FADE IN: EXT. - A DARK ALLEY - NIGHT CAMERA PANS around the darkened alleyway. Playful, kid-type NEON SIGNS blink on and off, casting eerie shadows. TIMMY, WANDA and COSMO dramatically step out of the darkness. Each wears a glowing “TRON-LIKE” SUIT and HELMET and carries a phosphorescent ENERGY STAFF. (The Godparents have stars on the end of theirs). TIMMY It’s quiet. Too quiet. Several SHADOWY FIGURES dash across the alley. TIMMY What was that? The shadowy figures flip over their heads and land all around them! At first, it looks as though they might be wielding knives. But, they throw their “knives” which turn out to be deadly RAZOR CARROTS. Cosmo and Wanda flip out of the way with ninja-like skills as the carrots slice into the brick walls of the alley! Timmy stands alone. Several carrots fly towards him! WANDA Timmy! Look out! That’s double the daily recommended supply of Beta Carotin! COSMO It’s neither good, nor good for you! TIMMY Nooo!!! SLO-MO-ACTION Timmy dodges several carrots that move through the air, leaving “ripples” in their wake, ala the Matrix. ON COSMO The carrots that Timmy dodges, shoot right through Cosmo, leaving his body riddled with holes. COSMO I’m hit! A lot! Cosmo dematerializes. WANDA

Look out! They’re coming closer! They’re... They’re... A CROWD of exceptionally cute NINJA BUNNIES emerges from the shadows. TIMMY Ninja bunnies? (BEAT) Hold it! Stop! Stop! Stop! Helmets off! Wanda and Timmy pull off their helmets. The dark alley morphs into TIMMY’S BEDROOM, where Cosmo waits with holes still in his body. COSMO Look at me! I’m cheese! ANGLE ON TIMMY He’s kinda pissed. WANDA Something wrong, Timmy? TIMMY Fuzzy bunnies? What am I, four? Suddenly, VICKY kicks the door open. Cosmo and Wanda poof away. Timmy freaks at the sight of her. VICKY Hey! I heard happy! What’s going on in here? TIMMY Nothing! Just... uh... playing video games. VICKY Well keep it down! You know when I’m watching you, I’m watching something on TV! Vicky EXITS. When she shuts the door, we see that the Godparents were behind the door in their fishbowl, but regular size. They’re crammed in there. WANDA That was close! COSMO No, this is close. WANDA I’m chafing! TIMMY

Look, I’m gonna go to the bathroom. While I’m gone, please fix this game! No bunnies! No ponies! Something that’ll scare the pants off me! COSMO But, you’ll be in the can. You’ll already have your pants... WANDA (interrupting) Why don’t you wish for exactly what you want? We’ll do our best! TIMMY Chester and AJ will be here any minute and I really wanna impress them. I wish for a video game that’s challenging. A game that you can’t wish yourself out of! Timmy EXITS. Cosmo and Wanda POOF out of the Fishbowl. COSMO Hey, that wish is just vague enough to work! WANDA Yeah! But we’re gonna need a lot of power to make it work! Cosmo and Wanda dramatically pull POWER CORDS out of their wands and plug them into the wall. COSMO One tough game, comin’ up! They wave their wands together and... KA-BLAM!!! CUT TO: MONTAGE CUT TO: EXT. - THE CITY - SAME TIME All the lights in all the buildings dim. CUT TO: INT. - A DOCTOR’S AUDITORIUM - SAME TIME STUDENT DOCTORS sit watching an OLDER DOCTOR instruct them on a procedure. A PATIENT lies on the gurney.

OLDER DOCTOR Observe, students, as I remove a needless “second kidney”. He reaches in. The lights go off for a second. When they come back on, the older Doctor is holding a cartoony beating heart. STUDENT DOCTOR #1 I’m new here... uh... but isn’t that a very needed “only heart”? CUT TO: INT. - A ROMANTIC CANDLE LIT DINNER - SAME TIME TWO LOVERS stare deeply into each other’s eyes. MAN In this light, you’ve never seemed more beautiful. WOMAN Oh, Chet! The lights dim even more. MAN Eugh! In this light, you look like my mom! The man exits as the woman buries head in her hands, sobbing. CUT TO: EXT. - THE TURNER HOUSE - EARLY EVENING - THAT MOMENT CHESTER AND AJ WALK INTO FRAME AND see Timmy’s house just as the windows flash white from the magic blast. CHESTER Whoa! AJ What was that? Chester and AJ watch as the lights in the house return to normal. AJ The power surged. CHESTER Every light in the city dimmed... CHESTER AND AJ

Timmy’s got a new video game! They quickly run in the house. CUT TO: INT. - TIMMY’S ROOM - A MOMENT LATER The God parents float in their fishbowl. WANDA Hope Timmy likes his new game. Chester and AJ enter Timmy’s room. CHESTER Hey, where’s the dude? AJ looks at his watch. AJ It’s 6:13. Timmy always goes to the bathroom at 6:13. CHESTER That’s weird. He always struck me as more of a 7:43 tinkler... AJ notices the helmets resting on top of Timmy’s TV. AJ (interrupting) Cool! Virtual Reality helmets! They put the helmets on and DISAPPEAR! The lights dim as they go into the game. Cosmo and Wanda pop out of their fishbowl. WANDA Well, that’s not good. Timmy bursts in. TIMMY What’s up with the power surge? COSMO Shh! Chester and AJ are on TV! TIMMY What? Timmy looks at the screen and sure enough...

CUT TO: ON THE TV Chester and AJ face a hallway with several TETHER-BALL COURTS. This electronic landscape looks a lot more serious than the last trip into the game. Chester and AJ look very small in this place. SPIKED TETHERBALLS spin around the poles, winding up and unwinding. CHESTER (ON TV) This is odd. Usually Timmy’s games are filled with fuzzy bunnies. AJ (ON TV) I know! What is he, four? CHESTER AND AJ (ON TV) (LAUGHING) CUT TO: INT. - TIMMY’S ROOM - SAME TIME ON COSMO AND WANDA TIMMY Those creeps! Wait’ll I reset them... Timmy reaches for the RESET BUTTON. Wanda stops him. COSMO No! WANDA Wait! If you turn the game off while they’re in there, or if they lose their three lives... they’ll be gone forever. TIMMY What? Then I wish ‘em out of the game! COSMO You can’t! COSMO’S head turns into TIMMY’S HEAD as he quotes: COSMO “I wish for a video game that’s challenging. A game that you can’t wish yourself out of!” COSMO’S head turns back into his own head. WANDA

You either win the game, or take off the helmet. TIMMY You guys don’t do anything halfway, do you? COSMO Nope! We’re two halves of a whole idiot! Suddenly, the lights dim. TIMMY What the... CUT TO: INT. - THE LIVING ROOM - SAME TIME Timmy peers over the banister and sees Vicky turn on the living room LAMP. TIMMY (to himself) Oh great. This game is using so much energy, that anything Vicky plugs in could short out the power and turn the game off! CUT TO: INT. - TIMMY’S ROOM - SAME TIME Timmy enters and grabs the VR helmet. Cosmo and Wanda follow. TIMMY Those guys are goners, unless I get ‘em out of there. You guys keep Vicky from using up anymore power. Timmy puts the helmet on and disappears into the game. The lights dim as he enters. COSMO He’s being vague again. CUT TO: INT. - THE LIVING ROOM - SAME TIME Vicky is plugging numerous POWER CORDS into one outlet. VICKY And this is the TV. This is VCR. This is the DVD. This is surround sound. This is the combination microwave popcorn maker and

neck massager... And I don’t know what this plug does, but I ain’t paying for the electricity! The Godparents poof in, next to the outlet as MICE. WANDA We can’t let her plug all those things in! She’ll blow the power! COSMO Hey! Follow me into the TV! I’ve got an idea! Cosmo unplugs all of the cords and leaves them in a pile by the wall. Then he jumps into the back of the television. Wanda pulls out a DAY RUNNER and writes a note to herself.

9

WANDA Wednesday, March 22nd. Cosmo had an idea! She tucks her day runner away and follows Cosmo into the television. ANGLE ON VICKY She clicks the REMOTE to turn the TV on. ANGLE ON TV We see a logo that reads “I LOVE WANDA” We hear “I Love Lucy” like music. The screen fades into a set that looks like the black and white version of “I Love Lucy.” Wanda, dressed as Lucy, is holding a BABY . Cosmo, dressed like Desi Arnez, steps into frame. COSMO Wanda! You got some ‘splainin’ to do! WANDA It’s called “Explaining.” COSMO WAAAAAAA!!!!!!!! VICKY Boring! Vicky changes the channel. Wanda sits as a NEWS CASTER in front of a big “Channel 4” logo. We hear “teletype” clicking in the background. WANDA ...and now, here’s Cosmo with the weather. ON COSMO HOLDING A FEATHER.

COSMO (long beat) I thought you said feather. Vicky changes the channel again as we... CUT TO: INT. - VIDEO GAME LEVEL 1 (TETHER-BALLS OF DOOM) Timmy materializes in the game. He stands where Chester and AJ (now long gone) stood earlier. The spiked tether balls spin around, narrowly missing Timmy, but he thinks he’s safe.

10

TIMMY Cool! Tether balls! (beat) Wow... Cosmo and Wanda really made this game... A TETHER-BALL swings into frame, blowing a “hole” through Timmy. TIMMY ...tougher. He dematerializes. And then re-materializes. TIMMY I lost a life on level one! What am I, four? CUT TO: INT. - THE LIVING ROOM - SAME TIME Vicky is channel surfing. She hits the remote. The Channel “changes” to a Jerry Springer type talk show. Wanda is the host, Cosmo is the guest on the chair. WANDA Wait. You married your car? COSMO Yep. And now my kids get seventeen miles to the gallon! A CHAIR flies into frame knocking Cosmo over. Wanda stares at the screen. WANDA ...and we’ll be right back.

VICKY Yawn! She changes the channels again. CUT TO: INT. - VIDEO GAME LEVEL 1 Timmy is dodging tether balls when he and the game start to flicker like TV static. TIMMY Oh no!!! Another power surge! INT. - VIDEO GAME LEVEL 8 (JUNGLE GYM OF DOOM) Chester and AJ are crossing a massive ravine, proceeding hand over hand on MONKEY BARS. The power flickers for a moment and they “deresolve,” long enough for the bar AJ is hanging from to become unsolid. AJ Aaaaaaaaa!!!!! AJ disappears like Wile E. Coyote falling to his doom. CHESTER Cool. CUT TO: INT. - VIDEO GAME LEVEL 2 (AUNT GERTRUDE OF DOOM) Timmy enters the level and looks around -- it looks like a coral reef version of a 1950s living room. TIMMY Hey. This looks like my Aunt Gertrude’s house. The far wall moves. Suddenly, a gigantic AUNT GERTRUDE CRAB crawls towards Timmy. AUNT GERTRUDE CRAB Come here, Timmy! Let Aunt Gertrude pinch those chubby cheeks of yours! TIMMY I hope she means my face... Timmy swims for his life with Aunt Gertrude in hot pursuit. He finds a WANDA COIN. Wanda appears.

WANDA I’m a Wanda coin! You may wish for one thing to help you on this level. The crab crawls closer and closer... TIMMY I wish I had cheeks of steel! WANDA I hope you mean your face! TIMMY I do! Wanda waves her wand and Timmy’s cheeks becomes metallic, just as the Crab’s claws come in for the “kill.” The claws crack against his face, revealing tasty white crab meat. A REDNECK family enters carrying knives and forks. REDNECK DAD Suppertime! CUT TO: INT. - THE LIVING ROOM - SAME TIME Vicky changes the channel again. We see a Seinfeld like logo which reads “Cosmo” and hear a Seinfeld-esque musical sting. Cosmo stands in front of a MICROPHONE on a comedy stage. COSMO It’s a show about nothing! (beat; he looks around) How do we know when it’s done? VICKY I do! She changes the channel again. This time, Cosmo is in a commercial, singing public domain songs. He is dramatically lit, with a heavenly CLOUD FORMATION behind him. ANNOUNCER (V.O.) His velvety voice and beautiful lyrics have moved generations. COSMO (singing) The wheels on the bus go round and round! DIFFERENT ANGLE ON COSMO

ANNOUNCER (V.O.) His is a talent that will fill your heart with joy. COSMO (singing) There was a farmer had a dog and Bingo was his... Vicky changes the channel. VICKY Man! There’s nothing on today! CUT TO: INT. - VIDEO GAME LEVEL 12 (CLASS ROOM LEVEL) Chester and AJ stand at the foot of a surreal looking class room. On the far side of the room, is a TEACHER’S DESK with an APPLE on it. Between them and the teacher’s desk are rows of SCHOOL DESKS, floating several feet above a FIELD OF POINTY STICKS. CHESTER Cool! Look! ANGLE UNDER THE DESKS The pointy sticks are actually the tops of BROOMS being pushed by VIDEO JANITORS. CHESTER Apparently if you don’t get through this class, you spend the rest of your life as a janitor! AJ There’s a lesson in that. ON CHESTER AND AJ TIMMY flashes into frame, joining them. TIMMY Guys! I found you! CHESTER Hey Timmy, great game dude! TIMMY We’ve got to get out of here! AJ No way! This is the greatest video game ever!

TIMMY Guys, we only have two lives left. AJ So? It’s not like if we get wasted in here, we disappear forever, right? TIMMY Uh... CHESTER Besides, I have three lives! AJ calmly pushes Chester to his Janitorial doom. CHESTER AAAAAA! Chester re-materializes next to Timmy and AJ. TIMMY Stop it! Guys, The three of us have to stick together! Only together, through the power of teamwork can we... TIMMY’S POV Chester and AJ have begun jumping on class desks to get to the front of the room. CHESTER AND AJ (laughing as they run) TIMMY sighs and scrambles to catch up. CUT TO: INT. TURNER’S LIVING ROOM Vicky changes the channel again. This time, nothing comes on. VICKY What the? INSIDE THE TV Cosmo and Wanda are still mice. COSMO I’m all out of ideas! Wanda pulls out her day runner and scratches off her previous note.

WANDA Well, easy come easy go. VICKY (O.S.) Hey! The plugs came out! COSMO AND WANDA OH NO!!! Vicky plugs all the plugs into the wall and hits the remote, turning everything on at the same time. CUT TO: EXT. - THE TURNER HOUSE - EARLY EVENING Every light in the house flashes white. Then everything goes black. CUT TO: INT. - THE LIVING ROOM - SAME TIME ON WANDA IN THE TELEVISION - BLACK SCREEN Only her eyes are visible. WANDA Oh no! The power’s out! Timmy! Wanda’s eyes looks around. Cosmo’s gone. WANDA Cosmo? Wanda poofs off frame. INT. - TIMMY’S ROOM - A MOMENT LATER Wanda appears in Timmy’s room. She sees that Cosmo, still a mouse, is running on a TREADMILL that powers the video game. He’s trying to catch a T-BONE STEAK that is just out of his reach. COSMO I had another idea! WANDA Way to keep the power going, Sweetie. Wanda grabs her day runner again. WANDA (writing) This was a magnificent day for Cosmo.

COSMO Good thing I’m more hungry than tired! CUT TO: INT-VIDEO GAME/CLASS ROOM LEVEL The three of them stand near a portal, under a sign that reads “To Last Level.” TIMMY Guys, we really need to stop playing! I have to go. AJ No you don’t. You just went at 6:13. CHESTER Besides -- we only have one level left! Chester and AJ high-five each other and run into the next room/level. Timmy chases after them. CUT TO: INT. VIDEO GAME - LAST LEVEL - TIMMY’S LIVING ROOM Timmy and his friends enter Timmy’s living room. Everything seems normal. TIMMY Whew! We’re out of the game! AJ How anti-climatic. CHESTER Yeah, what a gyp! Timmy looks up and sees a Wanda Coin. TIMMY Hey, I don’t have floating coins in my living room... He feels his head and realizes he still has his helmet on. TIMMY My helmet! We’re still in the game!!! The room darkens. The floor shakes, then cracks open revealing... the VICKY VIPER-BOT.

VICKY VIPER-BOT (Sinister laughter) Well, well, looks like I’m having three helpings of twerp for dinner! TIMMY Take off the helmets!!! CHESTER Don’t freak dude, we still have two lives left. The Viper-bot’s tail smashes down on all of them. They dematerialize as they’re hit. After a beat, they re-appear at the level entrance. CHESTER Freak! We’re down to our last lives! The Vicky Viper-bot spins around revealing large SPIKES on her butt. She tries to sit them to death. VICKY VIPER-BOT Time to baby sit! Her Butt comes down as the trio leaps away in different directions. Vicky raises her butt again. She’s about to sit on Chester and AJ. They don’t have time to move. TIMMY NOOOOOOOO!!! They’ll be gone forever! SLO-MO Timmy jumps and pushes Chester and AJ out of the way just in time. Timmy gets sat upon, losing his last life. CUT TO: INT-TIMMY’S BEDROOM-DAY Cosmo and Wanda, terrified, stare at the video screen. All the guy’s scores are visible next to their video likenesses. Timmy’s video likeness disappears. WANDA Oh no, that was Timmy’s last life! COSMO (crying and still running on the treadmill) It’s all your fault! CUT TO:

INT-VIDEO GAME/VICKY VIPER-BOT LEVEL There is a long beat. Smoke rises from where Timmy was “destroyed.” CHESTER Whoa. He gave his last life for us. AJ Even virtually, that was pretty cool. Chester and AJ look up at Vicky with steely determination! CHESTER AND AJ You’re toast! Suddenly, a glowing white “CUT-OUT” that looks like Timmy appears in frame. It explodes into a bunch of white shards, revealing... Timmy! TIMMY I’m alive? AJ Sacrificing your life for us must have given you enough points for a free man! Timmy sees a COSMO COIN at the far end of the room, guarded by Vicky. TIMMY A Cosmo Coin! Guys, we gotta get me to that coin! Ready? ALL THREE GO! They split in three different directions and run. VICKY VIPER-BOT Fear my sitting butt! The Viper Bot’s butt moves towards AJ. Chester picks up a couch cushion and throws it over himself. She sits on the CUSHION, but it causes no damage. AJ Wow! That’s comfy! She turns her attention to Chester, plunging her open Viper Mouth at him to gobble him up. Timmy grabs a COAT RACK and throws it into her jowls, wedging them open. CHESTER Beautiful!

Timmy is now close to the coin. Vicky opens her jowls wide and fires her two fangs like cruise missiles. VICKY VIPER-BOT Bye-bye, twerp! The missiles close in on Timmy. They’re about to hit him when Chester jumps into frame and pushes the missiles against each other. They careen off screen and explode. CHESTER Go, Timmy! Go! Chester clasps his hands together and forms a step for Timmy, who uses it as a springboard to jump up and grab the Cosmo Coin! Cosmo poofs into frame. COSMO I’m a Cosmo Coin and boy am I glad to see you! TIMMY Ditto! CUT TO: INT. - TIMMY’S ROOM - SAME TIME Wanda power-walks on the treadmill in “sports gear.” WANDA This’ll be great for my glutes!

COSMO Hey, that’s just vague enough to work! Cosmo waves his wand and disappears. The front door opens. VIDEO VERSIONS OF TIMMY’S PARENTS walk in. DAD We’re back Vicky, you can go home now.
