Out hunting in the jungle with his spear, African native boy Inki keeps narrowly missing his prey: a parrot, a giraffe, even a butterfly. Then there's that weird black bird with the syncopated hop who keeps popping up out of nowhere, only to disappear mysteriously once again. Back to big game hunting, Inki puts his ear to the ground, not noticing the ferocious lion sneaking up on him.
"John's First Love? The Tomboy Appears"
"Jon no Hatsu Koi? Otenbamusume Arawareru" (ジョンの初恋？おてんば娘現れる) February 12, 1989
John is sick and tired of doing chores in the treehouse, and complains about having to wash the floor while Peter Pan amuses himself all day. He decides to join the pirates, on a whimsical suggestion from Tinker Bell. As he heads towards the ship, he meets the Indian princess Tiger Lily (in a rather violent encounter). She offers to present him to the Captain. On the pirate ship, Hook has sent off all the pirates to shore to celebrate his mother’s birthday in peace. When John boards the ship, Hook is less than pleased with the aspiring buccaneer, and assigns him to wash the deck (John is, apparently, destined for cleaning jobs). Tiger Lily, who has sneaked onto the ship after John, suddenly attacks Hook from behind with a knife, intending to kill him. Luckily for Hook, Cecco returns and distracts the girl enough for Hook to subdue her. Tiger Lily, and John as her conspirator, are cast into the man-made sandpit for their insolence. Only Peter Pan can save them from here, but he does it without even flying.
In this George Pal Puppetoon (production number U5-6), John Henry (voice of Rex Ingram), legendary figure of American folklore, goes to work for the C.& O. Railroad, which, shortly thereafter, buys an automatic steel-driving engine, called the Inky-Poo. John Henry matches his strength against the Inky-Poo, saying that any man can beat a machine because a man has a mind. John Henry wins, but drops at the finish, never to rise again. The choral music background is by the Luvenia Nash Singers.
Jem stars in Howard Sands' new movie, part of the prize she and the Holograms won in the Battle of the Bands. But Pizzazz convinces her father to buy the movie studio that is making the film and give ownership to Eric who quickly seizes control of the film and adds the Misfits to the cast. Eric places the focus of the film on the Misfits and Jem and the Holograms are relegated to supporting roles. Finally fed up with the Misfits' disruptive and tyrannical behavior, Jem and the Holograms, along with Video, quit the movie. But Jerrica receives shocking news about Starlight Girl Ba Nee, who has been diagnosed with a rare optical condition that will leave her blind within a matter of months.

"Captain Hook Greatly Hates the Sound of the Sewing Machine!"
"Fukku Senchō wa Mishin no Oto ga Dai Kirai!" (フック船長はミシンの音が大嫌い！) February 5, 1989
While Peter ‘modestly’ presents his flying abilities to John and Michael, Tink decides to prove to the two gullible boys that Peter can also turn day to night. After Tink persuades them to close their eyes, Peter hangs a blanket above them. It doesn’t take long for John to understand the prank that was played on him, but when he does come out from under the covers, Wendy is already enraged. After the lost boys fight over who gets to bring the blanket to her to stitch it up, Wendy tells them about a marvelous machine that makes sewing easy and quick. Slightly instantly goes to try building the contraption with Curly, but neither of them knows what such a machine even looks like. They really lose hope after Wendy inadvertently tells them that a sewing machine can’t be made solely from wood. But Slightly is determined. Meanwhile, Hook gets very irritated by Smee’s off-key singing about mothers as he is sewing—mothers being a touchy emotional subject for the captain. Smee is sequestered off to shore to continue his chore, which presents Slightly and Curly with the perfect opportunity to see a sewing machine in action. But, although Smee is more grandfather than pirate, Hook’s crew arrive on shore just as the two lost boys get comfortable.
Porky is a tourist. He's missed the main camel, so he rents one of his own. Both of them are soon overcome by the hot desert sun; the camel starts hallucinating, and marches off, playing the bagpipes. Porky sees the camel swimming in a pool, but it turns out to be a mirage. The camel eventually recovers enough to bring both of them back to town, where Porky goes mad.
At the Katnip Kollege, we see a roomful of cats taking a course in Swingology. Everyone swings except Johnny, who can't cut it and has to sit in the dunce chair. Miss Kitty Bright tells him to look her up when he learns how to swing. Finally, listening to the pendulum clock at night, Johnny gets the beat. He rushes out to where everyone is playing and sings "Easy As Rollin' Off a Log" to Kitty Bright. She joins in; he grabs a trumpet for an instrumental break, with the complete band. They both fall off a log; she covers him with kisses.
Bugs is reading The Song of Hiawatha out loud to himself and the saga turns real as a pint-sized, Elmer Fudd-like Hiawatha (minus the speech impediment) turns up, paddling his canoe. Hiawatha is looking for a rabbit for his dinner. Hiawatha manages to trick Bugs into thinking he is preparing a hot bath for him. It is actually a cooking pot, which Bugs quickly vacates once Hiawatha casually mentions that he is having rabbit stew for supper.
As with Elmer, Bugs spends the rest of the cartoon tormenting his would-be devourer, who finally breaks his arrows in anger and disgust, and paddles his canoe away while Bugsy finishes his reading of the poem. However, in the closing gag, the miffed-looking Hiawatha suddenly returns to the foreground where Bugs is reading the narrative, and after a second of wordless staring at each other, Hiawatha gives Bugs the "insulting kiss" that the Bunny usually bestows on others. Hiawatha then paddles away again, as Bugs "spits out" the kiss.
The Killer Diller Boys, three nasty banditos, come to town and kill the sheriff. The Lonesome Stranger (and his horse, Sliver), get a telegram, delivered by an Indian from Western Onion, telling them. (The Indian has "The Vanishing American" printed on his back, so of course, he vanishes.) They ride into town, where the gang is shooting up the bar. Stranger tries to sneak in, but they sneak behind him and steal his guns; he ends up tied to a barrel of gunpowder as the bad guys ride off to rob the stagecoach (announced by another telegram). Lonesome keeps calling for his horse, who is also tied up; the gunpowder goes off like a rocket, sending him crashing right into the gang (and stripping off his pants).
