A rescue team embarks on a deep sea adventure.

One night, a gigantic whale appears in the harbor with an urgent message for Captain Cody: their mutual friend Tofu is in distress. Barrels of toxic waste have been found near Tofu’s deep-sea research center.

Captain Cody hurries to the rescue with his ship Lindy Hop. His friends Vince, James and Tautou, the monkey are also on their way. But the tricky rescue operation demands technically-advanced equipment. Will Tautou succeed in building an amphibian vehicle for their deep-sea operation? As the ingenious team prepares for their mission, crucial help arrives in the form of a new, heavyweight, friend.
