Cody, a boy from Mugwomp Flats responds to a distress call about a trapped giant Golden Eagle called Marahute. Freeing her, he gains a close friendship with the bird. However, Cody is soon abducted by the murderous poacher, Percival McLeach, who is after that bird which is of a highly endangered species and therefore an extremely profitable quarry. In a panic, a mouse Cody freed from one of McLeach's traps sends a desperate call for help to the Rescue Aid Society in New York City who assigns their top agents, Miss Bianca and Bernard, to the task. With transportation provided by the goofy albatross, Wilbur, the agents arrive in Australia and link up with the RAS' local field operative, Jake the Kangaroo Rat. Together, the trio must race against time to find Cody, stop McLeach, and save Marahute. Written by

In the scene where the eagle is trapped, Cody grabs onto the rope of the trap and Jake throws a rope around Cody's shoe to lift himself and Miss Bianca after him. As Cody tries to cut through all of the ropes, both of his feet are visible and there are no mice hanging from them, but when he arrives at the top of the cliff, Jake and Miss Bianca are there.
