After going to a symphony with Slimer, Egon decided to give him a conductor's baton. Slimer mistook it for something to eat at first but began to imitate a conductor. He spun out of control into a concert sign. At Egon's suggestion, Slimer was inspired to have his own symphony, with a little help from his friends. Slimer spoke to Chilly while she drove on her route. Chilly agreed to sing and belted out a tune that shattered anything made of glass nearby. Slimer began posting advertisements of his symphony throughout a park. Meanwhile, Professor Dweeb and Elizabeth relaxed on a park bench. As Dweeb brainstormed, a bird laid an egg on his head. Slimer pasted an ad on the back of his head and flew off. Dweeb read it and was offended Slimer had the audacity to call himself a 'Professor' in it. He quickly formed another idea.

Slimer's Saturday concert in the park began. Professor Von Ludwig took the stage and started the show. Slimer's friends and foes applauded. Luigi was on drums, Bud on guitar and Rudy on piano. Chilly, Janine, and Mrs. Van Huego sang "Please Mr. Postman." Dweeb and Elizabeth spied on the concert nearby. Dweeb had a new device that turn anything into rubber and tested it on Elizabeth. He sneaked over to the concert stage and sprayed around. Things didn't go as planned and Van Huego landed right on Dweeb. Dweeb's equipment went haywire and he bounced to astronomical heights. Dweeb and Elizabeth kept on bouncing into the evening. Slimer, in his clubhouse, pulled down the shades and called it a night.
