When Michael gets sucked down the golf hole by the Looney Tunes into their world Stan eventually finds a way to join hm. After he arrives in their world, he offers his help to Michael to beat the Monstars in a basketball game. At the ultimate game as it was called Stan learns that the Monstars stole the talent from the NBA players who have been acting strange on Earth.

When the Tune Squad decides to play at their best Stan eventually is put in the game due to the injuries of other players. Stan doesn’t last long however as the Monstars flatten him on the court. Discovering that humans have all the abilities of “toons” in the Looney Tunes world Michael stretches his arms while dunking just before time runs out to win the game.

After the game, Michael and Stan return to their own world where Michael is greeted by everyone in the baseball stadium.

Michael and Stan later find all the NBA players devoid of their skills and return their basketball talents back to them.
