Plot: A meeting of the Pixie parliament is called in order to discuss how to best defeat their lifelong adversary, Gypsy the Cat. Gypsy has been lurking by the entrance to the Pixie headquarters to take unsuspecting Pixies by surprise and win herself a delicious lunch.
The leaders of the various Pixie factions each present a plan to defeat their nemesis. The warrior faction opts to attack the vicious cat with full force, while the cunning gatherers propose luring her into a trap with food. The artist faction presents the idea of sprinkling Gypsy with Pixie dust thereby eliminating her predatory skills as she floats through the air. However, this plan is soon dismantled as further discussion leads to the discovery that the artists used the remainder of their Pixie dust supplies to create a floating marshmallow masterpiece.
As the debate continues, the Pixie parliament is suddenly attacked by Gypsy the Cat, who discovered their whereabouts by following their squeaky voices.
