The Punky Pets begin their first six, city, rock and roll tour across the United States. The story starts as these eight musicians, all crammed together in a small van, haphazardly drive through Washington D.C. They call each other horrible names, criticize their past criminal records and make overt sexist remarks. Because they're distracted, they get lost and drive right into the Republican National Convention. They are out of gas and money! Turf tries to siphon gas out of a car but it gives him bad stomach problems. Things get worse when the other four Pets are hauled away by the police. The surviving Pets bump into a very important person, who is misbehaving. Hope comes in the form of an incriminating photo.
