"Nightmare" is an episode in season 1. In this episode, CatDog becomes afraid of a monster in their house.



The episode starts with CatDog and Winslow watching a scary movie. The movie shows two cats running from a monster with a bread as his head called Toothpick Head. As the cats locked the door behind them, the male cat finds mold in jelly from the Titanic to use against the monster. As Toothpick Head breaks through the ceiling in the movie, Cat shows Dog a sandwich he made resembling Toothpick Head's head, causing Dog to scream. Toothpick Heads shoots toothpicks at the male cat, sticking him to the wall and dropping the jelly from his hand. The female cat opens the window which distracts Toothpick Head. Then she puts a toaster over Toothpick Head's head and plugs the toaster, killing Toothpick Head. Cat laughs after the movie ends.

In a raining night, Cat is sleeping while a scared Dog hugs a toaster. Cat wakes up, telling Dog that Toothpick Head is a make-believe monster. When Dog tries to go to sleep, he finds bread crumbs in his pillow. Cat finds mustard in his pillow and toothpicks around the bed. Dog falls asleep, but Cat becomes scared of Toothpick Head.

Cat goes downstairs wearing the toaster in his neck with Dog sleeping. When he opens the fridge, Dog pokes him, scaring Cat. Cat makes a moldy sandwich and eats it. Winslow comes out of his hole, he gets ready to leave the house. Cat throws up. Dog asks Cat if he is scared of Toothpick Head. Cat denies at first but soon says "yes" in a scared manner. Dog screams and he and Cat hugs each other in fear. Toothpick Head laughs in a transition.

In CatDog's bedroom, hundreds of toasters are placed around their bed. As the lights went out, CatDog screams. As Cat uses a flashlight, he sees Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, and Toothpick Head's shadow, but the shadow is Dog's fingers in front of the light. CatDog finds bologna falling from the ceiling. They leave from their bedroom and then Toothpick Head chases CatDog.

In the kitchen, Dog finds mold but Toothpick Head arrives. Toothpick Head shoots toothpicks at Dog, sticking him to the wall. Cat opens the windows where he tries to get the birds but they are absent. Cat puts the toaster over Toothpick Head's head and zaps him. After Toothpick Head falls, Winslow emerges out of Toothpick Head's bread. CatDog scolds Winslow for his prank. Winslow tears his face into Toothpick Head's face. He rips his face into Cat's face and rips Cat's face into Winslow's face. Cat rips Dog's face but his new face is identical to his previous face. They all laugh. Cat claims Winslow turned out the lights but Winslow claims he did not. When thunder rumbles, Winslow and CatDog screams. CatDog runs out of their house.

Winslow takes of his Cat head, reverting his head appearance. He laughs, claiming his trick as the oldest. When the refrigerator opens, Winslow screams as he sees the real Toothpick Head by the fridge. Toothpick Head says Winslow's trick is the second oldest trick in the book. The screen turns black, and displays "The End" and a question mark in red dripping liquid.
