In front of Sonic's Shack, Knuckles is enjoying an afternoon nap. As he sleeps, his friends sneak up on him in order to pull a prank; Sonic pours whipped cream on Knuckles' hand, then Sticks tickles Knuckles' nose to make him rub it and smear the cream on his face. A Flybot watches the team nearby, transmitting its view to Dr. Eggman in his lair. Despite nothing significant occurring, Eggman continues spying in hopes of eventually learning something that will help him defeat Sonic. He gets his chance when Sonic suggests that the team hang out under a canyon cliff despite there being a large loose boulder at the edge; what Eggman doesn't realize is that his Flybot had been spotted beforehand, and he is now in the midst of being pranked.
At the canyon, the Flybot views Team Sonic and the boulder above them, so Eggman flies over to push the rock onto them. What the boulder lands on, however, is not the team but a wooden lever which catapults a tub of whipped cream onto Eggman, causing the team to come out of hiding and laugh at him. Sonic tells a confused Eggman that they tricked him, Tails admits to tampering with his Flybot so he wouldn't suspect anything, and Sticks rambles on about why technology shouldn't be trusted. Surprisingly, Eggman agrees with Sticks and swears off all electronics (with the exception of Orbot and Cubot).
As Team Sonic has a meal at Meh Burger, Amy expresses her concerns over Eggman's reaction to their prank. Her worries are justified when Eggman arrives in the village, having his two minions drag the Eggmobile along the ground. Eggman then approaches a kitchenware vendor, who helps him learn how to use a bowl and spoon; the vendor also suggests a rolling pin and frying pan when Eggman asks for weaponry. Eggman orders the "weapons" in bulk, but says they must be delivered elsewhere as he has abandoned his lair. The Tree Spy overhears this, and informs three other members of the Lightning Bolt Society, prompting them to move out of Eggman's dumpster and into his fortress. Arriving at the control room, the four are in awe of what's available to them but quickly begin to lounge about and haphazardly press buttons that activate random weapons. Meanwhile, Eggman attempts to battle Sonic, but his makeshift weapons are unimpressive, causing Sonic to send him away.
At the lair, Dave and the Weasel Bandit fight over a joystick, not realizing that they are controlling Octopus Bot into attacking the village. Team Sonic confronts the robot, wondering if Eggman went back to his old ways. Elsewhere, Eggman is still trying to live life without advanced technology. The Lightning Bolt Society members continue fiddling with controls, unknowingly launching a missile into the canyon. Sonic runs off to the crash site while his friends fight Octopus Bot. There, he finds the Gogoba Chief trapped under a rock, but leaves him there when Bee Bots are accidentally deployed into the village as well. With all sorts of robots now wreaking havoc, attacking friend and foe alike, Sonic believes he must confront Eggman immediately.
Once Sonic finds Eggman, he demands the robots be stopped. However, Eggman has accepted his new life and is busy farming. Curious, Orbot accesses the lair's computer, where he discovers the Lightning Bolt Society's intrusion. Sonic asks Eggman to help him stop the LBS members, but Eggman only offers a makeshift weapon before he resumes farming. It is not until Dave unwittingly deactivates Orbot and Cubot that Eggman springs back into action and flies back to his lair. As he approaches, he finds Team Sonic being pinned down by the lair's defense system as the attacks are dangerously unpredictable. Eggman then tells them of a secret passage to the backdoor they can all use to enter the lair. The LBS members listen in with a Flybot and head to the backdoor to prepare an ambush. It turns out to be a trick, however, and Sonic and Eggman catch them off-guard. Upon being disarmed, the LBS members flee.
With the Lightning Bolt Society gone, Eggman goes about restoring his lair. He claims it'll take weeks to reprogram his defenses, and asks Team Sonic to not attack until this is done. Eggman then re-activates Orbot and Cubot so they can clean up the mess the LBS made. With everything now under control, Team Sonic takes their leave. Eggman offers them butter he had churned earlier, but they refuse, forcing him to consume all of it before it spoils.
