Cartoon Synopsis:

It begins with the kids chasing a hamburger-shaped car through a town and into a junkyard. There a clown gets out of the burger and makes a run for it. Tess and Dan chase after him, since the cars are stuck on the spikes at the entrance. The clown is captured, but in the process, Tess is nearly run-over by a bulldozer. Visably shaken, Tess returns to Wheels. Uncle Zach calls and tells them he has another assignment for them. Tess tells him no, until she finds out that the mission is to return to their hometown for the Queen's Pageant, where Tess will be the "Queen". This is a festival held in Beverlywood every 25 years. The kids return to their hometown and get ready for the parade. For the parade, Tess gets to wear a huge amulet (while Dan dresses like a jester). In the middle of the parade the amulet is stolen. Tess & Wheels, and Dan on a unicycle give chase. The thief apparently looses the amulet to a rampaging elephant, but they learn that is only a fake, candy amulet. Meanwhile, Dan looses the thief, but gets a candy amulet at a candy store. When he returns to the others, they figure it out and go to the candy store. There they discover an old lady in the attic who is jealous over not being picked to be queen of the pageant fifty years ago. Unbeknownst to her, her son stole the amulet. The kids chase after him, and the amulet, but he escapes onto a steamboat. The cars go into hydrofoil mode and pursue them. Dan manages to get the amulet back, but nearly falls off the boat in the process. And Roadie and Daisy capture the thief. In the end the kids decide that they don't want to stay and that their home is on the road.
