Gumball's Department Sales Clerk

Ed the Security Guard


Chilly Cooper


Ice Cream Truck



Gumball's Department Store


Slimer played with a Yo-Yo near reception and got all tangled up. He passed by a calendar and realized it was Chilly's birthday. Slimer daydreamed about getting Chilly a present and getting a kiss out of it. He grabbed his Stay Puft Marshmallow Man bank and headed for Gumball's Department Store. Slimer passed by Radio & TV and looked around in the Toys section. He pulled the string on a bear doll and got nailed with a karate chop. Slimer sat in a toy car and played with the wheel. A clerk overheard Slimer and walked over. Slimer drove off and ran over both of the clerk's feet. Slimer emerged from sales rack in clothing and the clerk mistook him for a woman, a weird one at that.

In the cosmetics section, Slimer tried out several perfumes. A woman saw Slimer and freaked out. She ran off with a bucket over her and banged around. The manager looked down and saw Slimer tugging at him. The clerk also flipped out and called security. Ed answered and received a report of a ghost on the third floor. Ed opened up a vault and out came Bruiser. Slimer tried on several hats and hid in a cash register as Bruiser approached. Bruiser hit the buttons and the register reacted like a slot machine. Slimer appeared on the register and the drawer shot open. Bruiser was knocked across the floor into another room into a baby crib. Ed was concerned how things were turning out. Bruiser tracked down Slimer to an inflatable raft. Bruiser jumped in and Slimer let the air out. Bruiser landed on a bench and several bowling balls landed on his paws. As Bruiser struggled with a ball, Ed ordered him to get Slimer.

Slimer hid in a television set as Bruiser walked past. Bruiser checked the dials and antenna but couldn't find Slimer. In frustration, he destroyed the television with a mallet. Suddenly, Slimer appeared in every set. Bruiser emerged from the Hi-Fi room and gave Ed the thumbs up. However, Slimer emerged from the room with a boom box. Slimer arrived in the shipping department, quickly readied a package, and jumped inside. Ed and Bruiser decided not to take any chances and destroyed every single package. The clerk checked in on them and they gave him the all clear. While out on her route, Chilly received a rush package. She opened it up and found a vial of her favorite perfume. When she tried it out, Slimer came out and wished her a happy birthday. Chilly was touched since Slimer was the only one who remembered and hugged him.
