Episode Recap

Josh, who does his best to make everyone think he isn't afraid of anything, gets himself into trouble after he promises to steal the nose off of a clown statue in a spook house, Laughing in the Dark. The only catch is that the clown statue is modeled after a treacherous clown, named Zeebo, who died when one of the cigars he was smoking caught the old spook house on fire. Josh thinks nothing of it and after taunting his friends for a while, settles in for a quiet night by himself. Unfortunately for Josh, Zeebo has other plans. The clown terrorizes Josh until he decides to return the nose. Josh has learned his lesson, and will never forget that the most fun you'll have in the park, is when you're laughing in the dark!
