Plot summary

Fanboy (voiced by David Hornsby) and his best friend Chum Chum (voiced by Nika Futterman) meet the new kid, Kyle (voiced by Jamie Kennedy), who was recently expelled from Milkweed Academy for Wizards. The boys pretend to be wizards like Kyle, but he gets annoyed by them and tries to destroy them.

Full recap

Fanboy and Chum Chum are in their regular class until a new kid at their school shows up. His name is Kyle, but no one catches his attention yet. After he arrives, Kyle sits on his own up front, but Fanboy and Chum Chum scoot up next to him. They quickly find Kyle as a pretend wizard, despite the fact he really is one. So, Fanboy pretends to be one named "Wizboy", and Chum Chum pretends to be his assistant. Kyle soon finds that Fanboy and Chum Chum are acting like wizards, and is annoyed. At lunch, they annoy him more by pretending to levitate ketchup. Kyle shows them real levitation, surprising them, but accidentally descends into a lunch tray, which causes him to get hurt by Lupe, one of the students. So, Kyle eventually challenges Fanboy to a "wizard-off". During that, Fanboy performs a "removed finger" trick, causing a dumbstruck Chum Chum to faint to the ground. Fanboy gives Chum Chum an Ice Monster Bun Bun to wake him up, but he sticks himself to Fanboy's head, and they hop around, madly. For Kyle, he thinks this is a target, and he is ready to win. But before he was going to destroy Fanboy he eventually is taken by a griffin, and flies away on it. Fanboy and Chum Chum do not see this, thinking he left, and they walk home together. The episode ends with Fanboy saying they will play wizard with Kyle all day tomorrow, and Kyle can be heard in the distance, saying "No, I won't!"
