Sheriff Callie, Toby, Deputy Peck and Tio Tortuga are out in the desert scouting for pickles when a stampede of kangaroo rats runs through. Callie, Toby and Peck take to higher ground, while Tio stays safe by hiding in his shell. After gathering pickles, the group returns to town, but Peck unwittingly takes along a stowaway - a young kangaroo rat that has nestled in his pack of pickles. Back in Nice and Friendly Corners, Peck quickly discovers that all of his pickles are gone but one, and soon discovers the culprit as well. At first, everyone in town is awed by the kangaroo rat's cuteness, but soon come to regard it as a pest as it zips around town, chewing through ropes and eating through the town's food supplies. Callie becomes frustrated as her increasingly elaborate attempts to catch the slippery critter go awry, not listening to Tio's advice that patience will be key in solving the problem.
