Tom's big brother gets a chemistry set and decides to experiment on a goldfish named Frankie. Even though tom tries to stop him, his brother dips the fish in toxic green gunk. It's dying. Tom has to save the fish so he zaps it with a battery to bring it back to life. It works, but Frankie isn't the same fish. He's bigger. He's a little strange looking. And now he has hypnotic powers. When Tom's big brother realizes this, he hatches an evil plan to use Frankie's new powers. Tom has to stop his brother before it's too late.
