Ape City is being burglarized! Valuable items are stolen from the Museum, Ape Archives, and from ape homes. Into the night, familiar hooded figures sneak into the cemetery where all the stolen items are hidden. In a plot twist, we see that it is Urko and his gorillas who are disguising themselves as Underdwellers in hopes of framing them and convincing Dr. Zaius to declare war on the world below.
However Krador, leader of the Underdwellers, knows this secret and warns Bill, Jeff and Judy. Now they must quickly tell Zira and Cornelious who can let Zauis in on the plan so he can put a stop to it. It may be too late since Urko has already sent a barge full of explosives to destroy the underground territory of the Underdwellers.
