Scene Nils has been trying to build some new shelves for the last two hours and Rumpel is enjoying himself since Nils keeps failing. Rumpel notices something that passes behind Nils, and asks Nils if he saw what it was. Nils tells Rumpel to keep quiet, as he is trying to concentrate. Then suddenly a hare jumps out and scares Nils. It turns out to be Armin, a professional scarer. Rumpel are not impressed his great aunt Grautschhilda could do a better job. They decide to find out who can scare the best.
Scene Armin begins to sing a song about scaring while trying out a vampire costume. Rumpel joins in as he prepares a new scaring machine.
Nils has finished the shelves, but is a bit worried about the sudden silence, so he decides to check up on Rumpel.

Scene Rumpel proudly shows Nils his new invention, the Grouch-scaring-machine, and gives him a rundown of what it does. First he will get Armin to sit on a whoopee cushion that has been modified with a small trumpet. The sound will make him jump up and pull the nearby rope, which will open a stinky pot. The smell will get Armin confused, and he will get entangled in a nearby net, which will release a bucket of goo that will pour down on him. Nils is not sure it will work, since there would not be a reason to sit on the whoopee cushion. Then Armin sneaks up on Nils and scares him. Nils gets so scared that he sits on the whoopee cushion and releases the various steps in Rumpel's new invention.
Armin is impressed by Rumpel's machine, and Rumpel compliments Armin for his choice of costume. Rumpel asks Armin if he has any more horrible costumes, and they go off to take a look. Nils gives up and once again sits on the whoopee cushion ,and the sound scares both Rumpel and Armin as they pass the finished shelves, and they get so scared that they knock over the shelves.
