A new day has come, Scrooge McDuck wakes up on a nice summer morning, looking forward to a good day. Here Mrs. Cluvdia comes into his bedroom, she wants to warn him against external dangers and prepare for the unexpected, as the brothers with Ponochka started a game of war games, and there is a noise around the house. Scrooge is condescending to the games of children, he gives tactical advice as he runs past Willy, he is about to take a bath. The little pony in games acts tough and does not spare anyone, it sets up a trap into which Dilly falls and overtakes Billy. Mrs. Cluvdia does not share the views of the owner of the house and is worried about the disorder that the guests are arranging, but Scrooge only chuckles. His opinion changes when he sees Donald occupying his bathroom, he immediately convenes a family council and establishes the rules with Cluvdia. From now on, no guests should ask permission before using household things, Donald is against it – he is used to doing everything himself and is not going to follow the advice. Adults drive the children out, and the brothers decide to go to the Fanzo entertainment house, Willy offers Billy and Dilly to take Ponochka with them, they reluctantly agree.
At the bus stop, Billy warns Ponochka to behave roughly and not touch anything, but the girl cannot restrain herself, she wants to try everything, so in the end the whole company is put out of the bus. They have to get to Fanzo through a dysfunctional area, where the Gavs brothers notice them and decide to abduct the children for ransom. The guys safely get to the entertainment center, Dilly undertakes to give Ponochka an excursion and conducts it in a cafe, simultaneously giving savings lessons, but Ponochka did not fully understand the principle of operation, as a result, Dilly had to pay for the juice. Then Ponochka goes to the gaming zone, where Willy at this time sets a world record in the game on slot machines. He offers her a try, she starts to succeed, but at that time the dressed-up Gavs are trying to sneak up on the children from behind, the girl reflexively pushes the enemy and he, falling, touches the socket with his foot, and the game turns off. All records are erased, and Willie is upset. Ponochka is also upset that she is causing trouble to everyone, but her brothers find and reassure her, but, unfortunately, Ponochka fails them again: when she starts to fall into the pool with balls, the girl in a panic tries to catch on a grappling hook and accidentally starts a fire, why the guys are expelled from the entertainment center. Willy’s decision to take Ponochka with him wasn’t the best, which Billy and Dilly would not be slow to tell his brother, but at the same time the Brothers Gavs still grab them.
At this time, Donald, proving his independence, is trying by all means to prove that he is able to cope with household chores on his own. He does not skimp on the expense of water or electricity, but he doesn’t get it and he arranges either a flood when Scrooge is about to wash, or a fire. Mrs. Cluvdia watches from outside his attempts and obviously enjoys. When Donald receives a ransom note, he still has to turn to Cluvdia for help while Scrooge takes a bath of gold. In “Fanzo”, Boss Gavs demonstrates to Mom Gavs the captured children, Maam Gavs is dissatisfied with this, since he believes that Scrooge will not give a cent for his relatives. She punishes her son in the same pantry, and Gromila and Obzhora orders to prepare for the arrival of Cluvdia. The boss is indignant that his mother does not allow him to prove himself and rejects all his ideas, but Ponochka interrupts his thoughts, stunning the bandit. She helps the brothers get free and they come up with a plan to capture Mother Gavs. Outside, Mrs. Cluvdia and Donald arrive at the meeting place, Mother Gavs sends her two sons to detain them, and herself sets off to catch the fugitives. Ponochka lures her into a trap – into a pool with balls, they suck the leader of the Gavs, and the children catch her in a net where her son is already waiting. Kluvdiya and Donald find the guys, the grandmother praises the granddaughter for the work done.
Upon returning home, Mrs. Cluvdia helps Donald fix the electricity in the house, and their relationship becomes warmer. And the brothers, sitting by the pool, let Ponochka choose a new game. For the capture of the Gavs family, all sanctions were lifted from them.
