Kirby segment[edit]

The tea party.

In the beginning, Kirby finds a small dog who has lost his mother. Kirby sets off to help the dog, coming across a girl, a bug, and the moon, which tells him that King Dedede might have the dog's mother. After going to Dedede's Castle, he finds Dedede, who is just putting a bandage on the mother's paw. Mother and son are reunited and the four of them have a tea party together.
