What do you get when you mix an over confident potato with an equally over confident yam, a jar of peanut butter, a bowl of jello and a fragile egg? A whole lot of mess! In a cozy refrigerator on Maple Street, Clamatoe Potato meets his match in Alakazam Yam. The two challenge eachother to a duel that sets off a food fight you'll never forget.
