Monster High: Escape from Skull Shores

Synopsis: It's officially Spring Break at Monster High, and Lagoona takes her gilfriends across the sea to the Great Barrier Reef, but they are ship wrecked and end up on a mysterious skull shaped island. Here they enjoy the local hospitality until they realize that they are being used by a slippery showman named Farnum to lure the rarest, most mysterious monster of them all, "the Beast" into a trap. Frankie is taken by the Beast but tables turn and she ends up rescuing him and returning with him to Monster High. The story goes to high voltage when they realize that Frankie has inadvertently led Farnum to the location of the greatest gathering of monsters anywhere...Monster High.

- Whoa!


- Look out!

Everyone, move!



- Whoa!



Attention, students

of Monster High!

When the bell tolls three,

it will be time for

spring break!

Next time put some muscle into it!

Oh, wait, you can't!

Hey, Howleen. Girls can't throw!

Not a good night to

make fun of me, Heath.





Ghoulia's right. Isn't

this carnival, like,

the perfect way to

kick off spring break?

Totes! Everyone fanging

out, having fun.

Even Headmistress Bloodgood

is getting into it.

If you do all your homework,

I see an "A" in your future.

Oh! Hilarious. That's awesome.

I'm so charged up for our big trip.

Have you packed yet?

- I have nine full suitcases.

And that's just for shoes!

No, Lagoona hasn't told Gil yet.

She wants it to be a surprise!

Is Spectra coming?

- Sorry, ghouls, I can't make it.

My family is taking me to see

some of their old haunts.

Should make for some great

ghost stories for my blog.

Hey, won this for you!

- Oh, Clawd.

So sweet.

- I'm gonna go win more!


Let's go find Lagoona and Gil.



Gil, remember how you said you didn't

have anywhere to go for spring break?

Well, I've got a

surprise for you, mate!

Oh, yeah? I love surprises.

My folks are sending a boat to take

all of us to the Great Barrier Reef!

You'll finally get to meet them!

Meet your parents?


Whoa... Whoa!

Hey, this is fun. Check me out!

Deuce, cheap carnival prizes

don't win themselves.


Happy now?

We need more!

It's a maze, I could

get lost in there.

Oh, the horror! The horror!

- I know!

Even wax statues of normies

look stupid! They're so weird!

Talk about freaks!

- Manny Taur!

You can't call someone a freak

just because they're different!

Now, go apologize.

To the statues?


- Okay, okay!



Aw, Clawd.


So, y'all are headin' to

the Great Barrier Reef?

Awesome, right?

- You bet.

The boat's picking us up at the

catacombs docks tomorrow morning.

Hoo-wee! That sounds like a hoot.

Sorry, I can't join you.

I'm heading to the music

festival in Squalor's Holler.

I'd love to go with you guys, too,

but Deuce and I are heading

to an X-Scream sports camp.

Seven days of shreddin', dunkin',

splashin' and crashin'! Aw, yeah!

Yo, Gil, Great Barrier Reef?

You must be pumped!

Yeah. Whoo-hoo.

Gil's afraid of meeting my folks.

- Oh, right.

Freshwater, saltwater.

I told him no one cares anymore.

Easy for you to say, you're from

the sea. They're gonna hate me.

That's not true. It'll be fun.

Oh, no. I'm sorry, mate.

No biggie. I borrowed that stuff

from my big sister, Nefera, anyway.


- Amazing.

This is the life, huh, ghouls?


- Best spring break ever.

Even though I'm used to

the royal treatment,

this is truly something special.

You're gonna love the

Great Barrier Reef, Gil.

It's the most beautiful

place in the world.

I just wish it wasn't

full of sea creatures.

Gil, you're starting to

sound like your parents.

"Ooh, yeah! A thousand

lakes. No salt in my water!"

I'm sorry, but the ocean is a

scary place for someone like me.

What are you so afraid of?

- Everything!

There's all sorts of scary fish

and monsters that would just love to get

their flippers on a freshwater guy like me.

Plus, the normies have

polluted it so much

that you can't even

see three feet down!

Who knows what lies beneath?

Exactly. You don't know.

Which is why you shouldn't

judge it before you see it.

What's that?

It's an island chain, mate.

- Then why is it moving?

Oh, no! Somebody released a kraken!

Uh, what was that you were

saying about the sea?

"Perfectly safe"?

Where is it? Where did I put...

Kipling! Kipling!

Yes, sir, Mr. Farnum, sir.

Where's my trading route map?

I can't find anything in this mess!


Yes! Calamity Island.

We can sell them gryphon tongues.

I convinced them that

they grant immortality.

But we haven't got any

gryphon tongue left, sir.

We already sold everything

that wasn't nailed down, sir.

Our situation is dire,

Kipling. We're dead broke.


Save us!

- Over here! Please help us!

Over here!

- Please, help us!

Over here!

- Help! Help!

Eureka! Oh, Kipling, look at them.

Glorious, amazing,

hideous monsters.

Almost as hideous as you.

That they are, sir.

- This is it!

The public will pay top dollar to

gaze upon such hideous monstrosities.

We're back in business!

You mean our old freak show, sir?

That's right, Kipling!

Bartelby Farnum's Traveling

Freak Show and Grotesquery!

I think it's time to

invite them aboard.

They see us! Yes!

We are saved! Oh, boy!

Thanks so much, mate!

- You saved us!

It's nothing.

- On the contrary,

it is our distinct pleasure having

you aboard our humble watercraft.

Bartelby Farnum, at your service.

What an interesting boat.

What do you do?

What do I do?

The better question

is, what don't I do?

I sell things, I buy things,

I buy things and sell them.

I sell 'em and buy 'em back.

I find things that need finding,

I hide things that need

hiding and vicey versy.

Got a problem? I can fix it.

Torn coat? I can mend it.

I do what needs to be done,

I say what needs to be said.

All for a nominal fee of course.

But mostly, I entertain.

Ooh! Wow!

That's amazing.

Mr. Farnum? Do you think you could

drop us off at the Great Barrier Reef?

If it's not too far
