Mean Mrs. Green is forcing everyone to run in the school election, but everyone just wants to run for their lives! YIKES!
Hubie is running for president against Doris. Hubie doesn't think he stands a chance against Doris and the free ice cream that's she's giving away to voters. Mix that in with the fact that he has to do lots of crazy stuff like shaking Coach Kong's paw and Mrs. Green's claw, and kissing a bunch of babies to stay in the presidential race. Hubie's chances look slim, but in the end, he wins by being the candidate who stands for something - not just on top of something! HA!
