Plot

A misguided Mad Doctor (Trace Beaulieu) misses one of his oldest and deadest friends (Frank Conniff). Goaded by the demands of the children in the neighborhood, and assisted by his ghoulish, yet whimsical butler (Gruber), he sets out to reboot his old pal and bring him back to life - in a song.
