Through a bizarre disaster (nothing unusual for our boy blunder), Wally accidentally fries the circuits of Ol' Betsy, his laptop computer.
Suddenly, whatever he types turns into reality. . . Including Wally becoming the city's Chief of Police, and finally the Governor of the state. It's 11:59, New Year's Eve, when our hero tries retyping the truth into his computer - a commendable effort which, unfortunately, manages to short out every computer in the world! By midnight, the entire universe has credited Wally's mishap to the MILLENNIUM BUG! Panic, chaos and hilarity start the new century, thanks to our beloved Wally.

Unfortunately, Fantasmo World will never be the same, as in typical McDoogle Mayhem, Wally discovers the truth and learns who the real hero in his life is.
Will he be able to avoid catastrophe and chaos? Probably not.
Just as our hero goes for the gold, he finds himself on a wild ride atop a misguided torpedo and realizes the true cost of greed.
