Plot

Chilly and Slimer left New York City to go camping. Elsewhere, a pair of rabbits named Robby and Rufus scared off an innocent bird and declared they were party animals. They overheard Chilly and Slimer and eavesdropped on them. The rabbits became very interested in the visitors when Slimer brought out bags of food. After a brief inquiry about talking rabbits, Slimer was spooked and hid in a cooler. It was only Chilly. She went off to gather some firewood and asked Slimer to set up the tent. Slimer pounded his left thumb instead of a stake and planted it in the cooler. The rabbits stealthily moved to the food. Luckily, the head of the hammer came loose and fell on Rufus' foot. Robby covered Rufus' mouth and took him far, far away to scream to his heart's content.

When Robby made light of Rufus' pain, they both got mallets and proceeded to pound each other. Meanwhile, Slimer decided to eat lunch while Chilly went fishing. Slimer got out a box of Mama's Insta-Meal. One drop of water turned a blue pill into a full course meal! The rabbits stole the Insta-Meal and poured dozens of pills down their throat at once. They felt weird and drank the nearby river. However, their stomachs expanded and they exploded. The rabbits stole a bee hive and left a trail of honey right to Slimer. A group of ants sucked up the honey and carried the sleeping Slimer back to their mound. Slimer got away and found the two rabbits messing around inside his tent. Slimer stuck an inflatable life boat in the tent and activated it. He then opened the air valve and the boat took off with Robby and Rufus. They eventually crashed into a bee hive and frantically fled from the angry bees. Chilly and Slimer relaxed in hammocks as they ran past them. Chilly wondered what kind of animals those were but Slimer assured her they were "party animals."
