Patsy, the greedy spider, is holding Emma captive in her web. While everyone in the forest has searched in vain for Emma, only the irrepressible elf, Cheets, can see her. Given his reputation, no one believes Cheets when he claims to have found her. Cheets cannot hear what Emma is trying to tell him and she must use Charades to relay vital news concerning the enchanted forest. Hazard, the Lord of the Underworld is selling the forest to developers.
