The Rotyal Gardener is upset that he has dishonored Ozma by having all Ozite species of fish in the palace fish pond with the exception of the crimson-tailed quipperug. While of no real importance to Ozma, she wants to make him happy, and using a magic kit from the Wizard, Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion, go looking for one. Along the way, they meet Dorothy's cat, Eureka, who accompanies them on their journey to the lake the quipperug inhabits.
They are swept up in a vortex of water and land on an island on the inside. There, they find a living doll called Knotboy being chatised by the princess who owns him, who has grown to old to want him around.
The Princess chases them into a pit where they are tormented by a giant toad and a giant black snake. Knotboy helps the others rescue the princess from the toad, and they make amends.
When the king helps them off the island, they find the quipperug, but he tells them that he is a wild fish and has no desire to be admired in an Emerald City pond. Knowing that Ozma would not like to see him unhappy, they return home without him.
