Synopsis

After saving a dog that found its way up to the top of a sky scraper due to his dog house flying away, the Rangers try to find the reason behind the flying dog house. They find a flying carpet and later find the same magic carpets stealing things from various people. Behind the plot is Professor Nimnul and the Rangers continually try and stop his plot by stopping the carpets. Nimnul sets up carpets in the Clutchcoin mansion and the Rangers follow to attempt to stop him. The Rangers nail down the carpets and attempt to use Gadget's electromagnet to stop the carpets, but they eventually take off, pulling the entire mansion into the air with them. The Rangers help steer the mansion as it goes through the city to Nimnul's hideout. Kirby & Muldoon see the flying mansion and follow, eventually capturing Nimnul and solving the case.
