The story begins in a hospital room with Starchie and two Banana Guards injured and bedridden with Peppermint Butler reflecting on what happened.

Earlier that day, Princess Bubblegum is looking for a hammer when she remembers that she gave it to Finn and Jake to help with their adventures. Not knowing where they currently are, she calls Peppermint Butler to find them and he summons Cinnamon Bun to assist him. After looking through the Candy Kingdom and the Tree Fort and after asking all of the duo's friends, they find no trace of them. After reporting their findings to the princess, she's not worried and is sure that the Candy Kingdom will be fine until the duo returns.

Unfortunately, the Candy Kingdom fell into utter disarray without its heroes. In a state of desperation, Princess Bubblegum puts Peppermint Butler in charge of the Banana Guards. As Peppermint Butler is planning to solve the problems of the Candy Kingdom, Starchie bursts in needing help, so Peppermint Butler allows Cinnamon Bun to assist him to get them both out of his hair. Starchie needs help getting Science out of tree, but Cinnamon Bun can't see her. Starchie climbs up the tree to show him where she is and Science pulls out a grappling hook and grapples herself into a castle window. Cinnamon Bun, impressed that Starchie was right about Science being in the tree, offers to get him out of the tree (although Starchie needs no help) and he ends ups toppling the tree into Peppermint Butler's office on top of two Banana Guards, bringing Peppermint Butler's flashback full circle.

Peppermint Butler decides that the kingdom can't survive without heroes so he's has decided to reinstate the Royal Hero Draft.
