Fundemonium is the third episode of Season 3. It is the sequel to Return of the Nanobots.
After the car company, Hugh works for decides to close down and leave for good because everyone has a car now, the Neutrons have faced with the awful prospect of moving. To stay in Retroville, Jimmy finds a newspaper help-wanted ad for inventing new toys. A while later, Hugh becomes a toy inventor and starts creating a hybrid doll called Baby Quackers, but the remote is makeshift and doesn't budge. So Jimmy went down to his lab and updated Baby Quackers with sleek arms, renaming it Baby Quackers 3000. Even Jimmy invented a better remote, which gives it the ability to walk, destroy stuff with karate moves, and to have state-of-the-art wee-wee transistors.
Meanwhile, Carl and Sheen are devastated about losing Jimmy and try to replace him with Bolbi and suffer from boredom. Hugh shows everyone at his new job for Baby Quackers 9000, and it did the same things the toy does, much to the astonishment to his peers. So when Hugh returns home, he announced himself as assistant vice junior toy inventor and Krelman Toy. Hugh began to invent more and more toys, such as a remote-controlled mallard plane, a hydraulic high-jumping duck Pogo stick, and finally, a green tank with a dirty princess head turret toy called The Malibu Death Machine.
After so many days, Jimmy began to feel so sleepy that he decides to take a nap. So when Hugh arrives into Jimmy's lab, he sees Jimmy still sleeping, then he finds the toy, he mistakes Jimmy's Nanobots for talking batteries, and they escape to wreak havoc on Retroville. Ultimately, Jimmy reunites with Carl and Sheen to stop the Nanobots. Thinking quickly, Jimmy reprograms the Baby Quackers 9000's remote and fires at The Malibu Death Machine, causing the pee from Baby Quackers to explode out of the massive toy, then it shrinks down to normal size.
Carl and Sheen praise Jimmy's bravery; however, they are still sad Jimmy has to move. As they are walking in front of Jimmy's house, Hugh appears. He announces that the Malibu Death Machine was on a featured in a newspaper article and was a PR success so much that the toy company offered him a corporate position in New York. Feeling that the move is an inevitable when Jimmy says his goodbyes until Hugh mentions he down the position and the Neutron's are remaining in Retroville. Jimmy questions on what his dad will do and finds out that Mallard Motors is back in business since everyone's car was destroyed.
