All Karl wants to do is make the Junior Club Werewolves team. But when tryouts turn into a monster letdown, Karl decides to put together a squad made up of other creatures who didn't make their own teams. A vampire, a zombie, a blob, and others all decide to play together. With their first game coming up and almost no time to practice, this group of misfits must use the qualities that make them special to overcome the odds and win.

\t\"Hang on,\" Karl said. \"I'm not a loser.\"
\tPatsy stopped. \"Sorry,\" she said. \"I didn't mean just you. None of us made our teams.\"
\t\"I'm going to change that,\" Karl said. \"I'm going to show everyone that I should be a JC Werewolf!\"
\t\"But they didn't want you on their team,\" Dennis said.
\tKarl looked at the other monsters and got an idea. \"We can start our own team!\""
