Monkey See, Camping Doo is the test pilot of Camp Lazlo created for Cartoon Network by Joe Murray in 2004. This had the characters having their original personalities. This episode had never aired since it develops some changes to the characters.
The Jelly Bean Cabin are sad because Leonard Lumpus, later named Algonquin, is sad for his failure of catching the biggest fish. They need some advice about catching fish from the nurse and the deacon but they asked questions of their own. They realize that they have to do it themselves by stealing Lumpus's super-ship. When Lumpus's ship ran out of fuel, they uses a canoe and they tricked the Jellies that they want him to help him by not talking. When Lumpus is getting eating by a shark, they realize that they must help him and got him out of the card and caught mighty giganto fish.
- The episode never aired, but was reworked as "Gone Fishin' (Sort Of)", which became the pilot instead.
- This was another pilot created for Cartoon Network that was never aired and never found, much like the 2003 pilot episode of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, although that show's pilot can be found as a preview on various Cartoon Network VHS tapes and DVDs from late 2003 to early-mid-2004.
- However, the pilot episode of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi was finally found in 2018, but the pilot episode of Camp Lazlo still wasn't found.
- Joe Murray was asked about the pilot, and replied with this response: “The pilot was remade into a full episode with Lumpus getting eaten by a lake monster. I’m not sure where the original version is. Somewhere in the archives of Cartoon Network.”
