It was Halloween night, and everyone at the Smith household was all dressed up for the occasion.
Lilo Pelekai was dressed up like a mermaid. Chip was dressed up like Flynn Rider from Tangled. Dale was dressed up like a groom. Dr. Horace N. Buggy, Lilo's uncle, was dressed up like Dracula. Pocahontas was dressed up like a fairy. John Smith was dressed up like a waiter. Young Simba was dressed up like Tarzan, and Penny was dressed up like a zombie whose body parts could be served at horrifying restaurants.
"Oh, you guys look great!" John Smith exclaimed.
"So you're a waiter?" Pocahontas asked.
"Yes, I am," John Smith said. "Would you like to look at our special tonight?" He lifted the lid, revealing Penny inside the table. Her head was on a plate.
"Boo!" Penny said. It made Lilo, Chip, and Dale laugh.
"Oh my goodness, it's my favorite dish, Penny face!" Pocahontas exclaimed. She ran up to Penny, grabbed her face, and kissed her on the forehead. "You know what, darling, it's a little chilly out. Would you run upstairs and grab your sweater?"
Penny did as she was told.
"That's my girl!" John Smith said.
"Wow, Pocahontas," Horace said. "You look great!"
"Oh, why thank you, Horace," Pocahontas smiled sweetly. "You do, too. And you too, John Smith."
"Really? It's my wedding tux. It still fits." John Smith said.
"Like a paint job." Horace said. Then he noticed Lilo dressed up as a mermaid, Chip dressed up as Flynn Rider, and Dale dressed up as a groom. "Hey, Dale, my nephew!" he said. He picked up the little red-nosed chipmunk and gave him a hug. "This is your seventh Halloween!" Then he looked down at Lilo and Chip and asked them, "What is he?"
"Isn't he a cutie?" Lilo said, "He's a groom."
"A groom?!" Horace asked, not believing his niece.
"I mean an evil corpse groom." Chip said.
Horace faced Dale again. "Oh, good! That's better!" he said. He and Dale hugged each other.
As soon as Penny grabbed her orange-and-vermilion-striped sweater, she stopped at the railing, waiting to jump around.
John Smith glared at her. "Don't even think about it, Penny!"
Penny glared back at him. "Don't even think about it!" she said in a mocking tone.
"Baby!" Simba said.
"Simba, that's not a nice thing to say to Penny." Pocahontas said.
John Smith didn't believe her. "You don't think I mean it?" he asked, "Just try me! I am the head of the household here! I am the boss!"
"I'm the boss!" Penny mocked him.
"You're nothing but a baby!" Simba said.
"Simba, stop calling your sister names!" Pocahontas scolded lightly.
Lilo, Chip, Dale, and Horace just gasped at Penny's insolence, and John Smith was losing patience.
"You are really getting on my nerves, young lady!" he scolded, "Don't you DARE jump off the step!"
Penny was being willful. "Make me!"
"You're such a baby!" Simba said.
"That's enough now, Simba." Pocahontas told him.
Penny jumped off the last three steps.
"ALL RIGHT!" John Smith yelled, "THAT DOES IT, I WARNED YOU! NO TRICK-OR-TREATING!" Lilo, Chip, Dale, Horace, Pocahontas, and Simba gasped in shock.
Penny glared angrily at John Smith and yelled, "YOU'RE AS EVIL AS MEDUSA!" She then stomped off to her room, where her three mouse friends, Bernard, Miss Bianca, and Jake, are waiting for her.
"So just Chip, Dale, and I are going?" Lilo asked.
"Yes, darling." Pocahontas said.
Lilo became so happy. She said, "YAY!" She then ran to her own room with Chip and Dale following her.
"John Smith, what was that all about?" Pocahontas asked.
John Smith shook his head guiltily. "I don't know," he said. "I was so mad it just came out."
"But you saw her." Pocahontas said.
"She's totally out of control!" John Smith replied.
"But it's Halloween," Horace said. "It's trick-or-treating!" Unfortunately, he didn't realize the doorbell rang.
"Horace, I've begged, I've pleaded, I've given her spankings, I've given her time-outs, I've washed her mouth out with soap! None of them worked! I had to do something." John Smith said.
"But you don't take away a religious holiday!" Horace said, "Think of Stitch, Lilo, Chip, Dale, Bianca, and the Lost Animal Children."
