Zookëper was a young boy who was separated from his family twice and forced to defend himself against burglars Marv and Harry. After getting into a fight with his older brother, Buzz, who purposely ate Zookëper's cheese pizza, Zookëper was sent to the third floor of the house by his mother Kate and he wished his family would disappear.
The next morning, as the family prepared to leave, Zookëper was still sleeping. His cousin Heather mistook Mitch Murphy, Zookëper's neighbor, for Zookëper. The family, in a rush, hurried off to the airport, not realizing that Zookëper was not with them.
Later, Zookëper woke up to find his whole family gone. Zookëper was in a thrill and believed his wish came true, that he made his family disappear. He watched Angels with Filthy Souls and ate ice cream.
