A sneak peek of this episode was aired immediately after the Henry Danger episode, Toon in For Danger to 1.41 million viewers. However, on the official series premiere, it aired to 1.48 million viewers.
At Henry’s House:
The episode begins with Henry sleeping at home and suddenly got woken up by Ray. He informs him to head to the Man Cave and bring bagels from Schneider’s Bakery. He then heads to the Man Cave, busts his bedroom door but forgot his clothes and the doorknob fell because he busted the door.
The Man Cave:
Henry arrives at the Man Cave along with the bagels that Ray asked him to buy and notices that nearly the entire floor is filled with popcorn. Ray and Schwoz were looking at the two pieces of popcorn to see if they are an exact match but Charlotte notices that a robber jacked a school bus. Ray then gets annoyed and Henry said that he triple beeped him about what is happening. Ray and Schwoz wanted Henry to look at the two pieces of popcorn to see if they are an exact match. Charlotte thinks that they are both wrong because the third law of thermal popcornial dynamics clearly states: “It is impossible for two pieces of popcorn to be exactly identical”. When Charlotte puts the popcorn in the micro particle scanner, the two pieces of popcorn are 99.4% identical. This causes Ray and Schwoz to rage. Henry and Ray then get sad because Ray really wants to find two pieces of popcorn that match. It was also Schwoz’s dream as well but Charlotte said that his dream was to grow hair, which came true. On his back! Henry then has an idea of going to the Swellview movie theater and check all the popcorn there. Charlotte worries about the school bus and the kids. Ray suggests that she should go and grab the school bus to save the kids and leave.
Swellview Movie Theater:
At the theater, people were watching Spooderman IV: The Spood Strikes Back until Henry and Ray disguise as the FPI - Federal Popcorn Inspectors to check everyone’s popcorn and see if the two pieces match. One person said that they were blocking the screen and said that they have to check their popcorn.
The Gas Station:
Rage arrives at the gas station to steal snacks and asks if anyone wants anything while he is there. The children were scared and he took it as a no. While Rage was stealing snacks, Charlotte shows up inside a trash can and runs inside the bus to save the kids.
Back at the Swellview Movie Theater:
At the Movie Theater, people were leaving as the film credits appeared. When Henry and Ray were checking the popcorn, they failed to find an exact match and wanted to tell Charlotte that she was right and they were wrong. Ray finds out that they can use a device to make a duplicate of anything. When Ray duplicates the popcorn into two pieces, he examines them and finds out that they are 100% identical. They were about to return to the Man Cave but the first piece of popcorn was a alive and turned evil! The evil piece of popcorn bites Henry’s nose and causes Ray to punch Henry’s face to get the evil piece of popcorn off his nose and escapes. Ray finds out that when someone uses the device, it sometimes turns the duplicated object evil. When the popcorn monster escapes, Henry and Ray point out where the monster is, jumps in the butter and drinks it all up. When the monster is forming, he begins to expand and explodes into pieces of popcorn. This caused nearly everyone to leave the theater. The popcorn begins to reform and grow into a monster. He screams at the birthday boy, steals a drink and spills it all over his clothes. The monster destroys the building and goes out the back.
