The Incredible Shrinking Mandy
When Billy's dad Harold drives Billy, Mandy, and Grim to the hamburger restaurant, they somehow end up in Mexico. There, the people are celebrating Dia de los Muertos, but local kids say it may be the last celebration ever, because Del Uglio, a masked and ugly luchador, is set on stealing the "Golden Nose of Chipotle", a prehispanic relic on which the festivity is based. To get to the nose, Del Uglio has one half of the map, while the other half is held by his lost twin brother, who oddly enough, turns out to be Billy. In the end, Grim defeats Del Uglio, but it is Mandy who keeps the golden nose for herself, which makes her rich.
