The Episode starts with a mysterious shadow lurking beyond SpongeBob's House. SpongeBob then wakes up and then decides to watch a cowboy film. Gary then sees a bizarre looking figure in his water bowl.
SpongeBob sees this before that creature disappears out of thin air. He ignores it saying it was probably nothing and then grabs both some popcorn and Patrick to go along with the movie he is watching.
Gary then sees the creature again when he sees a puddle. Plankton comes by and the creature disappears yet again. Gary then gets upset for a bit. He is then called back in by SpongeBob saying that it's bath time.
However, before Gary gets in the tub, the Black Puddle Queen appears once again. Causing Gary to be clogged up and Sandy rescuing him from it. That night, Gary then gets kidnapped by the Black Puddle Queen while both Gary and SpongeBob are sleeping.
Once SpongeBob realizes this, Mermaid Girl come in to save the day. After getting Gary back before he was eaten alive, Mermaid Girl advises SpongeBob to dry up the puddle. Mermaid Girl leaves and the episode ends like that.
This episode was confirmed by creator of Courage the Cowardly Dog" John R. Dilworth that he will help out with the writing toward this episode
