Record Deal is part two of the second episode of Season 3, which aired February 8, 2002, following Campsite of Terror.


Shirley is doing spring cleaning in her wagon and is cleaning out an old, dusty trunk looking for things to get rid of. While she is doing that, Eustace is driving down the road in his truck listening to the radio to his favorite musician, Velvet Vic until his radio stops working. As if by fate, Shirley finds a Velvet Vic record and considers it "junk" and throws it out the window. The record hits Eustace in the head, causing him to overturn his truck, but he's full of glee when he finds out that he has a new Velvet Vic record. He takes it back to the farmhouse and plays it and Courage is annoyed by the record. As the record plays, Courage notices that the spirit of Velvet Vic is slowly drifting from the horn of the record player and quickly cuts it off, which causes him to float back into the record player. Eustace doesn't notice this and turns it right back on and yet again, Velvet Vic floats out of the record player but appears at the piano and is actually playing it. While all of this is happening, Muriel is making sandwiches in the kitchen and Eustace is delighted that Velvet Vic is sitting in their living room. As Muriel is serving the sandwiches, she tells Velvet Vic that shes played piano in the past and she demonstrates. As she does this, Velvet Vic stops playing and turns off the record player and Muriel floats into the record player. Velvet Vic smashes the record on the floor and tells Eustace that he's going on the road to do concerts again and Eustace tags along because Velvet Vic tells him that there is tons of money involved. Courage tries to fix the record with tape and attempts to play it on the record player. Muriel comes out shattered-looking and Courage quickly stops the record and Muriel goes back into the record player. Courage decides to take the record to Dr. Vindaloo and he makes a CD copy of it. Courage plays it in a CD player and Muriel comes out with 2 heads, much to Courage's dismay. So he grabs the old record and flees the doctors office. He tells Shirley about the record and she tells him that there is no magic that can fix the record and tells him to go digital. Courage goes back to the farmhouse and makes a copy of the record himself. He decides to tunnel into the concert venue for Velvet Vic's concert to attempt to play the disc, where Shirley is also present...
