|~ The Guiena Pigs|
The New Guinea Pigs or Guiena Pigs as they are called, are a tribe of taking guiena pigs that encountered Sam and Max in the third episode, entitled Max's Big Day.
After Sam & Max accidently interrupt a sacred ritual, the New Guinea Pigs take Max to be their chosen one, and one true king.
While looking for a restroom, Max accidentally opened an exit hatch on an airplane and the episode starts with Sam and Max falling hundreds of feet to their undoubtful messy deaths. Max's quick thinking of using his latex skull, it made the perfect parachute for Sam, until a whiff of smoke made Max sneeze. They luckily land in a cauldron of hot water.
Or unluckily, as they had interrupted a ritual that the native New Guinea Pigs were having. Before Sam and Max were to be put to death, the New Guineas instantly change their minds when Max farts in the water and later shows his talent of making armpit noises. They are in total awe with Max, thinking he was sent by the Gods, and crown him the new ruler of the tribe.
Max's new found rulership role goes to his head quickly as he has the power to judge domestic affairs and has people to chew his own food. His contentedness with his pampered lifestyle follows through with a refusal to return to duty when The Commissioner gives them a new assignment. Sam, who can not resist the opportunity of serving justice, reluctantly accepts Max's decision and so leaves the island without him (but with as much unnailed-down stuff he could take). Unknowingly to Sam, the natives are keeping an eye on him, ready to ambush him at any moment.
Max regrets his choice soon after. Seeing their leader bored and depressed, the New Guinea Pigs present him a gift. Excited for what may be inside the box, he opens it eagerly before suddenly taken aback by the grotesque display of Sam's pelt inside (though it "feels nice" when he sobbed into it). While Max couldn't make of the situation, that's when Sam assures Max in a hushed voice that he is okay (as he has a weasel-like ability to collapse his bones and organs).
Max then turns to the natives and tries to politely decline the gift. This didn't please the gift-bearers as "no true Chosen One would turn down a gift from his people, especially one as nice as the hollowed out carcass of a close personal friend". Despite Max's attempts to conciliate, the natives are beyond angry and want to kill both Sam and Max.
Sam and Max make a run for it, but gets surrounded on a log bridge. When all seems lost, out of nowhere the Rubber Pants Commandos comes to the rescue. After fighting off the natives and summing up the so-called morals of the day, the episode ends with them flying safely off into the sunset.
