Plot Summary

Casey, Allstar, and Junior are helping Corky move a giant airfish to the top of his submarine. Smallstar sees this, and decides to go inside the sub. She thinks everyone's going for a ride, so she presses the blue button, which closes the hatch. Allstar and Corky hear all the commotion, so they try to let her out, but she can't hear them. She presses the red button, causing the airfish to expand, and the sub to fly all the way into the "Boo Lagoon," which is the home of Skull Castle. Casey decides to help Corky find her, and so does a scared Allstar. She bribes Junior into going by telling him there might be treasure in Skull Castle, and so he does.

-five percent for him, and five percent of each of them. They look around Skull Castle to find the sub, at least until Percy the ghost shows up. Everything becomes chaotic as they run from him, making Junior increase the percentage of the treasure he should get to ninety-five percent.

Percy reveals himself to be a good ghost, and that the snorks are his first company he's had in 794 years. He apologizes for scaring them, but still needs their help. This is because the evil snork pirate Captain Dweeb stole his true love Penelope on their wedding day, and he really wants her back. Captain Dweeb had also stolen his entire family's treasure, plus his allergy medicine. The key needed to free him from his chains is blocked by the sub. Soon enough, they get Smallstar out of there and get her home. Junior then decides he gets one hundred percent of the treasure, and nobody else gets anything. Percy is freed and then they go off to help save Penelope.

They go onto Captain Dweeb's pirate ship/hideout. Junior goes off in a different direction, where he finds a room full of gold. Meanwhile, the others hide in an empty treasure chest, while Captain Dweeb has Penelope locked in a cage, forcing her to marry him. Percy's sneezing makes the chest open, and Captain Dweeb closes in response. Thankfully, Junior carrying all the treasure in a bag causes the ceiling to clollapse. All the gold lands on top of the pirate, so Casey ties him up and puts him in the cage. Percy hides the key, and then he and Penelope reunite. Soon, they get married and live happily ever after.
