Mordecai and Rigby must get Benson to stop watching cat videos.
The guys are watching videos on the internet, Rigby suggests that the guys watch a video called "Blargh.avi" (which is a parody of "GO! BWAH!"), once it has finished, Benson comes in and tells them that he knows about them watching funny videos every Friday, he tells them that they are going to get a huge write-up. Rigby quickly types in a video on the internet, which is a cat video, Benson stops yelling at them and just stares at the screen, amazed at the video. He sits down and starts laughing as Mordecai tells him to not think about any write-ups.
The next day at the morning meeting, Benson is late causing everybody to complain, Benson then comes out of the house, looking tired, he starts telling the guys about cat celebrities, then tells them about his favorite, Curmudgeon Cat, he looks at a video called "Curmudgeon Cat sez hi" on his phone, but it buffers, making Benson drive away to buy a smartphone. Muscle Man tells Benson that they need assignments, so Benson puts Pops in charge, the latter tells them that they are assigned to old-timey dances, he starts dancing. Skips then blames Mordecai and Rigby as they got Benson into the videos, Rigby then tells the guys to wait until Benson stops watching, but then sees that Pops is still dancing, making him and Mordecai decide to check up on him.
At Benson's apartment, Benson is watching another Curmudgeon Cat video on his new smartphone. Benson's cat McFluffin then jumps up to him and then jumps down, knocking over Benson's cereal, Benson tries to pick it up, but struggles, so he picks up the cereal and gets some milk and pours both into his mouth.

- This episode likely took place before an earlier one where Benson was watching a cat video for personal entertainment.
- Pops can be seen doing the Charleston when he's dancing in front of the rest of the workers, during the Morning meeting.
- When Rigby moves the mouse cursor off the screen during the "Blargh.avi" video, the cursor goes over the edge of the screen.
- The motion capture is inacurate as CGI Can not be performed in real life, it can only be seen on a screen, so Mordecai, Benson and Rigby turning into cats doesn't really make sense
