As a climax to the season, Dr. Weird unwittingly creates a powerful vortex within his lab. The same vortex sucks him and his assistant Steve into another dimension. Then, the vortex reappears in Carl's backyard - this time, taking Carl and Frylock after an uninspired rescue attempt by Master Shake. Seeing an opportunity, Master Shake lures and locks Meatwad in a dryer. Frylock returns to find Meatwad charged with abnormal levels of static electricity. His attempts to dispel the electricity only result in the creation of an enormous electric balloon, coined by Master Shake as "Balloonenstein."
