The episode begins with Darwin trying to perform an intro for the home movie. He constantly messes up his line by saying his name wrong, saying flim instead of film and forgetting his line altogether. Gumball insists it is not hard and tries to do it in his place, but ends up pulling several muscles while trying to spin the chair around. Darwin finally says his line correctly, but unfortunately, Gumball fails to record it, much to their despair. Gumball introduces his family and friends, and welcomes the audience to "The Amazing World of—" before giving up and leaving when he believes nobody would watch it.
In the first segment, at the Wattersonhousehold, the "Moobus Gelatinous" (Richard) is in his natural habitat, the sofa, sheltering himself from responsibility. Just then, the "Kickbuttus Hystericus" (Nicole) comes home from the supermarket (or as Gumball puts it, a successful hunt). The Moobus sneaks up on the Kickbuttus to scavenge for food, and when a chicken is pulled out he goes for it. The two fight and the Moobus wins by using its "defense mechanism," farting. As the fight carries on upstairs, the groceries are ransacked by the "Runtus Decepticus" (Anais).
Next, Carrie talks directly to the audience and tells them to focus carefully in order for a "3D without glasses" effect to work. Carrie then jump-scares the audience and happily laughs about it.
Gumball and Darwin spend the day following Ocho around. They notice he is able to use the Konami Code to summon a block above him. When he hits the block with his head a dollar comes out, which he then uses to buy a candy bar. Gumball tries to hit the block with his head but only passes out as the block falls on him. Next, Ocho uses the cheat code to cheat on a test in Miss Simian's class. He then uses the cheat to outrun everybody out on the running track. Gumball believes he has figured out the code and uses it on the basketball court, but the attempt fails as Gumball literally glitches out while trying to summon a tank, pleading Darwin to "call an ambulance."
Tobias then gives lessons on how to be cool. The first lesson is lifting weights to get dates. Tobias himself struggles to do this as the camera jump cuts to Tobias lifting a single miniscule weight. The next lesson is that girls love cash, and Tobias makes it rain (by literally throwing money at Carmen, Sarah, and Masami). Now Tobias has the looks and the "fliff" and gives an example of his lady charming skills. He demonstrates by trying a pick up line on Masami, asking her for a quarter because "[he] told [his] mom he would call her when [he] fell in love." Masami takes this literally and hands him her cell phone. Tobias then awkwardly calls his mom to pick him up because of the embarrassment, then walks away in shame.
Gumball and Darwin make some commercials, the first one for "Crème de Hurgh," a pimple-inducing formula with fridge mold and ham sweat. The next is for "Baby Anais," the living baby doll. When an angry Anais begins to attack, they change the product to "The Anaihilator" with "realistic kung-fu karate chop action."
Darwin refuses to hurt himself for the sake of entertainment, so Gumball just asks him to act cute. When Gumball thinks he can do better, Darwin breaks out a "cute combo attack." The cuteness is so strong it causes Gumball to pass out and spew rainbows. Darwin takes control of the next segment, pondering the mystery of "spheres orbiting spheres" with his conspiracy theory that involves infinity and peanuts. Unfortunately, he is unable to make any sort of point as Gumball sabotages everything with the return of "The Anaihilator."
In Ninja George II, the final segment, Ninja George (played by Gumball) is convinced by the Colonel (played by Darwin) to defeat evil, even though Ninja George promised he would never raise his fists again, but when he is told that his sister, Ninja Georgina, is in trouble, he must come out of retirement one last time. After training, Ninja George goes on an adventure, where he defeats a giant, a dragon, and falls in love with a beautiful woman, whom he has to defeat because he is not emotionally ready. Ninja George arrives at the temple of Doctor Downer only to shockingly discover that the Colonel was Doctor Downer all this time. The two battle it out, but Darwin accidentally hits Gumball in the face and he starts crying, causing Darwin to do so also. The two come up with a better ending where Ninja George and Doctor Downer put their differences aside and apologize. While trying to eject the tape, Gumball accidentally deletes the entire thing, and the episode ends.
When Darwin shows the solar system chart, Uranus can be seen in an alien head-like form. While filming the cuteness challenge, this image can be seen on one of the lockers.
In the scene where Tobias tries to "get the girl," the word "bumpkin" can be seen on the graffiti on the wall, a reference to "The Bumpkin."
Ocho's cheat code is "Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A," which is a direct reference to the famous Konami Code.
Two of Ocho's cheat codes are references to the Mario game franchise. In one, he makes a block appear over his head, which ejects money upon being hit, much like the coin blocks in Super Mario games. In the other, the code makes him flash random colors and run faster, just like what would happen upon picking up a Super Star in the Mario games.
The "Baby Anais" commercial and product are based on Baby Alive commercials and products.
During the "Ninja George II" segment, Gumball is dressed similarly to John Rambo.
Carrie's last name, Krueger, is a reference to Freddy Krueger from the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series.
The tank used when Gumball tries to do the Konami code bears a resemblance to the Type 74 Tank.
Gumball doing a nature mockumentary and narrating in a British accent, is a reference to nature documentaries on BBC.
The opening of this episode shows that Carrie cannot show up on camera. However, she appears in both her own and Tobias' segment.
Part of Ocho's cheat code "left, right, left, right" is performed with respect to the viewer instead of Ocho himself (i.e. he moves right first). However, Gumball does it correctly. This difference may be the reason why Gumball's code causes him to glitch, since videogame codes are always performed from the point of view of the person in front of the TV screen.
Darwin's hat symbol changes from a face with ears to a bird in the last scenes of the episode.
In Darwin's "LIFE" video, (the second to last segment of their video), when he fast forwards normal people walking down the street, their movement and directions are inconsistent. For example, when the exercise bacon walks down the left side of the street and Gary passes in front of him, he disappears behind. Plus, when multiple people pass by in one direction, they reappear walking in the same direction.

Moobus Gelatinous vs. Kickbuttus Hystericus
[Cut to the Wattersons' living room. Richard is asleep on the couch]
Gumball: [Voice-over in British accent] And here we are, in the natural habitat, of the Moobus Gelatinous [Holds a piece of cardboard stating the preceding words] spending today, as he does everyday, sheltering himself, from responsibility. [Suddenly Richard wakes up and sniffs something in the air] But what's this?
[Nicole enters with groceries]
Gumball: It seems a nearby Kickbuttus Hystericus [Holds up another cardboard stating the preceding words] is returning from a successful hunt.
[Richard crawls across the ground and into the kitchen]
Gumball: The Moobus, will be keen to scavenge. It is essential he evades discovery. He knows that despite his size, he's no match for the physical prowess of the elegant Kickbuttus.
[Camera zooms in on Richard and Nicole. Nicole is unloading the groceries from the shopping bag onto the counter, while Richard remains hidden behind the counter]
Gumball: He's not here for the small pickings, he knows that it may be up to an hour before he is allowed to eat again. His timing, must be perfect, so he waits...and he strikes!
[Richard grabs the chicken and escapes. Nicole goes after him]
Gumball The Kickbuttus will give chase.
Nicole: Get back here, Richard!
[Nicole catches Richard, and they fight behind the couch]
Gumball: Things are looking bad for the Moobus. However, nature gave him a silent, but deadly, defense mechanism that triggers itself when he feels threatened.
[Nicole quickly gets up from behind the couch]
Nicole: [Holding her nose] Ew, Richard!
Gumball: The Moobus seizes his chance and retreats to his den.
[Richard runs on all fours upstairs, with chicken still firmly in his teeth's grasp]
Nicole: Richard, come back here! [Runs upstairs]
Gumball: The Kickbuttus defends her territory, but in doing so, commits another mistake.
[Suddenly, Anais dashes across the living room. The camera quickly pans over to Anais on the kitchen counter. She has emptied the shopping bag, and is quickly wolfing down sweets, making a mess in the process. Gumball holds up another cardboard saying, "Runtus Decepticus"]
Gumball: In this ruthless ecosystem, an unguarded kill is quickly claimed by the vultures.
[Cut to a video of Carrie. The video itself is currently in 3-D, but unfocused. It gradually comes into focus as Carrie speaks]
Carrie: Okay, [Flips hair] prepare yourself. 3-D without glasses. What I want you to do is just focus on my eyes until your vision adjusts. Now, it takes a little time, and you might need to get a little closer to the screen. The best distance is normally about three inches. Now keep watching until the 3-D effect kicks in. [Carrie's body adjusts] Keep looking...[Carrie's body adjusts closer] Almost there... almost... there--
[Carrie grows and growls at the camera very loud. She then returns to normal and laughs]
Ocho's Secret Code
[Camera cuts to school hallway]
Gumball: Why are we hiding?!
Darwin: [whispers]Shhh! Just look at him!
[Camera pans toward the hallway, revealing Ocho next to the vending machine. He looks around before performing a move]
Gumball: What is he doing? It looks like he's got worms.
Ocho: B, A.
[A block appears above Ocho's head. He jumps, making the block dispense a dollar. He inserts the dollar in the vending machine, which dispenses a candy bar]
Gumball: What the what? [Ocho then runs off snickering with candy bar in hand] Wait up! I'm gonna get some too. [Runs to the block, prepares and jumps, which knocks him out. The block falls on Gumball's head]
[Cut to Miss Simian's class]
Lucy Simian: [Off-screen] You may now start your tests.
Gumball: [Whispers] Zoom in! Zoom in! I need to see how he does this! [Camera zooms in on Ocho]
Ocho: [Performs the same move, speaks quietly] B, A! [Ocho's test flashes, making it automatically finish itself]
Gumball: Duuude... he's using cheat codes in real life.
[Cut to the school stadium. Principal Brown blows his whistle, and everyone starts running but Ocho]
Gumball: I need to learn that code, man! [Camera zooms in on Ocho] Look! He's doing it again!
Ocho: [Performs the code] B, A!
[Ocho flashes, making his body turn rainbow and emitting colorful particles, also making him way faster than everyone else that is running. He starts running and in doing so runs past Tobias and Leslie, making them fall back. He outruns Carmen, making her fall offscreen, and keeps running and crashes straight into a concrete wall]
[Cut to school playground]
Gumball: [Confident with hands on hips] Alright dude, film this! Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A!
Darwin: [Off-screen] What is this cheat for?
Gumball: It's for-- [A tank appears and Gumball is appearing in random spots around it, with "glitched pixels" appearing as well] D-d-d-d-dude! Call an am-- Call an ambula-a-a-a--
How to Be as Cool as Tobias
[Cut to Tobias at his locker in the hallway]
Tobias: [Turns to face the camera] Hi, I'm Tobias Wilson, and a lot of people ask me, "Can you teach me to be as cool as you?" [Shakes his head and deepens voice] And I say, "No, you'll never be as cool as me." [Voice goes back to normal] But I can teach you to be cooler than you, [Crosses arms] and maybe you'll be a hit with the ladies like me.
[Carrie passes by Tobias]
Tobias: [Faces Carrie] What up sunSHIN-- [Falls in his locker making a loud noise causing Carrie to look at him]

Tobias: Booyah! If you wanna get dates.. you gotta pump weights, 'cause girls can't deny.. a guy who's this fly. So let's get some muscles and score some girls.. from-- ...like, Brussels!... or- ..something. [Deep voice] Let's do this!
[Tobias grabs weights and cannot lift them. The scene jump cuts to Tobias lifting a smaller weight]
Tobias: [Drops weight] Yeah! That's what I'm talkin' about!
[Cut to the bleachers. Girls are conversing behind Tobias]
Tobias: If there's one thing girls love, it's cash. So you gotta make it rain. [Reaches into pocket, grabs money and throws it behind him, hitting Carmen, Sarah, and Masami. They try to cover themselves]
Tobias: That's right.
Sarah: Aww.. I chipped my tooth!
[Cut to a school corridor outside]
Tobias: Now I've got the look, and the fliff, all I need is the lady.
[Masami passes Tobias]
Tobias: Ahem. Hey, beautiful. You have a quarter? 'Cause I told my mom I'd call her when I fell in love. [Makes a kissing face]
Masami: Umm... no, sorry, I don't, but... you can use my cell.
[Tobias awkwardly looks at her, the phone, and the camera]
Tobias: Mph. [Awkwardly starts dialing his mom's phone number. The phone rings] Hey.. Mom.. ughhh.. could you come pick me up early today.. 'cause uh.. [Whispers] I'm kind of embarrassed. [Hangs up and gives Masami back her phone] Thanks.
Masami: No worries.
Tobias: Ahh, [Walks backwards pointing to Masami] see ya later.
[Camera whip-pans to Tobias walking down an alley depressed]
Gumball: [Off-screen] Tobias! Where are you going, dude?! Tobias! Aww, come on!

[Camera cuts to Gumball holding a jar of green slime]
Gumball: Crème de Huaah!
[Cut to Darwin gathering fridge mold and placing it in a jar, and giving a thumbs up]
Gumball: [Voice-over] With active ingredients including fridge mold and ham sweat, [Cut back to Gumball holding a jar of green slime. He rubs it on his cheeks] its pimple inducing formula is guaranteed to keep your skin oily and rank.
[Cut to Gumball walking down the hall with Carmen, Leslie and Penny looking disgustingly at his face]

Darwin: What? Why?
Gumball: [Off-screen] 'Cause that's what people want, man!
[Darwin crosses his arms]
Gumball: [Off-screen] Alright.. then uh.. look.. cute! People like to laugh at people who get hurt, and cute pets!
Darwin: Ugh... alright. [Looks cute]
Gumball: [Off-screen] You call that cute?
Darwin: What? You think you can do better?
Gumball: [Walks into frame]I'll show you cute. [Looks cute with sparkles]
Darwin: Alright. If that's what you want. [Yells] CUTE COMBO ATTACK!!
[Darwin makes a series of cute poses, making Gumball almost fall over]
Gumball: The cuteness!! It's... too much... [Faints and spews out rainbow liquid]
Darwin: Augh, this is stupid! We've got a chance here to do something that matters, and we're just trying to please the masses!
Gumball: [Muffled] Then what would you do?
Darwin: I'll show you.
[Cut to a fast-forwarded video of a field]
Darwin: [Voice-over] Life. [Cut to people walking by a store being fast-forwarded] People. [Cut to a TV showing footage of cars driving, fast-forwarded]
And only one question to drive it; [Cut to computer with screensaver on] Why? [Cut to poster of the solar system, while camera slowly rotates] We look out into space for an answer, but just find spheres orbiting spheres. [Cut to a book with "NERD LEVEL" on the front] We look inside ourselves for an answer, but just find spheres orbiting spheres.
[Cut to Darwin with a tinfoil hat, a stick, and a canvas with drawings of a peanut, eight, and an infinity sign]
Darwin: Coincidence? Think about it. Look at this peanut. [Points to the peanut with stick] Doesn't it look a lot like an eight? [Moves stick to the number eight] And look. Turn it a little, and what do you get? [Moves stick to the infinity sign, repeats "infinity" like an echo] INFINITY... infinity... infinity. Are we ruled by nature, mathematics, or-- [Screams]
Gumball: [Holding Anais, smashing the canvas and the camera] OR THE ANAI-HILATOR!!
Ninja George II
[Gumball holds a sign saying "Ninja George II"]
Darwin: Ninja George... two. [Gumball puts down sign and walks to the scene]
Darwin: [Deep voice] Ninja George!
Gumball: [Raspy] Yes, Colonel?
Darwin: You have to help us defeat evil once again!
Gumball: I can't. I promised I would never raise my fists again. [Gumball's foot pops up with a sandwich on it, and Gumball takes a bite, then the foot goes back down]
Darwin: But Ninja George! Dr. Downer has captured your sister, Ninja Georgina!
Gumball: Alright then. But first I need to train.
[Cut to Gumball hitting and fighting "with air." Cut back to the previous scene]
Gumball: Now I'm ready!
[Darwin throws an orange and Gumball immediately puts his hand out to block the attack]
Darwin: Yes, you are.
[Cut to a cardboard model of the earth, a sky, and a Gumball puppet traveling on the earth]
Darwin: [Voice-over] Ninja George traveled far and wide, but it was full of dangers. On the way he met a giant, so he had to defeat it [Gumball's cardboard model attacks a giant's cardboard model] And then he met a dragon, so he had to defeat it. [Gumball's cardboard model attacks a dragon's cardboard model] And then he met a beautiful woman, who he fell in love with, but he wasn't emotionally ready, so he had to defeat it.
Gumball: [Voice-over as Gumball's cardboard model attacks the woman] I'm sorry, it's not you, it's me.
Darwin: [Voice-over] And then he arrived at the evil temple of Dr. Downer.
[Cut back to the real Gumball and Darwin]
Gumball: Give me back my sister!
Darwin: [With robot helmet] Dun dun DUNNN!! [Removes helmet, revealing his Colonel form]
Gumball: [Gasps and points] Colonel! It was you all along?!
Darwin: Yes! I tricked you into coming here to defeat you!
Gumball: But why didn't you attack me before my training?!
Darwin: Uhhh... let's fight!
Gumball: Ay ya ya! [Punching in front of himself]
Darwin: [Kicking in front of himself] Huh! Huh! Huh! [Accidentally kicks Gumball's cheek. Silence. The feline bursts into tears, rubbing his cheek, as Darwin throws off his shades.]
Darwin: No, no, no, no, no! Please don't cry! [Starts crying] Please! You know that - when you cry, I cry. What are we gonna do? We're supposed to jump through a window in the next scene!
Gumball: We need another ending.
[Cut to Gumball and Darwin's face, hugging each other]
Gumball: I'm sorry I made you feel like the second best ninja in the world, Dr. Downer.
Darwin: No, Ninja George. It's me who's sorry for being such a prissy little jerk and capturing your sister.
[They stop hugging and shake hands]
Gumball: I think we both learned that expressing our feelings is way better than a fight to the death.
Gumball and Darwin: [Throw hands in the air] Yaaay! Mega happy ending!
Gumball: [Walks over to the camera and grabs it] Alright, how do you eject the tape?
Darwin: It's the red button!
Gumball: You sure? [Menu pops up with an arrow slowly going down the list of icons, first being eject, last being delete] I thought the red button was to record.
Darwin: Nah, it's definitely eject.
Gumball: [Arrow is on delete] Alright! Aw, man, I can't wait to see this!
[Gumball presses the delete button, causing the whole screen to glitch up, and the episode ends]
