Sharkboy and Lavagirl save some children from an outofcontrol roller coaster. Then with Max, they confront Mr. Electric, who quickly drops them in a part of Planet Drool called the Dream Graveyard, where some of Maxs dreams have been dumped. They find Tobor voiced by George Lopez, a robot toy that was never finished being built by Max, but offers them a lift to other parts of the planet in which they ride on his eyes and mouth since he cant move the rest of his body parts. Whilst on the journey, the three form a friendship but they face hardships, such as Sharkboys anger for the oceans being frozen over, and Lavagirls desperation to find her true purpose on Planet Drool. They are pursued by Mr. Electric and his plughounds across the planet. They plan to visit the Ice Princess and obtain the Crystal Heart, which can freeze time, giving them enough time to get to the center of Planet Drool and fix the dreamworld using Maxs daydreaming. However, they are captured by Mr. Electric and delivered to Linuss Planet Drool incarnation Minus, who has altered the dreamworld with Maxs own Dream Journal and traps the three in a cage. Sharkboy gets annoyed by Lalas and has a shark frenzy, destroying the cage. Max retrieves the Dream Journal from Minus while he is sleeping, after the three escape. Max informs Sharkboy that his father is alive in his book, but when Lavagirl wishes to find out what it says about her true identity, she burns the book to ash.

She hands over the Crystal Heart, but they find they are too late to stop the corruption since the ice princess is the only one who can use the Crystal Hearts power and she cannot leave her home.
