The Rangers intend to go see a movie, but end up watching an opera instead. After seeing two strange figures attempt to attack the lead in the opera, the Rangers give chase. In the sewers under the opera house they find the lair of a crocodile, Sewernose de Bergerac, who desires to be an actor. After making Sewernose believe the Rangers like his performance, he proceeds to take the part of the lead in the opera. The Rangers lure Sewernose to a drain that they have modified to suck him back into the sewers, ending the case.

Sewernose: (landing in the orchestra pit) I meant to do that. Comic relief is essential to drama.
- The only episode where Chip and Gadget both appear in a dress (though not at the same time)
- Continuity error: near the end of the episode, Sewernose uses his rapier to remove Dale's costume. However, after Sewernose goes down the drain, Dale is again shown in his costume.
