Storyline

Cyril Sneer attempts to unload his potato chip business on Mr Knox, claiming that this product is selling like "hot potatoes." However, "Sneer Snacks" sales have been down for some time, and Cyril is mainly hoping to dump a badly-performing product on the unsuspecting Knox. Cyril still finds nothing wrong with the chips, which don't even crunch, and come in strange flavors like "fried egg and broccoli" (also, only 5 potato chips come in every 50-cent bag).

The pigs come up with the idea to have a contest with a prize giveaway. Cyril likes the idea, and formulates a contest where noone can win, thus ensuring sales profits will be up when he and Knox close the sale within a week. The contest is for a Blue Phantom Bicycle, which requires 8 puzzle pieces (one in each bag) to be fully connected to win the grand prize.

Bert Raccoon soon finds out about the contest, and soon grows obsessed with winning, even going so far as to sell all his prized possessions to keep buying more chips.
