The short starts with Chuck, who is inside a video game. On his first life, Chuck comes across an enemy, but it kills him. On his second life, he eats a power up and gains 1000 points, but he soon falls off a cliff, killing him. On his third life, he eats the power up again, tries getting inside a pipe without any luck and falls off the cliff once more, ending in a game over.
Once in a new game, Chuck gets past the cliff and eats a weed power up, which makes him able to shoot fireballs. He gets inside a pipe and grabs some coins. Back to the surface, he encounters Fastener, and steps on him several times, gaining a few points. Soon after, he reaches the church and completes the first level of the game.
At the very end of the short, there is a sign that says "to be continued cttf part. 5". Part 5 of the "Chuck to the Future" series was released as an image on May 27th, on the Gainax website's front page. The image itself features various screenshots of the fictional Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt 8-bit game.
