Challenged: science teacher Mr. Morty Fyde. He spent six months at the P.H.F.T.R.C because teaching at Jerome Horwitz is stressful for him. But now he is doing a lot better and is ready to teach science again... as long as you keep the noise down.
At school, Mr. Fyde explains that the student who's pit grows the most; wins the lunch jackpot. Mr. Krupp reminds the children that it is Mr. Fyde's first day back from the P.H.F.T.R.C, and as a result his nerves are raw. So, Mr. Krupp yells at them that they should "KEEP THE NOISE DOWN!" As Mr. Krupp yells, Mr. Fyde lands on the floor in fear. As he gets back up, Mr. Fyde reminds Mr. Krupp not to make noise. Mr. Krupp just yells to the kids: "You heard him, NO NOISE!" while Mr. Fyde covers his ears and says "Please don't." The narrator then mentions that: "Unfortunately for Mr. Fyde, an elementary school is practically built on noise."
In the classroom, Mr. Fyde pretty much flips out on being too loud. Mr. Krupp then makes the comment: "Whoa, you are a ticking time bomb." He then tells the students to get their avocado pits and grow some trees. George even makes a comment on how Krupp "has a crush on guacamole." Which then leads to the kids going avocado shopping after school at Avocad-epot, the world's only avocado shop. By this point, George and Harold are pretty much determined to win the lunch jackpot because they found the perfect pit. But their sweaty classmate Stanley Peet, wasn't picky about his pits. George and Harold's nemesis, Melvin Sneedly wasn't engaged in the contest because he was focused on getting accepted into his dream school: Eliteanati Academy. But when one of the requirements is to win first place in an avocado growing contest, he decides to do it.
Back at the tree house, the boys' pit still isn't growing. So, they decided to create a comic book just so that they can read to it, but it doesn't work. Meanwhile in class, Mr. Fyde slips on a pair of earmuffs and eye blinders, only for him to trip over a stool and "fall unconscious". The boys come up to Melvin, who comments that their pit is inferior just like them. Harold tells him his pit isn't even growing, only for Melvin to respond with "Oh, it will! It will!", sneering in his face. Mr. Krupp storms in, tearing off Mr. Fyde's earmuffs and screaming "WHERE'S MY GUACAMOLE?", causing the latter to leap up in shock. He then asks how the contest is going, only to start gushing at the very thought of guacamole. Krupp then rips of Mr. Fyde's eye blinder, yelling again and causing him to begin panicking, and eventually collapse.
George and Harold then notice a horrid smell coming from where Stanley's at, which turns out to be his armpit guacamole. They then ask if they can borrow it and sneak it into Mr. Krupp's office, only to be caught by his new nannie cam. He however, can't resist stuffing his face with the putrid guacamole, and ends up hurling behind his desk. Ms. Anthrope opens the door, asking Krupp if he called her, in which he shouts at her that he was puking. After she leaves, he slips on his own stomach contents, only to get up and eliminate the boys from the Avocad-grow competition, much to their dismay. They offer to grow him an avocado tree, which he calls ridiculous and preposterous, but agrees anyway as long as they have it by next week.
The two begin wondering how they're going to grow the tree by Friday, but then Stanley walks up and reveals his full-grown pits. George asks how he managed to get them to grow so fast, and the narrator explains that the Peet family sweats enough to grow entire plants. Stanley offers them some orange juice, "fresh from the pit". When the two get home, they shove the pit under each other's armpits, drenching it in sweat and causing it to grow faster, but not fast enough to get the tree to grow by Friday. Meanwhile, Melvin invents a machine to help him win the Avocado-grow competition he calls "the Piticle Accelerator 2000, only for karaoke kitty come up to him and ask him to sing.
The next day, Mr. Fyde, unable to tolerate anymore noise, comes with a Sensory Deprivation tank to seal himself in. He tells the kids to behave since he won't be able to see or hear a thing. Stanley compliments their pit, but Harold tells him that they need a tree. George points out that their pit is still bigger than Melvin's, only for him to take out his invention and zap his pit, causing it to grow into a tree. One of the tree's branches however, breaks the Sensory deprivation tank and Mr. Fyde start spluttering and flopping around. Another grabs Melvin, causing him to drop the Piticle accelerator and Harold catches it. The boys decide to use it for their own pit and Harold cranks it up to You So Crazy. He aims for the pit, but Mr. Fyde gets in the way at the last second, causing him to be hit by the beam instead and be fused with the pit, transforming into Avocadwoe, a gigantic, noise-hating avocado pit.
Melvin snaps at the two for turning it up so high but gets kicked away by the monster while yelling at him, sending him flying all the way to Avocad-epot. He ends up landing in a heap of avocados, with the raccoon in the bargain bin from earlier. Mr. Krupp barges in on them and sees Avocadwoe, who sweeps him aside and starts to grow bigger and stomps his way out of the school. George and Harold then turn Krupp into Captain Underpants, who asks what's up and to start from the beginning. George says that may take some time but Captain Underpants tells him that his schedule's wide open. Meanwhile, Avocadwoe is going on a rampage across the city, destroying anything and everything that makes sound with Captain Underpants saving everything as fast as he can. Avocadwoe angrily bumps him with his body, and Captain Underpants narrowly avoids being skewered by the monster's needle-like legs. He flies away, only to crash into steel post which falls on him. Avocadwoe approaches, and Captain Underpants grabs and twirls a steel beam.
The two fight in Paint-o-rama, and it comes back to Captain Underpants fighting Avocadwoe with the same beam. He eventually succeeds in slicing the monster's arms off, only for him to regrow them in almost an instant, jerking away the steel beam. Captain Underpants tries to fight him again, but is easily thrown aside. Avocadwoe begins kicking cars around, and George gets the idea to plug up the former's ears. Captain Underpants forms two massive balls of underwear and plugs the monster's ears with them. They don't work however, and Avocadwoe, now furious, shrieks that if they won't be quiet, he'll make them, as well as the whole world, quiet, forever. He then sprouts multiple toothpicks around his body, spinning and cutting up everything in his path, sending a car flying and recreating the scene in which the narrator says that the viewers may remember this from the beginning of the episode. Captain Underpants rescues the boys, only for Avocadwoe to fire a swarm of toothpicks at the trio. Captain Underpants once again saves the two, but toothpicks pierce his butt as he flies.
They take sanctuary in the woods behind the school. George gets the idea to put Avocadwoe in a quiet place, where he won't have to destroy anything that makes noise. Captain Underpants comes up with a few places, like a bowling alley, an airport, and a peaceful forest. George decides that the last one is perfect and comes up with a plan. The three sneak through the ruins of the city, only for the monster to show up and begin swatting at the boys. Luckily, Captain Underpants protects them from him, and they all begin playing random musical instruments, much to Avocadwoe's infuriation. They lure him to the forest where Captain Underpants continues to play loud and annoying music, causing the enraged monster to charge at him and fall into a previously dug hole. Captain Underpants covers the pit with dirt, and returns with Stanley (as well as the raccoon from earlier ) who's sweat is now flowing from his pits like waterfalls, to water it. A tree with a face resembling Mr. Fyde rapidly grows and begins shouting "QUIET!", only to realize it is quiet.
A drop of Stanley's sweat lands on Captain Underpants' head, turning him back into Krupp. He notices the tree starts effervescing again. The duo wins the contest, and Mr. Fyde thanks the boys for finally allowing him to be in permanent silence as everything is a lot quieter now that he's a tree and not a teacher. George tells him that it was their pleasure and how thanks to his avocados, it's a win-win win situation.(It's a win for Mr.Fyde because he gets total silence, a win for Harold and George because since they won the contest, they get the AYCE lunch of whatever they want & a win for Mr.Krupp because he gets all the guacamole he wants.) Harold expresses his excitement to finally eat all the food he ever wanted and not have it fight back. In the meantime, Mr. Krupp crams guacamole into his mouth.
- Moral: Don't rush into things and take your time.
- As of this episode, Mr. Fyde is now an avocado tree
