Arin and Aruzia
begin to make their way back to the Airship
wearing their Gutang disguises.
On the way, Teddy notices a building that looks just like the
on on the Map. The five of them go inside, and enter a huge room,
with no treasure. Just a big empty space. Grubby admits that
he doesn't see any treasure, just a lot of dust. But Teddy finds
On a far wall he sees the other half of
the medallion which he found with the map. When he puts the two
halves together they read:
Only the pure of spirit may find
the treasure of knowledge.
Gimmick is naturally facinated by these
words, and as he begins to wonder about the medallion, a bright
light begins to glow in the gem, and then it falls into Teddy
hands. A wall in the other end of the room raises up to reveal
none other than the Treasure of Grundo. Gimmick acknowledges
that Teddy is the rightful founder, but the Illiop disagrees,
admitting it belongs to all of them.
Grubby begins to wonder about what his
friends back home will say about "the richest Octopede in
all of Rillonia".
Suddenly, a bright light shines through
the ceiling and raises a large pedistal. On it are six spaces.
In each of those spaces, Gimmick realizes are gems which are
shaped like crystal. As each of
the individual crystals rise, they read a special message to
the one who is holding it: a description of their personality
Gimmick's says: Imagination.
Grubby's says: Honesty.
Prince Arin's reads: Bravery.
Princess Aruzia's says: Trust.
Teddy's says none other than: Friendship.
The final crystal rises in the center of
the pedistal to all of them reading: Freedom.
Suddenly, an alarm sounds, and they realize
the Gutangs have found out that Princess Aruzia has been removed
from her cell. They must now hurry to the Airship before they
are captured. Grubby reluctantly leaves the Treasure behind,
but takes a small gem so he is not totally disappointed. The
rest manage to escape with the six crystals they had found.
They make their way through the city, without
their disguises on, and finally find where they had "parked"
the Airship. Unfortunately, they are spotted by a Gutang who
calls on his companions to join him in his attack against the
adventurers. As spears begin to fly at them, they hastily board
the waiting Ship.
As they lift off, a Gutang begins to scream
for the rest to take their battle stations. Without warning,
the Gutangs begin to board small one-passenger aircraft. Only
these smaller than the Airship, making them faster, not to mention
they are armed with harpoon guns in the front of the craft.
The adventurers prepare themselves for
the battle ahead, without weaponary of their own. Suddenly Teddy
tells Grubby to bring out the Root Stew he'd made earlier. In
a somewhat questionable manner, Grubby agrees to do so. Teddy
takes out the slings he and Prince Arin had made earlier and
puts a spoonful of stew into the sling. He draws it back and
lets it fly, hitting the wheeling propeller on the Gutang airplane.
The stickiness causes the propeller to stop turning, and therefore,
sends it to the ground as the Gutang bails out in his parachute.
The others join in the battle, as Princess
Aruzia recieves orders from Gimmick to take over fuelling the
furnace with wood.
The Root Stew continues to fly into the
propellers and faces of the Gutang pilots and their planes. More
and more planes make their way off the launching platform and
into the air. As they do, one Gutang orders his men to bring
out "the rock". Gutangs begin pushing out a giant catapult
carrying a huge, enormous boulder in it. The head Gutang pulls
a lever and fires the rock, which crashes into the Airship and
knocks out their propeller, forcing them to stop in mid-air.
The Gutang then orders them to bring on the grapling hook which
is fired and manages to catch the Airship in the giant crack
where the propeller used to be. The Gutangs then begin to wheel
in the Airship and Gimmick is certain all is lost as the others
continue to fight the dangerous craft which continues to circle
Prince Arin attempts to cut the rope which
is attached to the hook, but is unsuccessful, because it is made
of pure metal!
Next, a Gutang fighter manages to shoot
his arrows at the Airship, nailing the mast and making a sort
of ladder to go up to the airbag, and one arrow actually HITS
the airbag, sending the hot air out into the sky. Teddy takes
a spoonful of Root Stew and begins to climb the ladder, just
as the fighter comes back in and shoots another arrow, just missing
Teddy. He climbs onto the airbag and slaps the Root Stew on the
leaking hole. The Root Stew makes the perfect patch!
Suddenly, they notice someone climbing
up the Treacherous Mountain. As they look closer, they can make
out a familliar, purplish creatureWooly! He climbs his way
to the launching platform and begins smashing up the Gutang airplanes.
This gives the Airship crew enough time to knock out the rest
of the aircraft.
As one more craft starts to circle them,
Teddy demands one more spoonful of Root Stew. Grubby nervously
reports that there is no more Root Stew! The aircraft continues
to circle as the Airship continues it's journey back to the Hard-to-Find
The aircraft makes one more round and comes
in near the launching platform. But the Wooly What's-It would
not let the plane get near the Airship. He jumped clear off the
launching platform and onto the airplane. The disoriented pilot
tried to maneuver the aircraft, but ended up sending it into
the wire of the grapling hook, cutting straight through it! The
airplane with Wooly on it fell into the valley way down below
the mountain, breaking into a million pieces.
Meanwhile, Tweeg and L.B. continue to search
for the Treasure. They find the room which the Treasure had been
in and Tweeg is overjoyed when he sees the heaps and piles of
gold, jewels, diamonds and rubies. So overjoyed, he begins to
sing about how much fun it is to be rich.
The crew manage to land the Airship near
Wooly and begin to grieve of their companion as Gimmick attempts
to deliver the eulogy. Teddy pardons him, and Princess Aruzia
kisses the creature and thanks his lifeless body for his heroic
efforts. Just then, Wooly rises and declares that he is alright.
When asked if he would like a reward, he claims he got his.
"I got kissed by a real, live Princess!"
Then Arin turns to Teddy, Grubby and Gimmick
and tells them that their reward may be anything in the kingdom.
But Teddy declines, saying they didn't rescue Aruzia for a reward.
Princess Aruzia offers the crystals they've found as their reward,
and they humbly accept.
The five of them remember the Treasure
they had left behind, just as Grubby brings out his little samplewhich
suddenly disappears in his hand!
Back at the Treacherous Mountain, Tweeg
and L.B. have begun to remove the Treasure from it's room. As
they do, Tweeg requests the help of his bounder companion, asking
him to use his head. L.B. charges head first at the chest which
Tweeg is holding, only to have it disappear and run into Tweeg
himself! The two fall of the steps of the entrance and Tweeg
begins to cry, both of sorrow, and of pain.
Meanwhile, Teddy Ruxpin, Grubby the Octopede,
Newton Gimmick, Prince Arin and Princess Aruzia are making their
way through Grundo, trying to find their home. Aruzia jumps for
joy as she sees her father's castle in the distance. Teddy proudly
where's the medallion around his neck and finally understands
"Only the Pure of Spirit,
May Find the Treasure of Knowledge".
