The episode begins with a shot of Mushroom City at night, where a bright object can be seen crashing into a hillside. Toad is awoken by the explosion and goes to investigate. He discovers that the object is a Smash Ball that has been slightly broken. Suddenly, a rainbow-colored beam of light shoots out from the Smash Ball. Toad panics and runs back to the cozy shelter of his room. As the theme song plays, the transition from night to day begins as the Mario Bros. awake in their home.
[Open to Mushroom City in the late night; a clock reads 11:25 PM. We see a bright object, currently unknown to the viewer, soaring through the sky. Cut to a shot of Toad snoring away under the covers]
TOAD: *snoring* Aahhh...Yoshi Island. *snoring* Yeahhh egg omelet....*snoring*
[Explosion is heard outside, shaking Toad awake. Some knick-knacks (one depicting Mario) fall off a shelf]
TOAD: Gah! What time is it?? *glances at his clock, which reads midnight* Well, this had better be worth it.
