At O.W.C.A.-Traz, the Organization Without a Cool Acronym's high security prison, rogue agent Dennis the Rabbit is being kept captive. Suddenly, he is broken out of his cell thanks to Norm and Doofenshmirtz.
Meanwhile, Isabella shows her friends the marionette show the Fireside Girls are planning to do. Phineas believes that the marionette show could use a little sprucing up. Buford talks about his Uncle Oslo from Oslo, Norway, who used to make unfinished giant marionettes. Phineas asks Isabella if she's ready for the "next step" and Isabella assumes he's referring to her relationship with him, but he's actually talking about the puppet show. Isabella awkwardly changes the subject by saying "Where's Perry".
At his lair, Agent P is informed by Major Monogram that Dennis has escaped from prison and suspects that Doof is behind it.
Back in Isabella's backyard, a semi-trailer delivers 22.5 tons of reclaimed pine logs. Phineas asks the driver if he's a little young to be driving, since the driver's face looks like a baby. It turns out to be the work of Babyface Truckin', whose slogan is "Our drivers look like children, but they're not." The pine logs get dropped into the backyard, and the driver goes home to take a nap.
At Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated, Dennis emerges from the giant disco ball doing his cutesy-wutesy bunny routine, but, surprisingly, Doofenshmirtz isn't fooled by it since he knows about Dennis' reputation as a wanted mercenary and criminal. He offers a deal to Dennis: he will provide Dennis the technology to defeat Perry and in return, he will take over the Tri-State Area. Determined to get revenge on Perry, Dennis accepts the deal by giving a thumbs-up.
The Fireside Girls' puppet stage is now a control center used to robotic-ally manipulate the...rather creepy-looking giant Fireside Girl marionette. As soon as Ferb gives the thumbs up, Phineas, Isabella, Buford, Baljeet and the Fireside Girls get the Giant Puppet walking out of the Garcia-Shapiro backyard and roaming the streets of Danville. The citizens of Danville are mystified by this giant. They believe it is telling them to love one another.
Back at D.E.I., Doofenshmirtz shows Dennis his latest inator, a robotic backpack that can transform into anything. Dennis tries it out, and in the process, destroys parts of Doof's apartment. He turns the backpack into a rocket-powered super-suit and blows a hole through the roof. Perry goes on the lookout for the rogue rabbit and finds him. The fight commences. The platypus and the rabbit have at each other. They land in the Flynn-Fletcher backyard where Dennis' suit transforms again. They are about to fight once more when they hear Candace and Stacy approaching and go into their mindless pet modes. Candace instantly recognizes "Mr. Cutie Patootie", the rabbit she once adopted and talks in her cutesy voice (while Stacy does everything she can to prevent herself from throwing up at this).
Meanwhile, the gang decide to take a break from moving the puppet to get some Slushy Dawgs for lunch.
In the garage, Candace gets some food for her bunny but finds that he has disappeared. Stacy guesses he is "down at the docks" or maybe playing around.
Somewhere in downtown Danville, Dennis and Perry have resumed their fight. Perry then sees the giant marionette and walks into the control room to make the puppet fight the rabbit. However, Dennis destroys the control room, so Perry climbs on top of the beret and controls the puppet manually. Doof checks in on how Dennis is doing from the comfort of his living room and sees the rabbit robot fighting the giant marionette. He soon recognizes the wooden girl's fight style to be reminiscent of Perry and goes out to deal with him.
At Mr. Slushy Dawg, Phineas discusses the difference between marionettes and puppets, oblivious to the fight going on out the window behind him. Doofenshmirtz arrives to fight his nemesis on top of the giant marionette. Perry manipulates the marionette to punch Doofenshmirtz and ties him up on one of the strings. Perry makes the puppet dive into the ocean and the rabbit robot follows him. Underwater, Dennis's robot suit starts leaking, so Perry cuts through his dome with a laser and saves his life. Dennis swims up to the docks and Perry follows him. Candace and Stacy appear and Candace is reunited once again with "Mr. Cutie Patootie", as is Phineas with Perry. Suddenly, Major Monogram and Carl walk up to them in disguise. Monogram claims the rabbit is his pet rabbit, Mr. Bigelow. Candace gives him the rogue rabbit, where he plans to put him in his "special room". As soon as they leave, Candace begins to get suspicious about them. Phineas assures her that rabbit owners come in all shapes and sizes, however Candace, Stacy and Ferb point out their eccentricities, such as a flight helmet, cowboy boots and a fake mustache, plus they take off in a helicopter. Phineas says that none of those things disprove his previous statement.
