PAW Patrol: The Movie Storyline
A truck driver in Adventure Bay crashes and hangs from the town’s suspension bridge. When Cap’n Turbot sees what’s going on, he calls Ryder, who dispatches the PAW Patrol puppies. Chase, the police dog, comes to the truck driver’s rescue.
Meanwhile, Mayor Humdinger, the PAW Patrol’s archenemy, was recently elected mayor of adjacent Adventure City. Liberty, a dachshund, alerts the squad to Humdinger’s infamous wrongdoings in Foggy Bottom. Chase refuses to go because he has a “history” in the city dating back to when he was a puppy, but Ryder persuades him to return. The team arrives at their new headquarters and settles in. Meanwhile, Humdinger employs a Cloud Catcher to clear the weather so he can perform his firework display.
The show goes off the rails, and the team is notified. They slam into a traffic bottleneck, but Liberty appears and directs them to City Hall. They are able to handle the issue, but Chase is unable to save certain victims, who are instead rescued by Marshall. Humdinger, enraged, orders his thugs Butch and Ruben to eliminate the PAW Patrol by any means possible.
A few days later, Humdinger constructs a subway extension with many inversions akin to a roller coaster. When it breaks, the passengers are trapped upside-down. They are rescued by the pups, but Chase freezes and must be rescued by Skye. Chase is upset by Ryder’s suggestion that he take a break from his duty, so he flees and is quickly apprehended by Humdinger’s thugs. The squad discovers a number of missing canines, which Ryder connects to Humdinger.
Liberty is kidnapped on purpose and sent to a canine jail, where she meets haughty valley girl poodle Delores and saves Follow and the other dogs, who then chase Ruben and Butch.
Ryder leads Chase to where he was discovered and explains that he chose him because he was the bravest dog he had ever met. Meanwhile, the Cloud Catcher has gone critical, and Kendra Wilson, the creator, confronts Humdinger. He destroys the remote and reveals his Humdinger Heights structure. The machine sends a week’s worth of severe weather our way. Liberty is given her own vehicle and outfit, and she joins the team after Kendra calls the team. Ryder saves Humdinger, but when the building collapses, he is trapped within. Skye goes to halt the Cloud Catcher while Chase comes up to help him. Chase takes a risk and saves Ryder, while Skye uses a kamikaze attack to destroy the Cloud Catcher.
In a big ceremony, the gang is awarded the key to Adventure City. Liberty becomes a full-fledged member, achieving her long-held ambition. Ryder begins to speak but is interrupted by a call from Harris, one of the dogs from the dog jail, who reports that there is trouble at the waterfront, prompting the squad to rush to the rescue while the theme song plays.
Mayor Humdinger and the Catastrophe Crew are seen to have been caught and detained throughout the film in the credits.
