The episode revolves around Dr. Victor Frankenstein reanimating the corpse of Michael Jackson some thirty years after his death, in order to reunite him with his son, Blanket, who is now a rowdy young adult. Minutes after reanimating him, Michael dies of "violent, sudden boredom" after talking to his son. In order to seem more interesting to his father, Blanket helps to fuse Micahel's bones with those of Joseph Merrick, The Elephant Man, hoping to gain his apporval. However, the plan backfires, and Michael disowns Blanket. Conversely, Victor is having father issues, and is 'adopted' by Michael. Through a number of mishaps, the Jackson/Merrick hybrid and Blanket become fused into one monsterous creature, before being bitten by a werewolf rug, and turing into one themselves.
