Bobby's tale of Zeke the Custodian, a long-dead nose-less specter who haunts Anawanna, haunts campers, who dread his return with his accursed plunger used to suck embarrassing secrets out of their heads. Disturbed by nightmares, Michael and Dina challenge Bobby to prove his fearlessness by spending the night on the very spot where Zeke died. This, they think, will be everyone's chance to get back at Bobby for all his bullying, but ever-wary Bobby not only anticipates their coming but lays in wait with a booby trapped forest.

Don't touch the haunted Plunger!!!!
11 September 2010 | by (United States,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This episode has always been stuck in my head. I recently downloaded it for a Halloween DVD mix. Budnick tells the other campers a ghost story about a plumber who was killed and is coming back to get the other children Kids, he also tells them that the only things that the police found after zekes explosive death was his upper lip and his old plunger and that Zeke comes back because hes stil looking for his plunger. The kids start having nightmares and are freaked out. This was a pretty creepy episode when I was kid and every kid that likes scary themed shows should see this one. Anyway i may go as Zeke for Halloween even though nobody will know my costume. So find this episode and watch it asap. Peace Don't let Zeke get ya.
