in Cappy Town. That night, he gives a curse to everyone who received a doll making them say Dedede is great and amazing. They are all shocked by this. Dedede puts another curse and gets everyone to put money in the doll, then again, put all their money in the doll. Dedede opens a bank and everyone deposits their money. Meta Knight goes to Tiff and asks if she put the doll by her bedside. She wonders why he asks, so that night, she does not put it by her bedside, and Dedede again curses the dolls to beat every resident in Cappy Town. Escargoon hates the doll, so he punches it, which makes Dedede feels punched. Escargoon hits the doll again, which prompts Dedede to go to Customer Service, and he says that the dolls and Dedede are synchronized - whatever happens to Dedede or the doll, it happens to the other. He recalls Kirby's playing with the doll dealt a great deal of pain to Dedede, and when Dedede later finds out all the residents of the town took back their deposits, he gets mad, and goes on a rampage to hurt whoever that still has the doll. Kirby gets beaten by the doll, so Kawasaki digs a hole, and buries the doll. A mole bites the buried doll, which causes Dedede to start swinging his hammer about. Tokkori tells Kirby that a thing like the doll can be inhaled, so Kirby inhales the doll. Tokkori then asks him to copy the ability, but he gets nothing. Dedede himself floats into the sky and into space.

Trivia

  • This episode has a small parody of the movie, "2001: A Space Odyssey". After Dedede is shown floating aimlessly in space, a giant Dedede Doll in a bubble is shown.
  • What happens to Dedede at the end of the episode suggests that Kirby's food ends up somewhere in space after being eaten, or that Kirby's stomach is like another dimension.
