It was closing time at an animation studio and all the staff members were calling
it day. Meanwhile, an animator chooses to carry on with his work. In his drawing,
he sketched a dungeon scene where Beans the Cat encounters a goblin. Weary
for working several hours continuously, the animator decides to take a little
snooze. Before ending the session, he draws a steel barricade between the two
characters. Suddenly, the goblin comes to life and pulls him into the drawing.
The goblin carries the animator away, heading somewhere beyond the picture's
Shocked and terrified, the animator tries in vain to break out of the goblin's
grasp. He was then brought into a mystic chamber where stone portraits of

back, Beans spills lubricant between the room's entrance and the pit. The monsters slide on the lubricant mess and fall into

the drawing on his desk unchanged. Not wanting to recall his experience, the animator edits out the goblin and the steel
barricade, leaving only Beans in the picture. As a compliment to his little friend, he draws a platter with gelatin on top for
Beans to eat.
