When MacArthur Duff's new clean-burning fuel from cholesterol makes the top news story, Arthur realizes that a clean-burning fuel could put the Happy Sunny Oil company out of business. He sends George and Leonard to the Duff house to kidnap one of the family members and hold him or her hostage. They arrive to the Duff house, and Elmyra gets in their van by chasing after Furrball, since she is practicing for her new show, The Elmyra Fun Show, the idea given to her by a sarcastic remark from Amanda Duff, her older sister. They trick Elmyra into thinking they are the executives for her new show, and take her to a warehouse. Duncan witnesses their capture and follows them to the warehouse, which Elmyra believes is the studio for The Elmyra Fun Show. When Elmyra proves to be too much for them to handle by the time the police and Elmyra's family arrive to the warehouse, they give in, and Arthur, along with them, are arrested. Arthur is forced to watch Elmyra on the news, which he finds a cruel punishment, much to the delight of George and Leonard. Elmyra thanks them for the start on her new show during the newscast.
