Plot

In Egypt, an explorer named Gordon Jarvis is driving his jeep through the desert to a location for which he had been searching the last 20 years of his life. Jarvis finally comes upon his destination, the giant pyramid known as the "Pyramid of Ramal." As Jarvis climbs up the pyramid for a closer look, some sand tumbles off the pyramid to reveal a giant golden circle. As the sun reflects off the circle, two nearby giant mounds of sand blow away to reveal two Stone Creatures, who come to life and attack Jarvis, blasting him with sand and freezing cold winds until he is forced to flee.

Nearby, the Calico Crew arrives at the Nile River. As Brock, Pete, and Godzooky go swimming in the river, Majors and Quinn stumble upon Jarvis, who has collapsed and is covered in frostbite. After Majors and Quinn help him recover, Jarvis explains to the Calico Crew of the creatures who attacked him: the "Stone Guardians of Ramal." Traumatized by the event, Jarvis refuses to go back to the pyramid's location, but he does mention where the pyramid is, despite his pleas to them not to go.

With Jarvis presumably better now, the Calico Crew goes off to explore the pyramid themselves. While piloting their mini-copter however, the Crew is caught in an updraft caused by a sandstorm. The sandstorm suddenly turns into a blizzard, freezing the mini-copter's rotors and incapacitating Godzooky from helping them. With Godzilla as their only hope, Majors calls upon him. Godzilla receives the call and arrives just in time to rescue the Calico Crew from crashing. At the same time however, Godzooky manages to brave through the blizzard to learn just what was the cause was. The Stone Guardians notice Godzooky and they attempt to freeze him as well, but Godzilla intervenes and scares them off. The Stone Creatures hide themselves in sand yet again once Godzilla is temporarily distracted by Godzooky tumbling into a pit. Unable to find where the Guardians have disappeared to, Godzilla takes his leave.

After Godzooky discovers the Pyramid of Ramal, Majors, Quinn, and Brock all begin digging away to find anything of value. A sudden sand slide causes the Guardians to reveal themselves. This time though, the Guardians don't move, fooling everyone into thinking they're just normal statues. When Godzooky stumbles across a nearby lagoon, he and Pete go to fill their canteens. When one of the canteens drifts out too far, Pete gets sucked into a whirlpool. Godzooky tries to save him, but he too is caught into the whirlpool. The Whirlpool carries Pete and Godzooky into a water channel which takes them inside the Pyramid of Ramal itself. After exploring a few of the rooms inside the pyramid, Pete and Godzooky eventually find the stone door that leads outside.

Back at the digging site, the golden circle on the pyramid activates and the Stone Guardians come to life and notice the rest of the Calico Crew. Feeling that their pyramid is being threatened, the Guardians immediately begin attacking them with their sand attacks and ice breath. With no other option, Majors calls upon Godzilla for help. As Godzilla hurries to their rescue, the other members of the Calico Crew learn that Pete and Godzooky are inside the temple. After managing to pull push the heavy stone door open, the Crew accidentally find themselves trapped by the Stone Guardians, who begin blasting their ice breath at the doorway.

Luckily, Godzilla returns just in time and engages the Stone Guardians in battle. The battle proves difficult for Godzilla when the Stone Guardians begin pelting him with giant hailstones before finally trapping him in a thick coating of ice. While Godzilla is immobilized, the Guardians charge at him, hoping to crush him in between their attack. Fortunately, Godzilla manages to break free from his icy coating and he sidesteps out of the way just in time, causing the Guardians to collide into one another, reducing them into a giant crumbled-up heap of rocks. With the Guardians destroyed, the Calico Crew manages to get out of the pyramid safely while Godzilla takes his leave.
