Leela is invited by the Cookieville Minimum-Security Orphanarium for the Public Domain Story Time. Since the children ate the books, she is forced to make up a story on her own, but as the kids say - the story is bad. Expecting from herself to come up with a better story, and getting no quiet time from her crew mates, she takes the Planet Express ship to a secret destination to concentrate on her writing. She returns to the Orphanarium with a better story just as Abner Doubledeal, CEO of the TV station Tickleodeon, visits the kids to pitch new television shows. This time the little ones are fascinated by her new story called "Rumbledy-Hump", which prompts Doubledeal to persuade Leela into writing an educational children's television series based on "The Humplings". After agreeing to the deal Leela realizes she has some real "unimaginative" problems.
