Plot

At the start, Sticks is down at a river fishing for something when she looks up and sees a Cross Eyed Moose. She panics and runs to alert the others. Meanwhile, the other members of Team Sonic are trying to see who can hold their breath the longest when Sticks arrives. She says that since she saw the moose, she and her friends are cursed by the "Curse of the Cross Eyed Moose". Knuckles comes short of breaking his record and Amy's vase breaks, indicating the curse. Later, everyone notices that Sticks has surrounded their houses with traps, in order to protect them.

A short time later, the gang goes to Sticks' Burrow to ask the badger what they need to do in order to break the curse. She tells them that a mystical marmoset with a white stripe on his back and a tail shaped like a "W" can reverse it. The team decides to look for him, and Sticks leads them through the woods.

Finally, they arrive at the marmoset's residence, but he brushes Team Sonic off, telling them he doesn't break curses anymore. However, Sticks pleads him to help, and he complies but with one catch: the team has to prove themselves worthy by doing some tasks. It turns out that the tasks are making guacamole and doing Monkey-Boy's laundry. While Team Sonic is doing this, Eggman comes to the residence and asks to make the marmoset his servant. Monkey-Boy goes back inside to think, and Eggman summons his robots to surround the house.

Team Sonic finishes their chores and then see the robots. Quickly, the team attacks, and Sticks rescues Monkey-Boy from danger. After Eggman leaves, Monkey-Boy thanks Team Sonic for saving his life and offers to break the curse as a reward. While walking back home, Sticks sees a mauve-colored seven legged spider and panics that the team is cursed again. Sticks says they must now go to Lake Yenny Haha, but Knuckles flicks the spider away, much to everyone's relief.
