In the second act, Babs tells the viewers that using your imagination is the best way to pass the time on a rainy day.
In the third act, Buster and Babs decide to travel to Aruba where it is sunny.
Rent A Friend
Having gone through 11 rent-a-friends, Montana Max orders a new one, which turns out to be Buster Bunny. Under the advice of his new job, he is to be nice to Monty no matter how rude he is to him. When Monty bullies him, Buster decides to get revenge. Monty demands that Acme Rent-a-friend fire Buster and send a new rent-a-friend, but the company tells him that Buster was the only one who volunteered due to the way Monty treated his other rent-a-friends.
Monty decides to take Buster up to the attic, where his best toys are. One of the toys is an Acme Bunny Basher robot. Buster ties his ears in a knot and puts fake rabbit ears on Monty to fool the robot, who grabs him and nearly tosses him out the window. In an attempt to save Monty, Buster pulls out a Durasmell battery from the robot's Achilles heel, causing the robot to power down. Unfortunately, the robot also drops Monty, but he is rescued by the Acme rescue team.
Buster tells Monty that he called them, and it only cost him $250,000, which he charged to Monty's account. Although Monty is shocked because of the big money loss, he is grateful that Buster saved his life. Just then, Buster's time as Monty's rent-a-friend is up, and Buster takes 13.50 from Monty. Monty is no longer grateful, but Buster is satisfied.
Babs' Mother is gone for the day, shopping at the Acme Mall. She leaves a note telling Babs to clean her room, do her homework, and take a bath without complaining. She uses her imagination to keep herself from being bored.
Buster and Babs take a wrong turn on their way to Aruba and end up in the Antarctic. Babs is frozen in a block of ice and defrosted by a baby seal. Gotcha Grabmore captures the baby seal and attempt to skin it. Buster and Babs disguise themselves as the Vanderbunnys in an attempt to save it. They rescue the baby seal and are chased around the antarctic by Gotcha, so Buster disguises himself as a Mountie to stop her. Gotcha is put on trial and found guilty, sentenced to float south for the winter on a block of ice, where she is unable to poach animals. The episode ends with Buster, Babs, and the baby seal back at Acme Acres, seeing the rainbow when the sun comes out.
