PlotEdit

CatDog watches a television program called Lifestyles of People Who Are Richer Than You. Cat tells Dog that they should have lived in a rich lifestyle, but tells him they he still likes the house they live in. Winslow appears from his hole. Feeling generous, he tells CatDog about the Golden Hydrant, a valuable artifact whose location is unknown, and shows a magazine depicting it to CatDog. Cat and Dog is interested in finding it, and Winslow gives CatDog a coupon to mail with to receive the map that leads to the Golden Hydrant. Cat tries to put the coupon into the mailbox but when a garbage truck passes by, Dog chases it which pulls Cat. As they pass through an alley in Nearburg the Greasers chases them as CatDog goes into the junkyard. Eddie the Squirrel steals the coupon from CatDog.

After CatDog reclaims the coupon pieces from Eddie, CatDog scolds Eddie and Cat throws him. As CatDog reads the coupon, he learns that the coupon should be mailed to Northern Trading Post in Iceberg by midnight, which surprises him. Cat tells Dog to go to Iceberg by midnight and they leave the junkyard. Eddie curses at CatDog and challenges them to get the Golden Hydrant. The next scene we see Dog dashing on a sled with Cat in their attire in "Mush, Dog, Mush!.

CatDog reaches to the trading post, where they exchange the coupon for the map from Mervis. As Cat looks at the map, he finds out that they must climb Mount Nearburg. After Mervis listens to CatDog on the Golden Hydrant, the Greasers comes inside the trading post.

CatDog scales the mountain to the peak, where they find the Wise Guy of the mountain emerging from the peak. The Wise Guy of the Mountain tells CatDog of a place with "melted cheese, jalapenos, hot sauce, and taco shells" across "a sea of asphalt". Cat notices that the place he is talking is Taco Depot. Shortly CatDog dissolves into particles and teleport to Mean Bob's spaceship. Mean Bob is shocked of CatDog appearing in his spaceship and his enemies, the Salivians, manages to destroy his spaceship, causing him and CatDog to come out of its destruction.

After CatDog destroys a number of Salivians, Mean Bob saves CatDog and takes them to just outside of Taco Depot. CatDog goes inside the restaurant and finds Rancid Rabbit and his employees working in the kitchen. Rancid hires CatDog and the Greasers, and he points out that the best employee will enter a special room.

After CatDog delivers enough tacos to Rancid, Rancid allows CatDog to enter the room. Cat is initially disappointed that the room is the bathroom of Taco Depot but when a bathroom stall mysteriously opens, he finds gold-colored scribbles of the Golden Hydrant and a "poem" written in the stall. They find out that the Golden Hydrant is at the Museum of Natural History and travels there. As they go in front of it in night, a trapdoor opens below causing CatDog to fall into an Ancient Egyptian Tomb-like dungeon filled with mummies.

CatDog reaches to the Golden Hydrant but the Greasers, Mervis and Rancid arrives soon after. Rancid tells CatDog that the Golden Hydrant belongs to Nearburg since it is found within city property. He rewards CatDog with Golden Hydrant merchandise. CatDog returns back to their house, with Cat unhappy that he did not claim it despite finding it and getting a Golden Hydrant t-shirt instead. Winslow comes out of his hole, telling Cat that he has a treasure from the 17th century. The story ends with Cat being angry while Winslow talks to him in response.
