  • The reason why the monsters need to scare.

    In this half-hour episode, the Gromble warns the class that they have been lacking in scaring recently, doing other things, as told to him by a meter in the Pool of Elders. He warns that if they do not scare, they may start to "disappear." Nobody believes him, until Ickis notices his hand is mysteriously gone. Then the monsters start to literally disappear, losing various body parts. Really freaky stuff if you're a little kid. So it is up to Ickis' head and Krumm's eyeless body to save the day.

    It's really a genius concept: Either you scare, or you disappear until you're dead and gone.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (2)

    • The Gromble never actually goes to the Hall of Records to look up anything, he only uses the Scare Meter located inside The Pool. Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm go to the Hall of Records to look up easy scares, but that is after they've all started to disappear.

    • This episode is sometimes (including on the "official Nickelodeon site) wrongfully paired with "The Ickis Box". If anything, only the episode "The Pool of Elders" could be paired with this; "Where Have All the Monsters Gone" is a full 30-minute episode. However, "The Pool of Elders" isn't an actual episode, just a rumored title for the first half of this episode.
