Plot[edit]

Professor Frink's lab is destroyed and Bart and Frink are arguing whose fault it is. It started during a school trip to the lab where Frink shows his Contactinator, a set-like broadcasting device used in the attempt to contact and communicate with extraterrestrial life forms in the vast reaches of the cosmos. Frink decides to give the class a demonstration. He says into the computer's microphone: "Professor John Frink of Planet Earth Calling all sentient glavin life for friendship and possibly more." When he does not get any answer, the whole class laughs at him.

Suddenly, a big green monster comes into the building calling himself The Glavin. He begins to crush everything in his way. The students and teacher begin to run away and Glavin laughs at them, he says that nobody can stop him. Frink begin to develop a plan but when he sees that he got a new follower on Twitter he takes a break.

In the news report they report that death is raging in Springfield and when going live to Scott Christian, it appears that he is dead. They show Mayor Quimby's reaction on what happening, which is only that Quimby screams; this makes Homer and Marge flee from their house. When Glavin is on his way towards the nuclear power plant Mr. Burns decides to unleash mutants, but Glavin kills them and calls it pathetic. Burns flees with his train, leaving Smithers to die when Glavin begin to destroy the power plant.

Glavin continues to destroy Springfield, but now Frink has started with his plan to stop Glavin. He has built a machine that will stop Glavin but instead it kills his accomplice Grampa Simpson. The police come to help but when they understand what's happening they give up and go to the Kwik-E-Mart. Lisa has now a plan, she gets all the musicians in the Springfield to start playing, thinking it will get Glavin to stop destroying the town. Instead, Glavin kills all the musicians including Lisa. He then proceeds to destroy the inhabitants of Springfield including Marge, Krusty and Homer. Frink is now trying to use Patty and Selma as bait, as in King Kong, to soothe the beast. Just as Glavin is about to kill Bart and Frink, Glavin's father appears. The father apologizes for what Glavin did and says he should be punished. The punishment is to write on the blackboard.

Frink says that around 2067, he probably built the city and cloned all the people again, he discovers that he forgot to turn off the microphone to the Contactinator but says to Bart the chances of another flavin visitation are eight gigatrillion. Just then came a new monster, The Flavin.
