The movie begins in the last day of Elmore Junior High with Gumball, Darwin and the other students leave for their summer vacations after their last day ends.
On the way, Gumball asked Darwin if he thinks that Miss Simian is moving away with Principal Brown. He said he wasn't sure, but he would think that the descendant should be ready for the vacation. Later when he gets home, he asks his mother the same thing, but she only remained silent and went up stairs. Gumball And Darwin felt weird about Their mom, but They decided to not worry about it, for They knew that tomorrow was the first day of the vacation. The next morning, the Wattersons got all ready for the trip. Nicole asks Gumball And Darwin where they heard that accepts his trip, but she said that he would tell them later.
The next morning, the Wattersons are eating in the living room where they see a radio news report about the disappearance of local citizens, including Rocky. The news report shocks them but motivates Gumball and Darwin to investigate and find out who the culprit is. During the investigation, Darwin finds a mysterious egg under Rocky's car, which they take to Anais for further examination. However, the brothers get bored of listening to her so they resume their search for clues. Fortunately, they find pieces of shredded clothes which lead to Rocky's basement, after they finds Rocky.
Meanwhile, Anais finds out that the egg comes from a "Trionyx", the same species as their Evil Turtle.
They saw Stinky, who is the ex-boss for Richard who turn all the puppies into the evil turtles. As the boys began to speak, The boys said that he was the worst and fired fighter of Elmore that all the people didn't believe them. Stinky decides to punches them, but Richard stops him and during the attack, The Evil Turtle shows up at the Wattersons' house and attacks Richard Watterson. Nicole grabbed everyone in her family and headed home to head out of town, attempting to evacuate to avoid after the Wattersons' house sinks due to the sinkhole accident. They had no time to pack anything, they all just headed straight for the car to get out of town. Gumball and Darwin wanted to say something to Penny and Carrie, but had no time. During the trip, the Wattersons had barely escaped, and were the only ones to escape from Elmore in time.
They were lucky enough to find a hotel to stay in for the night. And while they were there, Gumball and Darwin started to ask their mom about the story he heard yesterday. Anais told them a long story about Richard accidentally broughts the turtle instead of a puppy. Then she told them that she is not a puppy. At first, he though it was a joke, but then he saw that nobody was laughing, so he knew it was serious. He was mad with his mom that she didn't tell him before. She tried to apologize, but Gumball didn't listen. Darwin told everyone to calm down, as so they did. Then, Gumball accepts her mother's apology and finds Penny, who wants to travel to Alaska too. Nicole told her son that there is only one weapon that can defeat the Evil Turtle. She said she didn't know where it was, but she did know about a clue of where it is. She said that the clue was somewhere in a snowy place. The Wattersons decided to go to Alaska, for it was the only snowy place that they knew about. They would head straightly there in the morning. Because as of now, Elmore's shoulders know lie in the hands of Gumball And Darwin.
Back in Elmore, Stinky made some troops to attack all the townspeople. They searched the entire city, but they were nowhere to be found. He had figured that they had escaped, so by going to their house, he gathered up information there to find out were they might be found. But he could not do it alone, so he resurrected Jealousy and all the deceased villains. He told them to head for Alaska, because that is where Gumball, Darwin and their family were heading. After they left, Simon feared that Gumball and Darwin was already traveling to Alaska along with his girlfriend Penny, so he and his troops started to turn all the students into the slaves. And especially, he started to search for the Watterson family and brainwashes Miss Simian into her evil self.
Meanwhile, as the Wattersons were traveling down the road to Alaska, they stopped by a gas station to get some food. Gumball and Darwin all of a sudden saw a wanted sign on the wall. It seems though as if Evil Turtle was looking for them. So to make sure that nobody suspected, he quickly tore it down to make sure no one would notice. Nicole bought all the food she could buy. Richard suddenly saw a wanted poster of them behind the manager and warned everybody about it. So Nicole bought the supplies before they noticed, and headed off to Alaska.
As they arrive at the hotel in Alaska, they see that the traffic is all jamed up. After waiting hours in the traffic, they finally made it out, and headed toward the mountain. They found a house to stay in, so they could sleep for the night. The next morning, they headed toward the mountain, then Gumball and Darwin throws snowballs at Anais' face. It took them hours, but they managed to reach the top. At the top, they found an inside pillar with only one room in it. The only room had a book in it, and Gumball started to read it. As he read it, it told him of a clue that told him where the turtle was. Much to her horror, the egg hatches and the hatchling attacks her, alerting Gumball and Darwin who come to her rescue. Once the danger passes, Anais reveals that the Evil Turtle is actually female and has escaped while being pregnant. The entire family was shocked to know where it was, but Gumball And Darwin knew what he had to do - the Evil Turtle has to gives birth of her babies.
As they left the pillar, three strange figures were standing outside, waiting for them. They were Penny and Anais reveals that the Evil Turtle is now pregnant for her babies to cause complete chaos of Elmore and wish to get Gumball And Darwin back to Elmore alive. They showed a treehouse, where one person was in. It was Penny, tied to a chair. Miss Simian said that the Evil Turtle would terrorize and cause chaos across Elmore if she is pregnant. With that, Miss Simian, Mr. Kreese and Rob runs back to Elmore. Anais became angry at Gumball and Darwin, accidentally trauded down the mountain, towards the car the family had parked. After the avalanche, Gumball, Darwin and Anais is then captured by the Stinky's minions and take them into the train and traveled into the forest.
While lost in the forest, the Evil Turtle attacks Anais. But during the attack, Anais is saved by the two women Martha and Elsa, who try to persuade them to be friends. She tells them that they were created by the Rainbow Factory as the puppets, but now becomes Martha and Elsa the anthropomorphic cat and fish. She said it was a long story. They had to get a move-on to save Elmore. But they is captured by Mr. Kreese and takes them into the Richwood High. Darwin is angry to find out that the "fight" is actually a tennis match pitting him and Gumball against Carlton and Troy. During the fight, Cartlon prepares to injure Gumball, but Gumball attacks Cartlon and Troy instead.
After the chase, Gumball, Darwin and Anais steals the bus and drives back to Elmore. As they return to Alaska, Gumball and his friends are reunited by his parents, but Rob orders Doughnut Sheriff and his guards to throw the Watterson family into the jail and to capture Gumball, Darwin, Anais and Penny for their past actions.

After he explained what the plan was, the family had locked in the jail and the kids are separated from them, they all went different ways. Gumball And Darwin however, is attacked by the Evil Turtle again. As he headed to the basement, he saw some guards standing by a familiar looking door. It was where Penny And Carrie was hidden.
