|“||This is a mere yogurt. But place it on a pedestal and add a signature, and it becomes art!||”|
Kaeloo is painting a picture of Quack Quack, while Stumpy is sitting nearby playing video games as usual. Kaeloo finishes her painting, and Quack Quack sits down for a break when Stumpy comes up and asks to see the painting. He thinks it's amazing, and he asks if he can make art as well.
Kaeloo tells him he can, as long as he follows the rules of art. Stumpy decides to express his insanity through art and leaves. Kaeloo calls Quack Quack back for another painting, and her painting (which looks like it was done by a very young child) is revealed to the audience.
As Kaeloo paints her next painting, Mr. Cat walks by and makes fun of it, which she decides to ignore. Mr. Cat then sees Stumpy's painting, which turns out to look great - and it's a picture of a squirrel destroying things with a chainsaw. Mr. Cat praises the painting, and says he finds it emotional.
He decides to express his emotions by trying to attack Quack Quack with a chainsaw, but Kaeloo transforms and stops him. He then claims that he was just dancing with the chainsaw. He tells her how amazing Stumpy's artwork is, and she believes he is making fun of him, but he reveals that he actually does find it emotional. Kaeloo says that it doesn't conform to the rules of art, but they accuse her of being jealous. Quack Quack comes by and gives his approval of Stumpy's art, and Mr. Cat decides to give the others a quick lesson on contemporary art.
He takes a yogurt, and says that if he puts it on a pedestal and adds a signature, it becomes art. Stumpy then tries to fight Quack Quack for his yogurts before Mr. Cat tells him that that was just an example, and he can do it with any object. Stumpy brings in a soda can with knives stuck in it, and asks if that can be considered art. Mr. Cat decides that it looks good, and he tricks Stumpy into signing a contract that gives him only 5% of the proceeds when the art is sold, with the rest of the money going to the cat. Quack Quack walks in with a very realistic sculpture of Mr. Cat's head, and Mr. Cat attempts to smash it with a mallet, but misses and hits Quack Quack's head.
Kaeloo walks through an exhibition of "art", which is a bunch of random objects. When she finds that one of the objects is Quack Quack, with the mallet still on his head, she tells Mr. Cat that none of it is actually art. Mr. Cat ignores her, however, as he is on the phone with the curator of the Smileyland art museum. Upon hearing him ask for finger food and pole dancers for the opening night, Kaeloo starts to get angry. She transforms and tries to hit him with the mallet from his art exhibition, but she cannot since Quack Quack is stuck to it.
Meanwhile, Stumpy comes up with an idea for a "performance" of art: sitting on a toilet while holding up a piece of paper with his signature on it. Mr. Cat then shoots Quack Quack's head off with a bazooka, since artists express pain. Stumpy decides to try this out for himself, and shoots off his own head with a bazooka.
Kaeloo starts crying over his demise, but Mr. Cat doesn't care at all, thinking what a great story it will make for the media. Kaeloo transforms and chases after him, and manages to catch him. Quack Quack picks up a nearby rock and carves it into an exact replica of Stumpy's head. He then performs a magic spell on it and makes it come to life. Stumpy then says that auctions for the "art" start at 1 million dollars.
Mr. Cat, having been crushed into the shape of a block, complains about how terrible this "art" is, while Kaeloo helps Stumpy make his art better. She then walks up to Quack Quack, who is making a painting showing how he sees Mr. Cat. Kaeloo says that the painting does a very good job of showing all the confusion in Mr. Cat's tormented soul.
