The RDS on a space satellite that controls the flow of dams in Africa is broken, but there are no space ships that can hold a human available to go to space to fix it. Mr. Houston asks Ted (The Man in the Yellow Hat) if George can complete the mission to save all the animals from the severe flooding in Africa. Ted is reluctant as first, as he fears for George's safety, but agrees to let George complete the training. George passes all the space training and goes off to retrieve the RDS from the satellite to bring back to Earth, but not without a hitch. He almost lets the RDS float away, then spills water on the control panel which sends the rocket into free fall. George ejects from the rocket, but is now lost in the jungle. Search teams go looking for George, but it is Ted who finds him on an animal preserve. Their troubles are not over yet, as a huge storm is coming and threatening to flood the animal preserve. George and Ted devise a risky plan to retrieve the RDS and are able to save the animals from disaster.
