Plot[]

Bob and Linda Belcher are denied an extension on their loan from First Oceanside Savings Bank, and unless they pay it all in a week, their restaurant equipment will get repossessed. They decide to ask their landlord, Mr. Calvin Fischoeder, if they can skip rent for the month until they pay the loan. However, after a sinkhole forms in front of the restaurant, a skeleton is discovered in it, and if Mr. Fischoeder is convicted for the murder, they won't be able to get the rent skip.

The Belcher children Louise, Gene and Tina skip school so they can find out who truly committed the murder, which would free their landlord. After some investigation, they ultimately end up in a secret clubhouse underground a ride called the Mole Hill at an amusement park called Wonder Wharf. Calvin Fischoeder, his brother Felix, and their cousin and family lawyer Grover are all hiding out in the clubhouse until the two brothers can flee the country because of the murder charge. Louise sees a photo that shows Grover wearing a cufflink that was found on the skeleton, revealing that he was in fact the murderer.

Meanwhile at the restaurant, Bob, Linda and their friend Teddy prepare to sell burgers at Wonder Wharf using a portable food stand, in an attempt to come up with the money for the loan and rent. They make a good amount of money, but after being chased by carnies, run into the Mole Hill and fall into the secret clubhouse.

Grover, now pointing a speargun at his seven hostages, reveals his plan: to frame Calvin, kill him and Felix, burn the Mole Hill using a fuse and get the family trust money. He decides that the plan can continue as normal, but the Belcher family must be killed as well. Calvin and Felix are first placed into the submarine designed to drown them, giving the Belchers time to escape. Grover chases the Belchers on go-karts, and in the end buries them in the sinkhole in front of their restaurant. The family is launched out by breaking a water main and they head back to the Mole Hill. Louise stops the fuse from burning down the Mole Hill, the police send Grover to jail and save the Fischoeder brothers from drowning, and the family pays the loan.
