Weeds is a character created by Gary. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Super Specs".


Weeds loves humor. He enjoys joking around and playing pranks on people. His close and possibly best friend Mark seems to be one of the only people who can always tolerate him. Recently he started dating a girl named Marybeth. One day, he promised to take her to the movies. Instead he took her with him to Sardo's Magic Mansion, which really disappointed and annoyed her.

At the Magic Mansion, he took an interest in a powder called The Dust of Denderon. So he read a spell book and started following around with magic. Then he chanted a random incantation and sprinkled some of the dust in the air. He was unaware that it has landed onto a bunch of unique holographic and chrome sunglasses. They gleamed and glow when the magic dust has landed onto them. Completely unaware anything happened, he claimed that it was just random. Now his girlfriend got annoyed. So she began to question his commitment to their relationship, because of his lack of maturity.

Then they're greeted by the magic shopkeeper Sardo. He wants them to leave the shop, if they're not going to buy anything else. He notices the unique sunglasses and puts a pair on. Sardo boasts and bluffs that he has sold hundreds and thousands of them to trick him into buying a pair. Sardo lies to him, saying that they're super specs and that they give the wearer X-ray vision. He was either convinced or he just liked them. So he decides to buy a pair. When his girlfriend tried them on, she claimed that she had just seen a person, dressed in clad dark black tights covering himself from head to toe. He thought that Sardo has her going a little wacko, he gives her a sweet kiss on the cheek goodbye.

The next day at outdoor Lunchtime at school, he fiddled around with more spells. First he played a prank on a girl named Patty. He cast a spell on her yogurt. At first he thought nothing would happen when he saw her eat her yogurt. So he thinks he got ripped off on the magic powder. However after he leaves, he didn't realize that the magic trick has worked. So Patty now had a very high pitched chipmunk voice.

Next he waits around the corner while wearing the super specs. He is waiting for his friend Mark to open his locker. When Mark opens it he gets hit in the face with punching gloves. The classmate asked him what the sunglasses are and Marybeth informs him they're super specs. They are designed to make even him look cool. Then his girlfriend claimed that she just saw a Dark Lady when wearing the super specs.

He thought that she was going all out trying to prank. So he didn't believe her. Then she told him she saw the Dark Lady again. This time standing near a tree. He still didn't believe her. Also he didn't see anything when putting on the specs.

Next he and Mark played basketball. He and Mark made bets that the loser would buy the winner sodas. Then he sprinkled some magic powder on the ball and said an incantation. However he ended up missing the basket, and lost the game. Then on their way out, he threw the ball backwards making an instant basket. He and Mark thought for a moment that it might have been magic, then they dismiss it and say nah!

Soon Marybeth came over looking for him. She looked completely terrified. He was once again playing basketball with Mark. Then she tried to explain to him once again that dark clad people appear whenever she puts on the specs. He and Mark still think she is trying to play a joke. Then suddenly his girlfriend screamed in fear and ran off for her very life. He got with concern and called to her to come back, but she didn't come back.

Then a short time later, he is feed up with the Dust of Denderon. He is about to flush it down a toilet thinking it's a rip-off. Since he doesn't think it works. Then his girlfriend stops him just in time, retrieving the dust. Then she persuades him to listen to her and Sardo. It is explained to him that when he fooled around with magic the other day, he accidentally casted the spell of second sight. It was casted onto all of the of super specs. Which enabling the people who wear them to see beings living on earth from another dimension.

Sardo explained to him that apparently there are always different beings living on earth among humans, but we never see them because they live in alternate dimensions. Also the spell that was cast onto the super specs, also opened a window in his girlfriends house. One that has allowed beings from a parallel universe to crossover and enter the real world. Some of the these living beings are good and some may be evil and the evil ones may attempt to dangerously take over. Therefore the enchanted super specs are the only thing that can enable someone to see what is happening.

Therefore this magical dust really does work!. Also it was the last pouch and Sardo needed it to reverse the spell. So sitting at table he joined his girlfriend and Sardo for a Séance. Sardo then used a crystal ball and said a magical chant. Finally after tossing some of the magic dust the room got dark and the crystal ball began glowing.

Suddenly he could see dozens of dark dressed people standing everywhere. He was now terrified as well, and pointed out that they can be seen even without wearing the specs. So now it keeps getting worse. Sardo however wasn't a very experienced magician as he attempted to finish the spell to close the window and send them all back. The Dark Lady appeared in true self which is a powerful dark phantom. Then the dark intercepted and switched the spell onto his world instead. This was because apparently they tampered with the cosmic seal and two universes can't exist on the same plane. Therefore in order to restore balance the Dark Lady decided to close off their universe.

Then suddenly all seemed to normal in what appeared to be the inside of his girlfriend's house. However it was a girl named Arlene's house and a different Weeds the parallel universe just appeared. The Dark Lady appeared and pulled down her hood. Then in a very sinister deep voice while laughing, the Dark Lady explained that his alternate world's girlfriend also opened a window. but to earth's universe. So luckily got rid of them and the funny thing was they were trying to get rid of them too.

The alternate world version of him asked if he and the other were gone for good. Then the Dark Lady showed his alternate version and his friend, that he, Marybeth and Sardo's world was now trapped in darkness within a crystal ball. Then the Dark Lady said they won't be bothering them anymore. Then He, Marybeth and Sardo all could be heard crying for help!
