Jeff says that it wasn't annual and it was the first time it happened. Jeff then explained the rules. It was simple and there was a dollar hidden in the yard and whoever found the dollar gets to keep it. Clarence started the dollar hunt with a air horn. It was very loud. The hunt began. Crendle, Blaide, and a bully named Malakevin were searching for the dollar. Sumo came in armed with a leaf-blower. Clarence said Sumo was at the dollar hunt to make obstacles.

Blaide was obsessed with a ceramic frog. Mary was opening the sliding door to tell Clarence that she was going to the hair salon to get her hair done. Clarence held out the twenty dollar bill to get ingredients for a casserole. Clarence saw that it was a one dollar bill. Clarence told Jeff he buried the twenty dollar bill. He then babbled over the megaphone that he really buried the twenty dollar bill. Realizing that Clarence hid the twenty dollar bill, everyone hunting for the money upped searching production. Clarence tried to stop the hunt by ending it early.


Jeff tells Clarence that the hunt can only end when the money is found. Blaide was searching in a tree. Crendle was searching by flowerpots. Malakevin was searching in the water spout. Malakevin got a vent in his arm. Malakevin destroyed the ceramic frog along with other ceramic items with the vent causing Blaide to sob over the broken frog. Clarence and Jeff came to the chicken coop to search.

Clarence, Jeff, and Sumo know they have to get the dollar before the hunters. Jeff tells Clarence to use his brain to go back and to find the location of the money before the hunters. Clarence remembers that the money was by the tree. Clarence babbles that the money was by the tree and everyone searched by the tree. They got alot of holes. Blaide finds the money. He was going to give the money to Clarence but Malakevin took it, split it, and ate it.

Later on, an upset Clarence laments of how he failed to get the 20 dollars he fears that her mother won't make a casserole, she will be fired, he blames himself for being so careless. Feeling sorry for his friend, Jeff asks Clarence to talk to her mother to make a casserole, she has much time, but Clarence rejects it. Sumo needs to make all ingredients together, because he ate the best cake that was made by his brothers, Clarence gets the idea.


They make the casserole with Jeff telling Clarence and Sumo what ingredients they have to put it but then Jeff gets distracted by saying One pound ground maple pork sausage 5 times causing him to sing it as he was saying it for the final 3 times. When it was done Clarence and Sumo put it to the oven where they wait, meanwhile Jeff was taking a shower. When Jeff gets out of the shower to open up the oven it is the same time when Mary came back and she sees the kitchen is a mess, then Jeff gets out the casserole causing Mary to be in disgust. When the book club asks questions Clarence, Jeff, and Sumo present the casserole to the book club. They find it delicious (except for one of them who throws up in a bag). Mary asks Clarence how he did it. Clarence explains his secret. The episode ends with Crendle stuck in a hole asking if anyone can get him out of it.

Minor Characters[]


  • Jeff is seen wearing a skirt while taking out the casserole.
  • The episode reveals that Sumo's brothers once made him a birthday cake out of shaving cream and sponges.
  • This is the only episode when Blaide, Crendle, and Malakevin have a major role.

Cultural References[]

  • During Clarence's "re-tracing his steps in his mind" segment, there is a scene with him in a closet swinging in a big white suit jacket singing "Stop making sense, making sense." This is a reference to the Talking Head's song "Girlfriend is Better" and the concert film "Stop Making Sense."
  • Jazzy Jake, the rabbit with a saxophone is a reference to the Energizer bunny.
  • Malakevin's citation "Andrew Jackson was a cannibal" comes from the "Coffin Handbills" smear campaign against Andrew Jackson, who made many accusations, one of them is cooking natives and eating them.
  • At the start of the casserole-making scene, one of the items in the pantry is Cocoa Balls, a reference to Cocoa Puffs.
  • Look at this mess

    "SU" seen on the fridge.

    As Jeff enters the kitchen, you can briefly see the smeared initials "SU" on the fridge. It is possible that the initials mean "Steven Universe", another Cartoon Network show and the title character of the same name.
  • When Malakevin steals the $20 dollar bill from Blaide's hand he utters the words "it was an inside job", this phrase is heavily used when talking about 9/11 conspiracy theories. Coincidentally, the $20 dollar bill is also subject to these conspiracy theories as when folded in a certain way it creates an image of the Twin Towers covered in flames.
