Mickey, Donald and Goofy work as "Pete's Pit Crew", wherein Pete is at a raceway awaiting the crew. However, Goofy had disassembled the truck looking for the source of a squeaky sound (which turns out to be a rubber ducky in his hat). Mickey offends Goofy by saying they need a new sidekick, but quickly backpedals and says that Goofy needs a new hat, and he starts taking Donald's hat, then Mickey's ears and then the hair bows that belong to Minnie and Daisy.
The trio reach a gas station, but due to Goofy's poor re-building skills, they are unable to find the gas cap. Goofy opens up various doors revealing a gas lamp, gas meter, a gastropod (snail), and their "Gast of Honor" (the Mad Hatter). Hatter points out the hat store near the gas station where he got his new hat.
