Synopsis
Pierre provides an army of cavemen to do the lumberjack work for Big Nick but Nick is uneasy about it as these "men" can only work at night and crave chocolate bars for their pay. The Twister suddenly appears on the scene and warns the two to release the enslaved cavemen or pay the price for not doing so. But the two won't listen and when The Twister intervenes, he is overcome by the brute strength of the cavemen and tied to a tree. Freeing himself from the tree by using his Air Gun, he permanently seals the cavemen in their cave and destroys Big Nick's logging operation.
