When Billy and Mandy are utterly bored, Grim takes them to Underworld's "Circus of Fear". There, the ringleader, Dr. Fear, notices Billy and Mandy, and tries to recruit them into the circus to attract customers, who would pay to see real, live humans. After they go back home, Dr. Fear captures the two kids, and Grim has to get them back. During the show, Mandy breaks free and in a strange twist of the story, she reveals that the beastmaster, Clortho, is actually Dr. Fear, who in turn is just an earthworm, leaving Billy confused.
