Pingu meets up with Pingo one day and Pingo tells him that he is pretending to be a superhero. He gives Pingu his comic book and Pingu takes it home, where he reads a story in the book about a superhero fighting a helicopter. Pingu decides he should be a superhero too and runs around the igloo wearing a cape, ramming into things and knocking things over, causing a big mess. Meanwhile, Pinga decides to play princess after reading a book about one.
Pingu prepares himself to jump off a chair on top of a table, but the chair wobbles and he falls over and hurts his foot. Mother rushes him straight to the hospital, where they find that Pingo's superhero act has left him with his own injuries. Pinga shows them her princess book, which cheers them up.
