Bernie and the Deadbeats
It's tough starting over at a new school and Bernard Mullens has gotten off to a bad start. First he humiliates himself in front of his homeroom class, then he manages to get on the bad side of the seniors. Now he's kept up every night by the world's worst neighbors. Despite their manners, Bernard is thrilled to live in the same apartment complex as a rock n roll group, especially one as talented as the Deadbeats. When the Deadbeats find themselves in need of a pianist less than a month before their big Halloween battle of the bands, Bernard is delighted to be asked to join them. But the Deadbeats are a little different than most rock bands, and Bernard's dream come true is about to become a nightmare. With Halloween fast approaching, Bernard is about to discover that fame can be bad for one's health - and continued survival.
