Muriel decides that the family should go on vacation. However, their vacation ends abruptly when their cruise ship is capsized by a tidal wave and they are stranded on a remote island. Katz invites the Bagges into his resort, "Klub Katz", to recuperate. Muriel and Eustace enter the spa where they are unwillfully transformed, Muriel into a washing machine and Eustace into a wrecking ball. Subsequently, the couple is transported into a coliseum where Eustace attempts to destroy Muriel for Katz's amusement. Courage must devise a way to save Muriel before it is too late.


After reading an ad for a cruise line, Muriel decides the family should go on vacation. While Courage is enthused by the idea, Eustace refuses to leave his chair, and takes it with him. On the boat, Courage gets sea sick and vomits into a pipe that leads directly to the engines. This happens to clog them just as the ship ends up en route to an iceberg. The passengers panic, but the ship sustains no damage. However, the incident is immediately followed by a massive tidal wave that overtakes the vessel, sending it underwater. The Bagges find themselves shipwrecked on a tropical island. Eustace is angered by the loss of his chair in the crash, but Muriel thoroughly enjoys the atmosphere of the beach. Meanwhile, a mysterious figure watches them from the bushes.

Unable to sleep due to horrific mechanical noises coming from the jungle, Courage stays up all night carving coconuts. The next morning, Katz shows up on the shore and introduces himself as the owner of a five star resort, "Klub Katz". The couple falls for the charade, but Courage is suspicious. Falsely sympathetic of their accident, Katz offers to bring the family to the spa to relax. On the way to the spa, Courage stops at a soda machine that turns out to be the Captain who warns him to leave the island. He attempts to convey the warning to Muriel as she and Eustace approach the spa, but panics and expresses the warning in gibberish, which Muriel cannot understand. Denied entry to the spa by a reminiscent "No Dogs Allowed" policy, Eustace ties him to a tree outside, and the two enter. Within seconds, screams are heard from the inside. The dog frees himself, but only in time to see Eustace, in the form of a wrecking ball, and Muriel, in the form of a washing machine, being taken away by Katz to a coliseum. He follows, and witnesses them being pitted against each other for Katz's amusement.


Eustace and Muriel fight

Courage then rushes back to the spa and transforms himself into a helicopter. He intrudes on the brawl, saving Muriel. Angrily, Eustace sweeps his ball across the arena, breaking a wall and revealing that Katz has his chair. He again strikes, this time destroying his beloved seat as Katz dives out of the way. As Muriel and Courage escape, Eustace chases Katz and wrecks the island in a heated rage.
