Episode Summary

Spoiler alert: The following section contains plot-specific details.(Skip Section)

On an island in the middle of the ocean, two sisters are singing on a flower in harmony. While this is happening, a giant caterpillar is feeding on the local trees and listening to their singing. When the the sisters finish their song, the sky mysteriously turns dark and a giant hand grabs the sisters. When the caterpillar realizes they're gone, he lets out a cry.

Meanwhile at the castle, when King Dedede wonders why no one is on duty, he finds the Waddle Dees sneezing. He goes to Waddle Doo and asks why no one is working. Waddle Doo tells him that 'the Waddle Dees all have stuffy heads'. Escargoon comes in saying he has a head cold too. After he is told this, Dedede wonders why he is not sneezing. Escargoon suggests that the sickness may be a cold, but then he sneezes into Waddle Doo.

Changes in the dub

  • Inside Chef Kawasaki's restaurant, the several kanjis on the wall was airbrushed out.
  • In the Japanese dub, the pollen that the mayor and chief Bookem spectate in the microscope showed the pollen moving in random directions. In the English dub, the pollen does not move for unknown reasons.
  • The scene where the Waddle Dees are trying to catch up with King Dedede from a long distance was removed from the English dub due to time restraints.



  • The song that the Island Sisters sing is remixed in Kirby Mass Attack. The track is called "Lifted Upward" in that game; it is also used as part of "Desert Scorcher," another track from the game. It is directly recycled in the "More Dig and Dash" track in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.
  • The episode is a reference to a 1961 movie called "Mothra"
