While browsing through the forest, Wickets father Deej falls over
a treetrunk, and falls into a tree covered with a strange mushroom-type growth.
Deej comes in contact with it, and becomes very ill. A strange creature called
a Gupin, who happened to be in the neighborhood, caused the whole ordeal,
and was blamed for it.
The Ewoks go to Lograys hut, where Logray tells Wicket about several
ingredients that he has to gather, that will serve as a cure for Lograys
illness. Wicket and his brother goofy brother Willy, along with their oldest
brother Weechee, split up and go look for the ingredients.
Willy finds his ingredient, a feather in an enormous birds nest, first,
but gets caught in the birds nest. While Wicket is searching for the
star urchin (the ingredient he has to look for), he finds the Gupin tied
to a tree, captured by several odd-looking creatures. Wicket frees the Gupin,
and the two escape together. Coincidentally, Wicket finds the star urchin
at the same time. After that, Weechee starts for his ingredient behind a
waterfall, but falls into the water. Logray sees that Weechee and Willy are
in trouble through his crystal ball, and sends Wicket, Teebo,
and the Gupin to save them.
They save Willy, and then immediately go on to save Weechee. They get him
out of the water, but then they are surrounded by a bunch of gator-like creatures
called frosch. The Gupin magically transforms himself into a
big bird, and flies Willy, Wicket, and Weechee away from the frosch. They
are just in time to give Logray the ingredients to save Deej, and barely
