Surly is now loved by Liberty Park’s Urban wildlife community and currently overseeing an all-you-can-eat buffet at Maury’s Nut Shop. This worries Andie, as she prefers a more hard-working outlook on life. Despite Surly’s reassurances all is well, Maury’s Nut Shop is accidentally blown up by Mole when he forgets to cut down pressure from the boiler. Andie takes the opportunity to try getting the animals back to their roots by foraging for food in Liberty Park while Surly and Buddy try to find other food-packed places, but fail each time. Defeated, he and Buddy decide to return to the park.
Meanwhile, Mayor Muldoon relishes in his wealth that comes from profit-making locations across Oakton City. However, he notices Liberty Park never makes money, so he decides to turn it into Liberty Land to pocket more cash. Surly and Andie discover Mayor Muldoon’s plot and Surly convinces the animals to fight back, which they do successfully and they manage to sabotage the construction worker’s efforts to tear down the park. That night, however, Surly’s enjoyment is short-lived when Andie attempts to convince the animals to work hard for food as he believes it can result in disappointment. When the foreman of the construction workers tells the Mayor about the animal attacks, Muldoon calls an extermination squad led by Gunther to get rid of the animals.
