Synopsis:
Magical Moe has arrived by bicycle from space and is wreaking havoc. When the Fat Fury tries to take him on, Magical Moe learns that he can take away the special properties of lollipops to disable the Fat Fury. Herbie goes to the Unknown with help from his animal friends and enrolls in the Academy of Magic and Hocus-Pocus. Herbie receives only half a diploma and returns to Earth where Fat Fury is half successful with his magic. Unable to stop Magical Moe, the plump lump drops in at a museum where he sees ancient lollipops, including hard-to-get cinnamon, a flavor so rare that Magical Moe had not removed its powers. Revived (even fatter and more furious than ever), the Fat Fury allega-poops it to Magical Moe.
