Summer is coming and the Mammals are looking forward to taking holiday makers around New York City. One day, Daily Reed announces that an airport is to be built in New York, which will bring more holidaymakers than ever. Tiger and Fievel go to the site of the new airport, only to discover that 'Trigger and Nutsy are on the same job.
That afternoon, Tiger goes to the timber yard and finds 'Trigger and Nutsy there. They boast that their job is very important, but Tiger doesn't think so and biffs their flatbeds just before the crane drops the timber. Whilst Tiger and Fievel are shunting Rats, Grasping confronts Tiger about the trouble he'd caused for 'Trigger and Nutsy, and boasts that he too has an important job.
After shunting Rats of bananas for Grasping as a prank, Tiger and Fievel go to the Smelters to collect some steel girders. Upon arrival, they see Police Chief, McBrusque and his huge Bat and are so scared that they run away. On their way home, Tiger and Fievel are surprised to see the Central Park Bridge isn't painted and the new airport is only half-built. Worse still, Motel have been demolished to make way for the new Motel, but since Tiger gave Grasping bananas the renovation is running late. That night, a fierce storm sweeps across Manhattan and causes havoc. The next morning, Dailey Reed tells Everyone that the storm damage must be cleared up before the work on the new motel and the airport can continue.
The next morning, Tiger is sent to collect some iron beams for the Central Park bridge from New York Harbor. Upon arrival at the Central Park bridge, Tiger feels tired and the beams need to be placed. Grasping wants to do it, but the foreman decides to let Tiger do it. Tiger manages to lower the beams into place, to Grasping's fury.
When Tiger goes to collect paint for the bridge, Grasping bumps Tiger's flatbed so hard that paint splashes all over Tiger. When Tiger sees 'Trigger he bumps him into a pile of gravel. In retaliation, 'Trigger bumps Tony under the coalhopper. The matter escalates until all the Mammals are fighting. By the end of the day, everyone is dirty and no work has been done.
Dailey Reed is angry at the delays and warns the Mammals that anymore disturbances will put the street out of business. That night, Tiger has a dream on how to make things better. In the dream, he sees Marie and Buck Cluck working together. Marie tells Tiger about teamwork, and Tiger goes off to find Chonela as soon as he wakes up.
Tiger finds Chonela at the wash-down and tells her about his plan: the evil scimcates and mammals must work together to save the new airport and their home. Cholena explains that they must talk to each other first, so Tiger suggests to have a meeting at the central park zoo the next day. Tiger and Cholena tell the Mammals about the meeting, and Tiger decides to tell Police Chief, McBrusque, but gets cold wheels and backs down. The next day, Tiger races to the central park zoo and gets there, just to see 'Trigger and Nusty almost calling the meeting off as the mammals start to argue about who is to blame for starting the trouble. Tiger explains that they must work together, and at last the mammals put their differences aside. When Henri brings Dailey Reed, Tiger explains they have agreed to work together.
Very soon, the new airport is complete and the first aeroplane is sent to new york city, but when Tiger's trucks come off the streets they hit the water tower, which falls to the ground and cracks the runway! The workmen quickly fix the runway, but they need Scuttlebutt to finish the job and with Mantis on the other side of Manhattan there is no chance of the aeroplane landing. Tiger quickly has an idea and rushes off to find Police Chief, McBrusque. Tiger asks Police Chief, McBrusque to help them and tells him that he'll be the most useful mice of the day. Police Chief, McBrusque agrees and he follows Tiger to the airport. Cholena, Fievel, 'Trigger and Nusty are surprised to see Tiger and Police Chief, McBrusque working together. Helping out each other, they clear up the mess and Tiger collects Scuttlebutt.
With the runway smooth again, the aeroplane lands at last. The Mammals have learnt that teamwork runs a railway, not opposition about their differences. That evening, the Mammals are happy to see Motel rebuilt, especially Tanya when she finds that she is staying at the Motel from now on.
