Bean Mattson

Bean is a character in the All Grown Up episode "Interview With a Campfire" who later turns out to be a ghost.

Haunting Camp Everwood[]

It is unknown where Bean is originally from but is known he was a member of the Everwood Settlers, who were migrating west in the late 1800s. In 1871, three of the settlers disappeared one night when they went to gather food and supplies. Unwilling to leave without their friends, the remaining settlers decided to permanently settle near man-shaped Pioneer Rock.

Weeks later, winter was approaching and the missing settlers still had not returned. Suddenly, their horse and covered wagon returned, but the missing three were nowhere to be found. Bean, along with the other settlers died that winter due to harsh conditions and lack of supplies.

Eventually, the woods near Pioneer Rock and Camp Everwood became haunted by Bean's ghost after the death of him and his friends. It's a big possibility that Bean's spirit remained at the camp to continue looking for the missing settlers. 130 years later in 2001, Bean becomes acquainted with Tommy Pickles and his friends, who visit Camp Everwood for the summer. Bean becomes especially good friends with Tommy's little brother Dil. Tommy and his friends (Chuckie, Phil, Lil and Kimi) are told the story about the settlers who went missing and what it has caused since they passed. They all become suspicious of the camp's conditions such as sleeping in freezing cabins (due to Bean's presence at the camp) and encountering a horse-covered wagon similar to the one that settlers used. Inspired to make a scary movie, Tommy decides to solve the mystery of the missing settlers and convince his friends to join him. Bean decides to join them as their guide (believing they could help him find out what happened to his missing friends). Tommy and his friends are then joined by their parents (Stu, Charlotte and Howard) who suddenly disappear after reaching Pioneer Rock. Chuckie discovers a journal in a tree hole that belonged to one of the settlers that disappeared. The last entry is never finished due to the writer freezing in the conditions. Their search leads them to an old underground mine which Chuckie concludes was used during the gold rush and is under the entire forest; also that everyone who disappeared must have simply fell into the mineshaft. The gang find a trapped entrance and unblock it. Inside, they find not only their missing parents, but the remains of the three missing settlers. Bean is happy that he finds his missing friends after all these years. A photo of the settlers slips out of the old journal and when Dil picks it up, he notices that Bean is in the picture also and reveals it to his friends, his brother, and their parents. Bean's eyes then glow from red to white as he silently exits the cave. They discover that Bean is a ghost. The gang scream in fear that they have been traveling with a ghost and notice that he has vanished. With summer camp over, the gang returns home while talking about how their cabin was not freezing this morning, meaning that with the mystery solved, Bean's ghost has finally departed. After watching the footage of their adventure, an unfilmed clip appears on the T.V., with Bean's spirit being under the "zombie " moon. His eyes glow red and tells the viewers: "Don't ever got no brain or nothing". The clip ends with Tommy and friends screaming in fear, shocked at what Bean really is.
