Hoppy Tiger and Mia Meow had helped one friend. That still left 4 more friends to help.
Ursula Bear and Jackson Jack-in-a-Box decided to see if Henry the Archaeologist wanted help. "Me, too! Me, too!" cried Alvin Penguin and he dashed off after the other two.

Cora Crocodile, Sybil Sea Serpent and Happy Turtle thought they would head for the Harbour. Have a little dip in the ocean and perhaps help the Light-House Keeper.

The rest of the pets were still thinking.

At Ice Rock, Ursula found Henry in a temper. "It is just too much work," he muttered. He was looking at the list of tasks the Midnight Castle Council wanted him to do. "How am I to get my other tasks done?" "Can we help?" Ursula asked in an Apprehensive Tone. Henry whirled around and shouted "Yes!" when he spotted the pets. "I need to go to the Mystery Chamber and examine the Tree of Knowledge and find out what's in the Secret Slab. Here is a list of things that need to be done while I am away." He handed the list to Ursula and raced off. The pets read the list.

Check out the Winter Idol.
Give the Ice Monster a good look.


It seemed easy enough but no-one saw the Crafty Leprechaun peeking out from behind the tree.

They consulted the list. Ursula Bear said she would take care of the Winter Idol so Alvin Penguin and Jackson (Jack for short) Jack-in-a-Box headed towards the Ice Monster.

While the pets had been consulting (prior to heading off to their tasks), the Crafty Leprechaun crept up to the Winter Idol. There he stood in the supplicant pose of an Idol Worshipper. Waiting.

Now the hapless duo of Alvin and Jack had heard stories of what a Bloodthirsty Idol the Ice Monster was. They were shaking in their 'boots' as they approached the Ice Monster. Then they gathered their Strength and Courage and faced the Ice Monster. Now their task was to give the Ice Monster a good look. So that is what they did - literally. They stood and gave him an Attentive Stare. The Ice Monster could not work what the pair were doing. So he asked. When they told him, he started to chuckle. They were supposed to 'look' for items, not stare at him. The air around the clueless duo got cold and the Ice Breath of the Ice Monster started misting. Jack started waving his arms around to clear the mist. The Ice Monster laughed harder. Alvin stepped on an icicle and went for a slide. "Wheee!" he called. Then they heard a Piercing Shriek. The duo needed to go. The Ice Monster had enjoyed himself so much that he gave each of the pets a gold chest.

Meanwhile Ursula ambled over to the Winter Idol. Her task was "To check out the Winter Idol". It was making a funny grinding noise. She looked around for the Mask of Wisdom & the Devil's Glove - both of which were needed to open the idol. As she reached for the Mask of Wisdom, the Crafty Leprechaun raised his head. He had donned the Predator Head mask. He gave a scary Ringing Laugh. Poor Ursula got the fright of her life. She gave a Piercing Shriek and covered her eyes with her paws. The Crafty Leprechaun grabbed the Devil's Glove and raced over and quickly climbed the tree to the Binding Egg. Using his Grave Blade, he prised the egg open. As he was starting to throw the Devil's Glove in, he saw the black skull of the Memento Mori staring at hm. He gave a Wild Wail, dropped the glove and fled from Ice Rock.

Alvin and Jack came rushing up to see what had happened.

Just as Alvin Penguin and Jack Jack-in-a-Box reached Ursula Bear's side (panting from the run), Henry the Archaeologist arrived back from his visit to the Mystery Chamber. He was pleased that everything had gone so smoothly. But his expression changed to shocked when he heard about the "horrible apparition" that Ursula had seen.

While Alvin, Jack and Henry searched all around to see if they could find the Night Mare apparition, Alvin found the dropped Devil's Glove. He returned it to Ursula.

With the Power of Fear still coursing through her, Ursula fitted the Mask of Wisdom & the Devil's Glove in the appropriate places on the Winter Idol. It creaked open. Looking inside Ursula found a Riveted Disk. It needed fixing - it had popped some of the rivets. That was the cause of the grinding sound.

Henry had one more task to do - Find the Sand of Eternity in the Frozen Treasure. But he decided to do that task himself. It was time to send the pets home. Before the pets left, Henry gave Ursula a gold chest to help her get over her fright.

As they made their way home clutching their gold chests, the pets talked about the Bremen Musicians concert.

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Grimdahl Tiger sits at the table in the kitchen enjoying a supersized Mug of Coffee topped off with gobs of whipped cream. He's thinking about what a mess it was when Henry turned into a Lion, and Salty turned into a Scarecrow. Somehow (he's not sure how), Henry and Salty are now back to normal. All Grim was really able to do was give them his friendship and support during that trying time, but both said it helped alot. It really was not an easy task to escort them around while trying to conceal their identities. Grim also took over running the Bar Counter for Salty, who worked in the kitchen where no one could see him.

Looking out the window at the clear, crisp Sunny Fall day, Grim thinks to himself, "Now that all the commotion has calmed down, we can concentrate on getting ready for Halloween and the annual party!" His reverie is disturbed when Harry Hedgehog comes running in panting. "GRIM!", Henry pants. "I think we need to plan an intervention!". "I had to get here as quick as I could to inform you!"

Eye to Eye with Harry, Grim asks, "What is it? I'm sure I can help!". "Well, says Harry, I'm not sure if you can or not." "I snuck into the Tavern to make myself a large Orange slushie, and I overheard Salty thinking out loud." "Something about all the new surrounding areas springing up, and how he wants to open a Tavern in each one...and he plans to start building today!" "We all know that Salty can't even properly manage one Tavern, let alone one in every city!"

Grim looks horrified (very seldom does Grim lose his cool), and thanks Harry for letting him know in speedy fashion. "You are right Harry, this is a very serious matter." "And it does indeed call for a swift intervention." Gather ALL your siblings. I am going to need as much help with this as I can get!"

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Lenny Lemur is on his way to the Road Sign. He wants to have a look at the current announcements to see if he can find anything to attend where he might "accidently on purpose" run into Bright Eyes/Liv Lemur. He did not tell Lucky Lemur about this idea. Let Lucky get his own ideas if he wants to see Bright Eyes/Liv. Lenny is pretty sure she likes him better anyway. Lenny spies a few things the other pets might be going to, but nothing that he thinks will attract Liv (unless Miss Dot forces her to go).

All of a sudden, Lenny is hit with a craving for some Strawberry Ice Cream. Being so near to Salty's Tavern, he figures he'll get it there. But first he stealthily creeps around the back of the Tavern. What luck, no Angels hanging about! Scampering inside, and under the counter into Harry Hedgehog's hiding place, he listens carefully to get a take on what's what. He can't get the Ice Cream unless the coast is clear. And it's not. Lenny can hear Salty talking to himself on his way from the kitchen to the Bar Counter. But Lenny knows how to be patient if he tries really REALLY hard. So he waits.

As Salty gets closer, Lenny hears him muttering to himself, "Where is it? Where could it be??". Lenny's ears prick up. He might be able to gather some intel to gain favor with Grimdahl Tiger! He doesn't have to wait long. Salty seems to be lamenting that he can't find his "Lucky HorseShoe", anywhere, even after looking high and low, and in every nook and cranny. Lenny hesitates. Does he know enough to tell Grim? Just then, Salty returns to the kitchen, and Lenny makes a run for it out the back door.

He is pleased as punch with himself all the way back to the cottage at the edge of the Elven Forest.
