In the last episode, Aunt Rivette flies King Bud and Princess Fluff to the land of Ix, in hopes of receiving help from Queen Zixi in overcoming the Roly-Rogue invaders. Zixi, now reformed into a truly good witch, reveals that she stole the real magic cloak, and left it behind in the lilac grove. She offers to help the children retrieve it and take back their kingdom. In return, Fluff happily offers to help Zixi use the cloak to grant her wish of looking young and beautiful in mirror reflections. But first, they must stay for a royal feast.
