One Sentence Summary
The penguins need Private's hypercute to escape Alice in order to see their favorite action star at the cinema, but Private's molting renders him unable to engage the talent.
The penguins are determined to make opening day of their favorite action star's blockbuster movie, Commodore Danger. However, Private has an itching problem. They try to exit the zoo, but Alice had put in a new security system. Kowalski explains to the others that when animals try to exit they get electrocuted, while humans are unharmed. They try exit through the front but get shocked once again. They try exiting through a tunnel, but Private takes a shock. Kowalski then tries to deactivate the system with little success. Kowalski says they need Alice's ID card to disable the system but are unsuccessful in doing so, as her thick neck prevents her from being karate chopped and years of toilet cleaning have made her impervious to gas attacks. Therefore, their only recourse is for Private to use his knockout hypercute, despite his vow never to use it again. However, he acquiesces when Skipper asks what Commodore Danger would do; he'd commit international war crimes, followed by a smashing quip. But when attempts to use his hypercute power on her, instead he started molting. The other cover him and retreat back to their HQ. Kowalski determines that Private's undergoing an ordinary molting cycle but his feathers will grow back in time, time they don't have as there are only four showtimes left. Kowalski reminds that the movie will be still be in theatres the next day but Skipper points out that spoilers about the film will have leaked by then.
The penguins make attempts to Private's bare parts with black marker and white correction fluid, only for him to erupt in allergic hives, forcing them to scrub him, only to worsen his condition. They then cover him with a plush penguin doll, but having neglected to put an airhole, Private takes it off before he could suffocate; his disfigured outlook causing Bert to throw up his peanuts. Kowalski sees Mort attracting the people with his own cuteness and decides to take him to the laboratory to switch Private and Mort's bodies so Private can do the hypercute inside Mort's body. There, Julien makes Mort laugh, causing the machine to malfunction and switches Julien and Maurice's bodies (With Maurice's brain ending up in Julien's butt). They resolve to bring Private to Marlene for help. She says Private still has the hypercute inside him and only needs to believe in himself but when he tries to do the hypercute, he instead produces a black precipitating rainbow, scaring the humans and making them riot. They notice that Alice is distracted by the rioting people, take the card, deactivate the system, and finally get to go to the movie. In film, Marlene questions their success. She grabs some popcorn, but the body of Maurice in Julien's body thinks the popcorn is his, causing Marlene to vomit.
