Some people have siblings who scare them, dress up as monsters, just for laughs, but monsters aren't real, right?
Carlton believes EVERYTHING his older brother, Milt, tells him. When Milt dresses up as a monster, Carlton then starts to believe in monsters and is now afraid of everything. When he realizes that no one will catch all the monsters, he decides to be the world's first Creature Catcher. As Carlton is practicing his monster catching skills on his family, his dad finally says enough is enough and forces Carlton to get a job. Meanwhile a kid on the beach eating a Laffy Daffy meal throws a French fry into the water. Which then wakes up a sea monster. When the sea monster raids the burger joint that Carlton works at, it's time for him to put his Creature Catcher powers to good use!
