Taffy takes the Rugrats to a high school basketball game, where the Hornets are playing the visiting Poodles. However, Taffy "volunteers" herself to replace one of the cheerleaders, after one of them, her best friend Britannica, sprained their ankle, after Taffy caused their pyramid to collapse. As she does so, she leaves the Rugrats alone in the bleachers while she fills in for Britannica, and eventually, everyone else on the cheer-leading squad. Because of this, the Rugrats imagine that the Hornets' mascot was actually a real, giant hornet, trying to "sting" the Rugrats.
