C'MON, LET'S TRY THE NEXT HOUSE.

JACKIE: IT'S MY PIANO TEACHER'S HOUSE.

THEY ALWAYS DO FUN STUFF OUTSIDE.

SCARECROW: HA HA! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

MATT: WHOA, A TALKING SCARECROW!

PUSH A BUTTON, GET A TREAT!

MATT: COOL, A CANDY MACHINE!

I LOVE COCONUT RASPBERRY SUGAR BOMBS!

JACKIE: MY TURN!

OH! I DON'T LIKE SUGAR BOMBS.

MAYBE IF I PRESS A DIFFERENT BUTTON,

I'LL GET A DIFFERENT CANDY BAR.

ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT.

JACKIE: TOTALLY TASTIES!

OH, MAN, THESE ARE THE BEST!

YOU'RE TURN, INEZ.

HMM, LET'S SEE, BUTTON IN, CANDY OUT.

YELLOW GAVE A SUGAR BOMB, GREEN GAVE TOTALLY TASTIES.

WONDER WHAT RED WILL DO?

WELL, TO BE SURE, GO WITH WHAT YOU KNOW.

THAT WAY YOU'RE IN CONTROL.

OKAY, I'M GOING WITH YELLOW.

IF IT WORKS THE SAME AS BEFORE, I'LL GET A SUGAR BOMB.

IT WORKED!

WANT A SUGAR BOMB? PRESS YELLOW.

MATT: TOTALLY TASTIES-- PRESS GREEN.

RESULTS YOU CAN COUNT ON!

AYE, FOLLOW ME, MATEYS,

LET'S SEE WHAT TREASURE AWAITS NEXT DOOR! ARRRH.

DIGIT:

  • THOSE TRICK OR TREATERS

WILL COME MY WAY *

  • IT'S HALLOWEEN,

MY FAVORITE DAY. *

DA-DA-DA-DA DA DA-DA-DA-DA DA-DA-DA DA DA-DA-DA DA DA...

MOTHERBOARD'S VOICE: DIGIT! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

WATERING THE NEW GARDEN, MOTHERBOARD,

JUST LIKE YOU ASKED.

MOTHERBOARD'S VOICE: TURN THE CLIMATE CONTROL TO MEDIUM EXPOSURE, PLEASE.

DIGIT: MEDIUM EXPOSURE... COMIN' UP.

DIGIT: AH, OUR FIRST TRICK OR TREATER.

COMING! COMING!

WHAT A FUN COSTUME.

IT'S ME, MOTHERBOARD.

YOUR WAYWARD CHILD HAS RETURNED.

HACKER!

HACKER

AHOY! WAIT UP, MATEYS.

MY SKWAK PAD'S A BEEPIN'!

EMERGENCY! HACKER'S HERE!

JACKIE: HACKER'S THERE? WITH YOU?

ACTING STRANGE. WANTS TO COME HOME.

HOW WEIRD IS THAT?

LET'S GO!

I KNOW, YOU THINK I'M A VIPER.

A NEFARIOUS KNAVE. A MALEFICENT MALEFACTOR!

INEZ: HUH, YOU'RE NOT?

HACKER: I WAS, BUT I'VE CHANGED!

I'VE GIVEN UP MY DESPICABLE WAYS!

YOU'VE SEEN THE DOOR TOO.

USE IT!

OH, DIGIT! MY OLD FRIEND, MY OLD PAL

DON'T BE SO HARD ON ME!

I'VE MISSED YOU!

UGH! LET GO OF ME!

WHAT DO YOU WANT, HACKER?

A CHANCE TO REDEEM MYSELF, MOM.

IT'S ALL IN HERE.

"PUT GOOD OUT INTO THE UNIVERSE,

AND GOOD COMES BACK TO YOU!"

AND LISTEN TO THIS:

"TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM TREAT YOU!"

WHY IT'S PURE GENIUS!

JACKIE: THAT'S THE GOLDEN RULE!

MATT: YEAH, EVERYONE KNOWS IT.

WELL, IT WAS NEWS TO ME.

MOTHERBOARD: AFTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE...

TO THE CYBER UNIVERSE... AND TO ME...

YOU'RE NOT WELCOME HERE!

LET'S FACE IT,

WHAT HAS BEING ROTTEN DONE FOR ME?

FAME, WEALTH, INFINITE POWER... YGH!

I THINK I'M GOING TO BE SICK.

I KNOW NOW THAT,

YOU'RE NOBODY TILL SOMEBODY LOVES YOU.

OF COURSE, I DON'T EXPECT YOU TO LOVE ME RIGHT OFF THE BAT.

HA! DON'T WORRY, WE DON'T.

TO PROVE I'VE CHANGED,

I'LL START BY REMOVING THAT AWFUL VIRUS I GAVE YOU.

ADJUST MY CIRCUITS?!

NEVER!

SECURE HIM IN THE GARDEN,

TILL WE FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH HIM!

JACKIE: A FROG?

MATT: WHAT'S HE DOING WITH A FROG?

DIGIT: I DON'T KNOW,

BUT I DON'T CARE WHAT HE SAYS OR HOW HE'S DRESSED,

I DON'T TRUST HIM!

UH-OH! NOW HE'S PLAYIN' WITH IT!

JACKIE: MAYBE IT'S JUST A TOY.

DIGIT: NO WAY! HACKER DOESN'T PLAY WITH TOYS!

MY UNCLE EMILIO ALWAYS SAYS,

"THE TRUTH IS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN WHAT YOU THINK,

AND WHAT YOU KNOW."

JACKIE: MEANING?

INEZ: IF I KNOW HACKER,

THAT FROG'S GOING TO DO SOMETHING TERRIBLE!

BUT WHAT? WHAT CAN A FROG DO?

WE BETTER FIND OUT QUICK!

YOU'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, PAL!

HACKER: BUT THE FROG IS A PRESENT FOR MOTHERBOARD.

IT JUST SEEMED SO RIGHT FOR THE GARDEN.

JACKIE: IF THAT'S TRUE, YOU CAN HAVE IT BACK...

MAYBE.

OF COURSE, I UNDERSTAND. YOU'RE STILL UNEASY.

AS THE BOOK SAYS, BUILDING TRUST TAKES TIME.

BUT ONCE YOU SEE THAT MY PRESENT IS COMPLETELY HARMLESS,

I'M SURE WE CAN ALL BECOME REALLY GOOD FRIENDS.

IN THE MEANTIME,

I'LL JUST SIT HERE AND READ MY BOOK.

AH, BLISS.

JACKIE: MAN, HE IS TOO NICE.

NICE MY EYE!

HACKER'S UP TO SOMETHING, GUARANTEED!

HM, MAYBE IT HAS TO DO WITH THESE BUTTONS HE WAS PUSHING.

LET'S FIND OUT WHAT THIS THING CAN DO.

BUZZ! DELETE!

BOSS, YOU MADE IT IN!

HOW GOES OPERATION BULLFROG?

BRILLIANTLY! DARKSPOT IS IN THE BUILDING.

BUZZ: WAY TO GO, BOSS!

THIS IS YOUR NASTIEST SCHEME EVER!

DID YOU GET HIM INSIDE THE AIR VENT

SO WE CAN POWER HIM UP, LIKE?

NOT YET, THERE'S BEEN A SLIGHT GLITCH!

BUT ONCE DARKSPOT IS HIP-HOPPING

THROUGH MOTHERBOARD'S CIRCUITS, THE REST IS UP TO YOU!

DELETE: WE GOT IT COVERED, BOSS!

ONCE DARKSPOT IS INSIDE,

WE'LL GUIDE HIM RIGHT TO MOTHERBOARD'S CPU!

BUZZ: A COUPLE OF BITES OUT OF THAT

AND IT'S LIGHTS OUT FOR MOTHERBOARD!

YEAH. CRASH TIME!

MATT: MAYBE IT'S SUPPOSED TO GO SOMEWHERE SPECIAL...

LIKE ON A SECRET MISSION.

YEAH!

MAYBE HACKER PROGRAMMED IT TO DO SOMETHING REALLY BAD!

ALL WE KNOW IS,

WHEN HACKER PUSHED A BUTTON THE FROG HOPPED AWAY!

WE NEED MORE INFO!

WE'VE GOT TO PROTECT MOTHERBOARD!

I WONDER IF THE NUMBER ON THE BUTTON

CONTROLS HOW MANY HOPS.

INPUT CAUSES OUTPUT, YOU KNOW.

JUST LIKE GETTING A SUGAR BOMB FROM THE SCARECROW!

JACKIE: INPUTTING A ONE.

TWO HOPS FORWARD.

DO IT AGAIN, JAX... JUST TO MAKE SURE.

JACKIE: INPUT A ONE...

TWO HOPS FORWARD. SAME OUTPUT AS BEFORE.

HUH! A ONE GETS YOU TWO.

BETCHA A TWO GETS YOU THREE HOPS.

KIDS: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!

FOUR HOPS? SOMETHIN' MUST BE WRONG!

NOT NECESSARILY, DIDGE.

MAYBE THAT'S JUST WHAT INPUTTING A TWO DOES--

MAKES IT HOP FOUR TIMES.

MATT: INPUTTING A TWO AGAIN.

KIDS: ONE... TWO... THREE... FOUR!

SAME RESULT FOR THE SAME INPUT!

GREAT! WE'RE IN CONTROL.

I BETTER GET THIS DOWN ON MY SKWAK

OR WE'LL NEVER KEEP TRACK.

INEZ: INPUT A THREE, GUYS.

BUZZ:

DELETE: C'MON BUZZ, LET ME PRACTICE!

I'M NOT DONE YET!

NO FAIR, NO FAIR!

KNOCK IT OFF, YOU DUNCEBUCKETS!

THAT JOYSTICK IS THE KEY TO OPERATION BULLFROG!

YOU HOLD MY ENTIRE FUTURE IN YOUR CLUMSY LITTLE HANDS,

SO BE CAREFUL!

INEZ: OKAY, WE'VE TRIED THEM ALL. WHAT DO WE KNOW?

WE KNOW THE FROG HOPS WHENEVER WE INPUT A NUMBER.

AND EACH NUMBER GIVES US A DIFFERENT NUMBER OF HOPS.

INPUT A ONE AND WE GET TWO HOPS.

A TWO GIVES US FOUR HOPS,

A THREE GIVES US SIX,

A FOUR GIVES US EIGHT,

AND A FIVE GIVES US TEN HOPS.

ALL RIGHT! THERE'S A PATTERN THERE.

A PATTERN

MATT: LOOK. A ONE GETS YOU TWO, A TWO GETS YOU FOUR.

THE HOPS OUT ARE ALWAYS TWICE THE NUMBER IN.

INEZ: THAT'S A RULE!

THE FROGS OUTPUT IS ALWAYS TWICE THE INPUT.

WORKS FOR ME.

ME TOO.

HEY, WE FORGOT ABOUT THESE BUTTONS!

MATT: IT MADE A QUARTER TURN TO THE RIGHT!

JACKIE: PUSH IT AGAIN, DIDGE!

ANOTHER QUARTER TURN!

IF I KEEP PUSHIN' THE "R",

EL FROGO SHOULD MAKE A FULL CIRCLE!

TRY PUSHING THE "L" BUTTON.

JACKIE: THE "L" MAKES IT TURN LEFT!

INEZ: COOL!

WITH THE RIGHT INPUT,

WE CAN MAKE THIS GUY GO FORWARD, LEFT, RIGHT...

WE'VE GOT COMPLETE CONTROL!

WHICH MEANS...

ALL: WHAT?

WELL, I'M NOT SURE...

BUT WE KNOW THAT THE BUTTONS ARE INPUTS WE CAN USE

TO MAKE THE FROG TURN AND HOP WHEREVER WE WANT.

WHAT'S THAT GOT TO DO WITH WHY HACKER SHOWED UP HERE?

MAYBE NOTHING.

MAYBE IT IS JUST A TOY.

NOW TELL ME AGAIN,

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN DARKSPOT IS INSIDE?

BUZZ: UH, WE PRESS GO

AND USE THE JOYSTICK TO MOVE IT AROUND, RIGHT?

HACKER: THEN?

DELETE: GUIDE THE FROG TO MOTHERBOARD'S CPU.

THEN MUNCH, MUNCH!

PRECISELY!

SOMEONE'S HERE!

HATE TO SAY IT, HACKER, BUT EVEN MOTHERBOARD AGREES.

YOUR FROG APPEARS TO BE HARMLESS.

NO HARD FEELINGS, OLD FRIEND.

YUCK!

LET'S LET BYGONES BE BYGONES.

AAH! CUT THAT OUT!

JUST BECAUSE YOU GOT YOUR FROG BACK

DOESN'T MEAN WE TRUST YOU OR LIKE YOU!

TA-TA!

GO, DARKSPOT, GO!

FULFILL MY DESTINY AT LAST!

BUZZ: OOH-OOH! LOOK, DEEDEE!

DARKSPOT IS BLINKING! OH!

I GOTTA START CONTROLLING IT.

HEY, IT DIDN'T MOVE.

THAT'S CAUSE YOU DIDN'T PUSH THE GO BUTTON.

I'LL DO IT!

BUZZ: OH NO!

YOU PUSHED GROW, NOT GO!

GROW? OH, NO!

I BETTER FIX IT.

I'LL DO IT!

I WANNA DO IT!

BOTH: UH-OH.

NOW LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE!

HACKER: SO I SAID, SORRY LADY, NOT POTATO CHIPS...

COMPUTER CHIPS!

ALL: HUH?

HACKER: I GUESS YOU HAD TO BE THERE.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

WE'RE HANGING WITH HACKER.

I KNOW. UGH! HOW GROSS!

MOTHERBOARD: SECURITY ALERT!

MATT: I KNEW IT!

JACKIE: C'MON!

SECURITY ALERT! SECUR-

JACKIE: WHAT DID YOU DO HACKER?

OH, SURE. BLAME THE BAD GUY.

DIGIT: SOMETHING GOT INTO OUR OPERATING CIRCUITS!

NOTHING IN SECTOR ONE!

MATT: SECTOR TWO IS CLEAR.

INEZ: SECTOR THREE IS...

WAIT A MINUTE! I SEE SOMETHING!

DIDGE, BRING IT INTO FOCUS!

DIGIT: NOTHIN! SECTOR THREE IS CLEAR.

YOIKES! IT'S HACKER'S FROG!

WHAT'S IT DOING OUT THERE?

IT'S HEADED RIGHT FOR MOTHERBOARD'S CPU!

MATT: C'MON GUYS! WE'VE GOTTA FIND THAT FROG!

YOU STAY HERE!

DIGIT: HE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

THE FROG SHOULD BE IN HERE SOMEWHERE.

GO THAT WAY.

JACKIE: FORGET IT! NO WAY I'M GOING DOWN THERE!

IT'S TOO DARK AND SCARY!

MATT: WE DON'T HAVE A CHOICE, JAX.

WE HAVE TO STOP THAT FROG BEFORE IT REACHES THE CPU.

HEY, IS IT RAINING IN HERE?

FROG:

KIDS:

KIDS: RUNNNN!

RUN!

RUN!

JACKIE: WAIT! WE CAN'T RUN, WE HAVE TO CATCH THAT THING!

OR WE CAN GO HOME AND GO TRICK OR TREATING.

JACKIE: IS THAT WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT?

HALLOWEEN FUN? TRICK OR TREATING?

NO! NOT WHEN MOTHERBOARD NEEDS US!

SO WHAT IF THERE'S SOME GIANT FROG ON THE LOOSE!

SO WHAT IF IT'S SCARING THE HECK OUT OF US!

WE'VE GOT A JOB TO DO!

UH, JACKIE?

WHAT?!

RUN!

IT'S GETTING A BIT NIPPY IN HERE.

HOW CLOSE IS THAT DARKSPOT TO THE CPU?

UH, I THINK YOU SHOULD ASK FOR A REFUND BOSS.

REFUND?

YEAH!

YOU SHOULD SUE WHOEVER SOLD YOU THIS JOYSTICK THINGY.

IT'S A PIECE OF JUNK.

I MADE THE JOYSTICK THINGY!

WHAT'S GOING ON THERE?

WELL, IT'S KINDA FUNNY, ACTUALLY.

THERE WE WERE,

GUIDING THE FROG WITH THE JOYSTICK,

JUST LIKE YOU SAID...

AND THE NEXT THING WE KNEW

THE SILLY JOYSTICK SORT OF FELL OFF!

FELL OFF?!

OH, AND ONE OTHER THING.

SOMEHOW, THE FROG GOT REALLY, REALLY BIG.

BIG? YOU DUNCEBUCKETS!

IF HE'S TOO BIG,

HE'LL NEVER FIT INTO THE CPU AREA

TO DEVOUR MOTHERBOARDS CIRCUITRY.

JACKIE: IF WE DON'T FIND THAT FROG SOON, MOTHERBOARD IS DOOMED.

DIGIT: WHAT ABOUT HACKER?

JACKIE: OH YEAH, I FORGOT ABOUT HIM. HE'S DOOMED TOO!

ALL: FROG!

JACKIE: MAN! LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING!

INEZ: WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

IT'S NOT MOVING.

JACKIE: MAYBE IT'S MAKING A PLAN.

MATT: THIS IS ALL HACKER'S FAULT.

ONCE A LUMP OF GARBAGE, ALWAYS A LUMP OF GARBAGE.

SAY THAT AGAIN.

MATT: ONCE A LUMP OF-

GARBAGE! THAT'S IT!

THAT'S HOW WE GET RID OF THE FROG!

JACKIE: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

DIGIT: WE GET IT INTO THE GARBAGE CHUTE AROUND THAT CORNER

AND TAKE IT OUT WITH THE TRASH!

JACKIE: GREAT IDEA!

WE KNOW HOW TO CONTROL HOW IT MOVES!

MATT: ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS GET CLOSE ENOUGH

TO PUSH THE INPUT BUTTONS.

INEZ: OH NO, DON'T LOOK AT ME.

WHOA!

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS?

MATT: PUSH A BUTTON AND TAKE CONTROL!

INEZ: WHOA!

JACKIE: IT WORKED!

INEZ: AROUND THAT CORNER, DIDGE?

DIGIT: ROGER! THEN AROUND ANOTHER CORNER, DOWN A FEW HOPS,

AND WE'RE THERE.

FOUR HOPS OUGHT TO GET ME TO THE CORNER.

I INPUT A TWO, RIGHT?

YEP. TWO IN, FOUR HOPS OUT!

WHOA!

OH BOY! THE BOSS ISN'T GOING TO BE HAPPY ABOUT THIS!

DELETE: HEY BUZZY, IT'S STILL MOVING.

JACKIE: ONE, TWO, THREE.

DIGIT: YOU CAME UP SHORT!

JACKIE: THAT'S BECAUSE IT HOPPED THREE TIMES, NOT FOUR!

WHY

I DON'T KNOW.

MAYBE THE RULE CHANGED WHEN IT GREW.

WE NEED TO FIND THE NEW RULE AND FAST!

JACKIE: INEZ, SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU INPUT A ONE.

IT SHOULD HOP TWICE.

INEZ: WHOA!

NOPE, ONLY ONCE.

BUT THE TURN BUTTONS ARE STILL WORKING THE SAME.

LET ME INPUT A THREE.

WHOA!

MATT: RIDE 'EM, COWGIRL!

INEZ: THAT TIME IT MADE FIVE HOPS

IT MADE SIX BEFORE!

THE RULE HAS DEFINITELY CHANGED!

DIGIT: NOT ONLY THAT,

YOU PASSED THE TURN TO THE TRASHBIN

THREE HOPS BACK.

JACKIE: OKAY, WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT.

WE KNOW THAT PUTTING IN A ONE, GIVES ONE HOP.

DIGIT: AND A TWO MAKES IT HOP THREE TIMES.

JACKIE: BUTTON THREE IS FIVE HOPS.

MATT: IT LOOKS LIKE THE OUTPUT

IS NOW ONE LESS THAN TWICE THE INPUT.

AND IF THIS PATTERN CONTINUES,

FOUR SHOULD GIVE US SEVEN HOPS.

MATT: AND FIVE IN SHOULD GIVE US NINE HOPS.

JACKIE: THE RULE DID CHANGE!

NOW THE HOPS OUT ARE TWICE THE NUMBER IN, MINUS ONE!

MATT: IT'S A NEW BALLGAME WITH A NEW RULE!

WE'RE BACK IN CONTROL!

DIGIT: LET'S DASH FOR THE TRASH!

JACKIE: NOT SO FAST!

WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE'RE RIGHT.

INEZ, INPUT A FOUR.

MATT: IF WE'RE RIGHT, THAT SHOULD GET YOU SEVEN HOPS.

OKAY, BUT YOU GUYS OWE ME!

WHOA! AGH! WHOA!

JACKIE: THE NEW RULE WORKS! IT MADE SEVEN HOPS!

MATT: WE'RE GOOD TO GO, NEZZIE!

INEZ: DON'T CALL ME NEZZIE!

GET ME OUT OF HERE!

DIGIT: THREE HOPS TO THE CORNER, INEZ!

JACKIE: TO GET THREE HOPS, INPUT A TWO.

TWO IT IS!

WHOA!

DIGIT: TURN LEFT!

INEZ: TURNING LEFT!

SEVEN HOPS AND YOU'RE IN THE BIN!

JACKIE: SEVEN HOPS, INPUT FOUR!

INEZ: FOUR FOR SEVEN! TRASH, HERE WE COME!

DON'T FORGET TO JUMP OFF!

KIDS: ALL RIGHT! WE DID IT!

JACKIE: THAT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME!

MATT: WAY TO GO, NEZZIE!

INEZ: WHAT DID I TELL YOU ABOUT CALLING ME, NEZZIE?

SORRY.

THAT'S OKAY. I DON'T MIND, MATTHEW.

YOU'LL PAY FOR THIS!

DIGIT: YEAH, RIGHT. SEND ME A BILL!

KIDS: HAPPY HALLOWEEN, HACKER!

MOTHERBOARD: GOOD JOB, CYBERMATES.

YOU TURNED A TRICK INTO A TREAT.

JACKIE: THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE, MOTHERBOARD.

INEZ: YEAH, I GUESS HACKER'S NOT EVER GOING TO CHANGE.

MATT: UNLESS HE CHANGES THAT SUIT HE WAS WEARING!

TRICK OR TREAT!

GRIBET!

KIDS: AHHHHHH!

FROG KID: HEY, DON'T YOU WANT SOME CANDY?
