Career Day: Summary

Written by Rob Hummel
First aired on 5/4/2001

It’s career day at school and Dib has been paired up with a paranormal investigator named “Bill”, while Zim goes to work at a fast food restaurant called “McMeaty’s”, which is word play on McDonald’s. However, after discovering Zim is moulting due to the galactic equinox, Dib tries to convince Bill to help expose Zim. The moulting process, while disgusting and explosive, only lasts a few seconds, so it’s important that “Bill” pays attention. Bill, however is only interested in catching a false vampire from a cereal called “Count CoCoFang”, which Bill believes is an actual vampire. Dib must trick Bill into going to McMeaty’s, but Bill is distracted with catching CoCoFang and doesn’t see Zim moult. After moulting, Zim is fired from his job.
