A Dumb Wish is the second segment of the sixth episode of Grim & Evil.


While "spring cleaning" one day in November, Billy discovers an old lamp in Grim's old trunk. When he gives it a rub, he releases the "curse" Grim had warned them about: his mother! Because she has been released from the lamp, Grim's mother agrees to grant them one wish each. Billy wastes his wish by wishing to know what to wish for. Grim never gets to make his wish because Mandy wishes he and Billy would "shut up", resulting in literally zipping their lips. So Mandy decides to make her wish to whoever makes her the happiest. At last she makes a wish that each and every human in this world disappear. This however, unfortunately, was a HUGE mistake, as she went outside to notice that the Earth stood still with nobody outside, as she heads back inside, alone in the world forever, she turns of the TV, gives this a second thought, and realizes with a sneaky smile, "Perfect."
