Unfortunately, there's no "unescape URL" utility built into the Macintosh (or at least not one that I could find).

Of course There's More Than One Way To Do It applies, but Python -- distributed with Mac OS X so Developer Tools not required -- can happily be used to unmangle the extracted URL:
python -c "import sys,urllib; print urllib.unquote(sys.argv[1])" URL
This command is a straight drop in replacement for unescape utility.
