The episode begins in King Pig's castle, where King Pig ate everything on his plate (including the plate itself), while his maidservant swept the leftovers. When King Pig realized that there was nothing left for him to eat, he smelled some food sold by a nearby vendor. He then rushed outside, unaware that his crown fell off his head. The maidservant then swept it away without realizing it.
The vendor, thinking that King Pig was an ordinary pig, did not allow King Pig to eat the food, unless he paid. King Pig tried to show that he was the King, but the selling pig did not see it. King Pig then saw his reflection in a mud puddle and realized his crown was missing.
King Pig then tried to go back to his castle, but his guards would not allow him inside. King Pig tried walking inside, but the guards poked his rear end with their pitchforks, causing him to fall down backwards while splashing Corporal Pig with muddy water, making Corporal Pig angry. King Pig giggled, but this only made Corporal Pig even angrier, and with the guards, they threw King Pig into a garbage pit.
The pigs then mocked their king by laughing at him, much to his dismay. Suddenly, the maidservant threw the swept garbage (including the crown) onto King Pig, while Corporal Pig and the guards continued laughing. King Pig stood up, wearing his crown. All the laughing pigs were suddenly surprised, and were later punished by King Pig by being used as wheels of the wagon used by the vendor. King Pig then proceeded to eat all of the food inside the wagon and took a ride around the dining room of the castle.
