The Happy Helpers assist famous TV chef Gerald Oxley (Gordon Ramsay) during the filming of his show "Menu Makeover" to save the Hot Dog Diner when Chef Beagle's waitress Mimi goes to study cooking in Paris, France, leaving him to run the diner on his own. The Happy Helpers and Chef Oxley work to clean up the Hot Dog Diner, prepare the food and bring the Hot Dog Diner back to its glory days as the top eatery in Hot Dog Hills, just like Chef Oxley remembers from his childhood.
- The Doogie the Hot Dog Diner mascot is loosely based on the Big Boy mascot of Bob's Big Boy restaurant chain.
- Gerald Oxley is loosely based on his voice actor, Gordon Ramsay.
- Their similarities include being famous TV chefs and food critics.
- "Menu Makeover" is an in-universe reference for "Kitchen Nightmares", where Oxley fixes a diner with a few help from his crew and uses a special dish as the main dish for the reopening of the diner.
