After eating the banana from a science experiment, Clyde changes from an average elementary school student into a high-energy monkey whenever he gets excited. Usually this causes Clyde a lot of trouble at school. But when someone dressed up like a ghost is seen walking around the hallways, only Clyde's special monkey-powers can save the day!
