Plot synopsis


Kirby falls asleep after inhaling Noddy.

The episode begins in Cappy Boondocks, at Tuggle’s grocery shop. Kirby, Tuff, and Fololo & Falala are at the store picking out treats for a picnic, and Kirby grabs for himself a chocolate bar. As the grouping leaves, King Dedede and Escargoon arrive in their Armored Vehicle and dump one of the leftover Noddys from The Pillow Case into Kirby’s proximity. Tuff encourages Kirby to inhale the Noddy, which he does, but this ends up putting Kirby into a deep slumber which he can’t be awoken from. Having planned this, King Dedede and Escargoon drive off gloating. Subsequently, Tiff arrives with Falala at Doctor Yabui’due south dispensary to check in on Kirby, who however cannot be awoken. Dr. Yabui explains to Tiff that Kirby had inhaled a Noddy and is now suffering a sleeping sickness which he may not wake from in their lifetimes. Fololo & Falala reveal that Tuff told Kirby to inhale, which draws Tiff’due south ire toward him for a moment, but Yabui breaks them up to tell them of a possible cure; the Pukey Bloom, located in the depths of Babagahara. Tuff refuses to go into that dangerous jungle for Kirby’s sake, so Tiff resolves to become by herself.

After behest bye to her parents, Tiff sets off on a log boat with Kirby in tow down the river toward the jungle. After she withstands a taunt from King Dedede and Escargoon, Tuff jumps onto the boat, throwing Tiff off, and proceeds to row forward intent on leaving her behind. After Fololo and Falala follow suit, Tiff gets pulled out of the river by Meta Knight. As Tuff and Fololo & Falala brand it deeper into the jungle and continue on foot, Tiff and Meta Knight follow behind out of sight. Tuff quickly gets tired of carrying Kirby on his back, but refuses to permit Fololo & Falala assist. Soon, this leads to a struggle between them, which causes Kirby to fall out and into a massive cobweb. Soon, a big Como appears to eat Kirby, and Tiff tries to move in to help, but Meta Knight urges her to stay back and let Tuff handle information technology. Tuff panics and throws a stick at Como, simply it misses. At the same time, withal, a stone from elsewhere lands on Como’s head, forcing it away. Tuff celebrates, thinking he hit it, which causes Tiff to comment on this to Meta Knight, but the masked swordsman insists that Tuff should be allowed this confidence.

Tiff and Meta Knight monitor Tuff and Fololo & Falala covertly through their journey.

Afterwards the group retrieves Kirby, Tuff gloats to Fololo & Falala nearly his aim, but they doubt him, causing him to become mad and throw a ball of spiderweb at them, but he misses and hits a bees nest. The group and then has to run away from the angered bees, causing Tuff to trip down a cliff and into a bog. Later the bees disperse, Tuff goes to collect Kirby, but he gets caught in quicksand on the pool bottom and starts sinking. As Fololo & Falala approach to help, Meta Knight slashes a tree which falls into the bog and gives Tuff something to take hold of onto. That evening, the grouping sets up army camp, intent on standing their search the next day, equally Tiff and Meta Knight comment further on the situation. Come dawn, the group ventures onward and finds a cave entrance which resembles a skull. The group enters the cave, but are shortly forced out by a behemothic yellow cobra who chases them. Meta Knight dispatches the cobra past slamming a log in its mouth, then dropping a bedrock tied to it from a rope to transport it flying down a cliff. Tuff one time once again believes he managed to scare the monster off and gloats, much to Tiff’due south frustration.

The Pukey Flower is set afire after being pinned by Needle Kirby.

With that obstacle out of the fashion, the group sets off into the cave. Later on coming upward to a crossroad, Fololo & Falala apply a false disagreement to get Tuff to choose the management they wanted him to. After a brusk trek, the group then discovers the Pukey Flower fallow in a large opening in the cavern. As the group approaches, the large bud quivers and then opens, revealing the bloom within. After marveling at this, the group approaches, only the bloom then sends out a bunch of Venus fly-trap like appendages to capture them. Meta Knight steps in and cuts these down, freeing them and revealing himself in the process. Meta Knight and so explains that this was a trap set past King Dedede, having spied on them back at the castle before coming out to Babagahara. Tuff becomes upset that Tiff had brought Meta Knight along, complaining that she doesn’t trust him, while Meta Knight proceeds to battle the Pukey Flower. Tuff tries to walk abroad, down-hearted, simply the others terminate him, reminding him of his responsibility toward Kirby. As this happens, Meta Knight starts to lose the fight, as his Galaxia is knocked abroad from him.

Finding new resolve, Tuff runs in to help, merely he is captured again equally Meta Knight is further entangled. Despite this, Tuff, manages to worm his manner to the bloom’southward petals and pluck ane, causing the monster to cry in pain and release Meta Knight. Tuff tosses the petal to Tiff, who uses it to wake Kirby, as he sneezes the Noddy he ate directly into i of the Pukey Flower’due south mouths, clogging its throat. In one case fully stirred, Kirby begins inhaling, and manages to catch the spines on the Pukey Flower’southward base of operations, transforming into Needle Kirby. Needle Kirby quickly uses his power to pin downwards the monster. With the final of its forcefulness, the Pukey Flower tries to eat Tuff, but Meta Knight finishes information technology off with a torch. Tuff makes apology with Tiff and Kirby, apologizing for how he acted, and Meta Knight compliments Tuff for his bravery. Kirby and so finally unwraps the chocolate bar he was belongings onto the whole time and eats it as the episode ends.
