The Mine Guy
While Aaron is relaxing in the tree branch, Arnold comes and keeps telling Aaron to press his button. Aaron doesn't understand, so Arnold tries tries to demonstarte, by pressing the button causing an explosion.
The Mine Guy 2
Arnold is bored because he haven't exploded anything in weeks. So, Caterphiller comes and helps him. To help, he gave him Boombird. Arnold imagines that destruction and explosion and detonation with the Boombird would be fun, so he takes him. And after Aaron thinks that everything's back to normal, Arnold lights up Boombird's fuse and says "they don't call me The Mine Guy for nothing!", causing an explosion.
The Mine Guy 3: Game Show
Arnold, Aaron, Caterphiller, and Boombird (whose team name is "The Detonation Dudes") participate in a game show under the name of "Cash-O-Rama". They are in last place with $0 (thanks to Arnold constantly putting "lighter fluid and nuclear gases" for every one of their questions), with "The MattBoo Team" (MattBoo, MattBomb, and MattGoomb, who are so far the lead team) and "The Y-Guys" (Y-Guy, Mango and Gum) ahead of them. Then a miracle happens, a difficult math problem (364,500 divided by 5) is asked, and "The MattBoo Team" and "The Y-Guys" get the question wrong, but Caterphiller gets it right, putting "The Detonation Dudes" in the lead. Arnold and Aaron believe Caterphiller is their chance to win due to his high intelligence. And then, for every question afterwards Caterphiller answers and gets them in the lead. For the final question, either "The MattBoo Team" or "The Detonation Dudes" will answer the question right (2 + 2) to win $1,000,000. However, with Caterphiller having brain damage and amnesia (due to being small enough to smash himself to the answer button), Arnold has to answer. He answers "4" and gets it wrong, losing to "The MattBoo Team"'s response ("lighter fluid and nuclear gases"). "The MattBoo Team" and "The Y-Guys" (additionally) win the $1,000,000 prize and "The Detonation Dudes" lose and don't get any money at all. Aaron says the expression "I just wish we can just explode our depressions away", and Arnold, literally not taking as an expression, presses his button causing an explosion.
- Ironically, Gum and MattGoomb (despite their guest appearences in the third episode) do not speak at all.
