Premise Edit

When Bert and Cedric find Bentley in the old fort, they take him in and find out that he went through a personal crisis and has run away from home. Meanwhile, the Sneer Mansion's new computerized security system goes on the fritz, and attempts to kill Cyril and the Pigs.

Plot Edit

Bentley Raccoon has been kicked out of school for cheating and he flees to the Evergreen Forest. As for Cyril, he installs a new security system, but once again, the Pigs screw it up. As sure as the sun rises in the east, the Pigs manage to jam things up and they manage to get themselves locked inside Sneer Mansion with Cyril. Of course, Bentley's computer expertise can save the day, but can he get himself marshaled up properly for the task. Finally, Bentley is able to release Cyril and the Pigs from their self-imposed prison and oddly enough, Cyril imparts some words of wisdom to Bentley which help him face up to his mistakes and live a better life.
