Summary Edit

On the eve of the 7th annual Orchid Bay Park Easter Egg Hunt, Ray Ray is practicing to win the grand prize of twenty pounds of candy by less than honorable means, carrying water guns and a Turrakus Emerald, which unbeknownst to him, just creates barriers. Meanwhile, Juniper asks Marcus to go with her to the event (she claims it's not a date). Monroe tells Ray Ray that the Easter Bunny won't leave him any gifts if he cheats to win. Ray Ray thinks he's lying, but Juniper confirms that the Easter Bunny not only exists, but there are thousands of them. Monroe then tells the story about Sweetland, where chickens make the eggs and the Easter Bunnies paint and deliver them. They are then sent by a pair of Easter Bunnies to Sweetland to intervene in a feud between the bunnies and the chickens, the latter of which are being led by Monroe's father, William. Little do they realize that a blue-skinned enchanted rhinoceros named Mitch has set them up in order for him to take over the holiday and replace the candy and eggs with AA batteries and socks. Mitch releases a candy monster that June then begrudgingly battles. Finally, the monster is defeated and Mitch gets his just desserts.

The chickens and bunnies are reprimanded by their mothers and June finally gets to answer a call from Marcus and yells at Monroe and Ray Ray that it's not a date.

Credits Edit

While June was tending with Monroe and William, Mitch was delivering his batteries and socks, but nobody cared.
