Hard Times at the Huskin' Bee.
Beatrice, a talking bluebird, joins the brothers and their frog after they help her out of a bush. The trio arrive in a strange town, Pottsfield, that appears to be deserted. They find that the town is holding their annual harvest festival in a barn, which is disrupted by their arrival. The residents, who seem to be living pumpkins, sentence the trio to a few hours of manual labour. After being freed, the brothers decide to follow Beatrice to a woman named Adelaide, who she claims can help them get home.
