No one believes in ghosts

After a game of hide and seek, Baby Rowlf tells the other babies about a scary old movie he saw, involving ghosts and secret passages. When Rowlf disappears during naptime, the other kids go looking for him all over the house. Fozzie is frightened since the house is dark and spooky, and the storm outside doesn't help. As they search for Rowlf, Baby Animal keeps appearing and disappearing, having supposedly found a secret passage. At one point, the babies imagine themselves held hostage by Bela Lugosi (via clips from White Zombie and Ghosts on the Loose with the East Side Kids).

It turns out that Animal discovered an old dumbwaiter and was traveling up and down in it, and Rowlf was helping Nanny with the housework because he felt uneasy talking about the movie to the tots.

Clips from another East Side Kids movie, Boys of the City (1940), and The Little Rascals short Shivering Spooks (1926) are also used.
