[Mickey] Here! I'm open!
Here, Ben! Ben! Ben, I'm open!
Okay! Um, start devising, preparing.
-I mean, get ready! Ugh!
Oh! [chuckles]
Ow! What was that?
Whoa. There's a note attached.
-[Hunter] Hey. That's for Mickey.
Hunter? It's for me?
[coughs] I mean, it's for me.
I mean, yeah, it's for me.
It's an invite to Hunter's
bounce house blowout party tonight!
-[Angie and Ben gasp]
-Yeah, baby!
So, you in?
No way! I mean, yeah, yeah.
[laughs] I mean, cool.
-[Angie and Ben laugh]
-Oh, uh, can my friends come, too?
-Haha, yeah.
Okay, sure, whatever.
It's the house on the corner
at the end of the block.
Just, like, follow the rhythms
hot on the box, okay? Later.
-[Angie] Whoo-hoo-hoo!
-Whoa, yeah!
[both whistling]
Hunter's parties
are supposed to be awesome.
Like one year, he had
this amaze-wheels pirate party.
Oh, yeah, with an actual pirate ship
floating in his pool.
[Mickey] And I heard, one year,
he had a petting zoo,
with lions, tigers and rhinos.
[Ben] Somebody even told me
he had an outer space party
with a real space shuttle ride.
This is going to be the ultimate,
optimal, the funnest party ever!
I just need to check with Mom.
Uh, but, um, she'll definitely say yes.
Oh, that does sound like fun, honey.
Uh, but what about Jammin' Night?
That's tonight?
Oh, no! I love Jammin' Night.
Uh, what's a Jammin' Night?
It's kind of a Love family tradition.
Every year, Grandma Ruby
gets the whole family to help her make jam
with fruit from our tree.
And it's so much fun.
The whole neighborhood comes. Ugh!
But how can I go to Jammin' Night
and Hunter's party?
It's impractical, unworkable.
Um, impossible!
[Bernadette] Honey, could you
pass me the apricots?
Well, uh, we could send you photos
from the party.
[sighs] That's the best you could do?
What if Ben got all his jammin' done
before the party? Then could he go?
Uh, sure, but I don't know
how he'd do that, sweetheart.
We usually keep jammin'
till the break of dawn.
And that's why we'll help him.
Right, Mickey?
Right. Huh? What?
Uh, like I really wanna help Ben
makin' jam,
but you know,
party with the bounce house that-a-way.
Come on. If Ben was in your shoes,
he'd do the same.
[laughs] Huh?
Why would Ben be in my shoes?
You guys are, like, the best.
Hey, where's everyone going?
To get the fruit the neighbors asked us
to pick from their trees.
But don't worry,
we left this one all for you.
[laughs] Have fun, kids.
That'll take us forever.
Is that "rhythms hot on the box"
like Hunter said?
I thought he said, "Follow the box
at the end of the block."
No way! He said,
"Follow the rhythm box on the corner."
All I know is there were blocks and boxes,
hot ones with rhythms, and corners and
Ben, chillax, okay? I'm just sayin'
the party's started. Without us.
If we have to make jam
out of the whole tree,
we aren't gonna get there
till, like, next year.
-Hey, where you goin'?
-What about your family tradition?
If we're gonna have any fun,
the family tradition needs help.
Time for some jammin', Master Piece-style.
ABC, easy as one, two, three!
Out of sight!
It's hotter than July tonight!
What's cookin', Benja-matic?
Um, apricot jam?
Think you can help?
Hot jam. I think I can.
All right, everybody, comin' through
with a bunch of baskets.
Ben, your dad.
[Dancing Machine]
Hey, what's goin' down?
Huh? Whoa!
Oh, man, I knew that'd happen.
So, how are you gonna stop your folks
from seeing you-know-who, huh?
Yeah, are you planning on telling them
all about your robot friend?
You're right. We need a disguise.
But how do we disguise Dancin'?
I wasn't talkin' about him.
I don't get it.
How does putting us in costumes
help Dancin'?
Because now, it looks like
I'm in a costume, too,
as a rockin' robot! Ha ha!
[Ben] Whoa! Whoa! Dancin, that's great,
but I think you might need to
[sighs] slow down.
Huh? Heh, heh, whoa!
Stop, Dancing Machine! I said stop!
What was that, Benja-matic?
[laughs] Okay,
enough goofin' around, kids.
[sighs] Hmm.
Now, ain't it a bit early for Halloween?
Um, yeah, but we, uh, we just
We're goin' to a party later.
Yeah, a dress-up party.
So what's your friend's name?
Uh, Dance
-Uh, Dennis.
Yeah, his name's Dennis.
-I'm Dennis, the funkadelic robot.
-[all laugh]
Okay then, kids,
let's get a little more order
to your jammin'.
[laughs] Okay, now you pick, you wash,
you peel and you cut.
[Dancing Machine] Perfect.
Mmm. Pick, peel, chop, boil.
[all] Pick, peel, chop, boil.
[singing] Everyone's feeling pretty ♪
It's hotter than July ♪
Though the world's full of problems ♪
They couldn't touch us
Even if they tried ♪
From the block, I hear rhythms ♪
It's so hot on the box ♪
Tonight, there will be a party ♪
On the corner at the end of the block ♪
I didn't know you would be jammin'
Until the break of dawn ♪
I bet you nobody ever told you ♪
We would be jammin'
Till the break of dawn ♪
You would be jammin' and jammin'
And jammin' and jammin' on ♪
Oooh! Nice work, kids.
Now, we're really cooking.
Ah. Well, that's it. Jam's done.
[all] All right! Whoo-hoo!
Jammed it, outta sight!
[beatboxing] Ha ha ha!
First batch in record time.
Um, did you say first batch?
[chuckles] Yeah, sure,
but that's the apricot jam.
But we still gotta do the plum, the peach,
-the strawberry, the mulberry.
-[all sigh]
Uh, Marvin, I think these kids
have done enough jammin' for one night.
You mean, we're excused, discharged
We can go to the party?
[all] Hmm. Hmm?
[all panting]
Wait. What happened to Dancin'?
Brrr. Right behind you, guys.
Wow! Looking sharp, Dancing.
Hey, they don't call me
the party machine for nothing. [chuckles]
Come on. There's Hunter's place.
-[all laugh]
[all] Bounce house blowout!
Anyone else's circuits powering down
out of lack of interest?
What happened to the bounce house?
You know how this
was bounce house blowout?
Well, it blew out.
And then everyone left, except us.
Oh, hey! Thanks for comin', guys.
Wanna help us
blow up the bounce house again?
Oh, as much as we'd love to
I think I have a better idea.
[all laughing]
[Ben] Is it too late
for us all to join in?
Oh, no, sweetie, we're gonna be jammin'
till the break of dawn,
so the more, the merrier.
-[Angie] Whoo!
-[Ben] Whoo-hoo! Yeah!
How come you're back so soon?
We wanted to go to the best party in town,
but it turned out it was here all along.
[singing] Oh, I bet you
If someone approached you yesterday ♪
To tell you that you would be jammin' ♪
You would not believe it ♪
Because you never thought
That you would be jammin' ♪
