Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Scaredy is afraid of everything... until he gets close to a percussion instrument. Then he's the "Little Bat with the Big Beat". Then Ruby and Skull Boy accidentally cause Scaredy to think there's something wrong with him for not being afraid to play the drums. Of course, when he's convinced he's needed behind the drums, he becomes a drumming machine, driving everyone batty.
