Spew Tube is episode 1a of the series.
Summary[edit | edit source]
After trying to skateboard down Lucius's stair railway, Jimmy, Beezy and Heloise end up finding some old videos in the basement. One of the videos is a younger Lucius attempting to dive off the high diving board into a pool and doing a belly flop in his underwear, giving him the name "Belly-Flop Lucius". Heloise puts the video on Spew Tube (a video streaming website in Miseryville), and everyone sees it, including Lucius. Humiliated and angered because of his video, Lucius decides to capture Jimmy, Beezy and Heloise and destroy them. Jimmy then gets the idea to make a new video and put it on Spew Tube, only the video will make Lucius look tough. All attempts fail and everyone gets to see more embarrassing videos of Lucius. The last attempt has Samy saying things to make Lucius angry. Filled with rage, Lucius starts to chase Samy. He then shouts into the camera, to everyone watching, which makes them run in terror. Upon Lucius burning all the cameras, Heloise throws one more out the window causing Lucius to jump out the window after it. Jimmy and Beezy also jump after him, making a new video for Helois
