Badgerclops is tired of his responsibilities at Sheriff’s HQ, so he joins the Sky Pirates.
The episode begins with Badgerclops playing a video game and neglecting his chores, which visibly irritates Mao Mao because all he wanted Badgerclops to do is: fix the Aero-cycle, and do the grocery shopping, which is only two
things he has to do. Badgerclops is visibly hurt by his "demands" and is only pushed off the edge when Mao Mao calls him "lazybones", which leads to Badgerclops leaving the house to vent by the lake.
After the Sky Pirates see Badgerclops lamenting from the other side of the shore, they decide to kidnap him by means of a hand puppet and knocking him out while he is distracted. When he wakes up in a large glass box, Orangusnake attempts to convince him to help fix their ship when Badgerclops get's a call from Mao Mao who reminds him of his chores. This leads to another miniature breakdown Badgerclops and he promptly blocks Mao Mao's number.
Slightly sympathetic, yet determined to get their ship fixed Orangusnake says that if he helps them there will be no chores he has to do which immediately convinces Badgerclops. After a short house/electronica themed dance
party and an imaginary feast. The Sky Pirates along with Badgerclops fix up the ship and head off towards the Ruby Pure Heart. As they are lounging on the deck, Mao Mao and Adorabat appear to stop them and both are both shocked to hear that Badgerclops has joined the Sky Pirates. Mao Mao then once again calls Badgerclops "lazybones" after Badgerclops shows delight in not having to work, which prompts him to eject Mao Mao and Adorabat off the ship.
Mao Mao then quickly fixes up the aero-cycle and manages to stop Badgerclop from going through with his plan of seizing the Ruby Pure Heart only to crash land onto the deck and tries to reason once again with Badgerclops, who then realizes that despite the fun activities the Sky Pirates gave, their lack of responsibilities also came with drawbacks such as eating only imaginary food causing them to all feel loopy and tired due to no one going grocery shopping. Badgerclops then decides to leave the Sky Pirates, fix up the areo-cycle,and go back with Mao Mao. The episode ends with the trio escape just in time before the Sky Pirate's ship plummets once again to the ground.
- Boss Hosstrich
- Mao Mao
- Badgerclops' song parodies "The Place Where I Belong" from Disney's Hercules and "Reflection" from Mulan.
- The scene with Badgerclops and the Sky Pirates imagining their dinner references the film Hook.
- When Orangusnake watches Badgerclops with Ramaraffe's Telescope, Badgerclops tries to kill Tufted titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor). The color design resembles Titmouse, the production company that created Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart.
- From his actions, it might actually be possible for Badgerclops to kill Titmouse. However, Titmouse is able to escape without any wounds. The reason is unknown, but possibly because the company didn't want to kill their mascot.
