Timon and Pumbaa see that there are no Blue Rhinos in the jungle and Timon suggests that if the couple find another animal that they would like to see, they will give them money. Timon and Pumbaa guide the couple to see a Blue Rhino. The couple see that there is no Blue Rhino and they want Timon to give them their money back.

At the start of the episode, Timon and Pumbaa make an advertisement for anyone who would like to take pictures of exotic animals in their natural habitats, with Timon knowing that they could get rich doing this. The duo’s first customer is a rich couple named Eleanor and Julian Dewberry. Eleanor tells them that they would like to take a picture of a big blue rhino. When the couple gives Timon and Pumbaa a check, the two friends decide to run the safari.
   
Eleanor tells Timon that if they don't find the Blue Rhino later on, the meerkat must return the money to them. In order to keep the money, Timon decides for him and Pumbaa to disguise themselves as other animals, but Pumbaa refuses to do so. So only Timon will dress up.

While the Dewberries are relaxing, Timon and Pumbaa have a hard time finding a blue rhino as it is proven to be very rare. Timon tells Pumbaa that they don’t have to give people what they want, they should show them what they have and convince them they want it.
   
Timon brings the couple over and pretends to be a bird, a crocodile, and a giraffe. But the couple just want to see a Blue Rhino.

The next morning, Timon and Pumbaa attempt to show the couple the glory of the Serengeti. However, the couple is not satisfied and force the duo to give them their money back. But Timon tells them that giving money back is not their policy. The meerkat then realizes that Pumbaa did not remove the “giving back money” part in their ad when he told him to do so. The reason Pumbaa did not do so is that he realizes that it would be unfair to the customers and not giving back their money would not make them happy. Eleanor tells Timon that if they don’t show them anything productive the next day, he will be forced to give them back their blank check.
