The citizens of Cranberryport need to raise money for a new dock after theirs is destroyed in a storm. Almost everyone volunteers to help, with Mr. Whiskers offering to keep the money that's raised in his grandfather's moneybox.
Cranky Mr. Grape refuses to contribute and insists it's a mistake to trust Mr. Whiskers. Grandmother speaks up for him and Mr. Whiskers gets the job. Later, on the way to the town Halloween party Maggie and Mr. Whiskers are confronted by two men dressed as pirates who want to steal the town's money. What will they do?
