Mona tries to scare the bug but Nana tells her to leave it alone. They head over to Mr.Wooka's, hoping that he knows what kind of bug it is. Wooka looks at the bug and tells them it is a harmless praying mantis. Mona tries to scare the bug but Mr. Wooka tells her not to because the bug is already scared because he is very small and Mona is much bigger, and besides that, he is friendly. They head over to Mr. Wooka's yard to watch the puppet show. Puppet Show: Two Monsters are in a boxing ring. They are supposed to be having a boxing match, but they are scared of each other, so neither of them can start. They realize that they are both scared of each other, and note that there isn't anything to be scared of after all, and they begin the match. Mona and Russell go and look at the bug and Mona tells Russell to be nice. Later on in the living room, Mona hears a noise coming from the closet. She tries to see what it is, but the closet is dark. She doesn't like the dark. Suddenly Russell comes running out of the closet with Nana's shoe in his mouth. Mona chases him into the living room, and struggles to get Nana's shoe from him. Finally Russell pulls the shoe from Mona's grip, and hides under the couch. Mona is scared because it is dark under the couch. She calls for Nana, and Nana struggles to get the shoe free from Russell. She succeeds, and Mona tells Nana that she is afraid of the dark in the closet. Nana shows Mona there is nothing to be afraid of. Mona and Nana try to put the shoe back in the closet together, but Mona is still too scared. Nana asks Mona if there is anything that could help to make her brave. Mona tells Nana her purple monster costume would help.
