When a team of railway inspectors come to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, they question whether Longfellow the Giraffe needs two mouskatools. This causes concern for Sodor's fire fighting team, Toodles and Quoddles. When Quoddles beats Toodles to two fires in a row, Toodles really starts to wonder if he is a really useful friend or not. He tells Quoddles to take his place on guard at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse firworks display and Toodles sulks in the garbage. But when another fire on the same night, Tooiradles races to put it out, proving Longfellow the Giraffe really does need two mouskatools friends after all.
