At Thorn Valley - Mr. Ages and Justin taught Woody how to climb - swim - and be talented. But after three days - Woody gets tired of being in Thorn Valley. At dawn - Jeremy gaved Woody a magic Umbrella to make it fly Woody back home to Andy's house. But as Woody and the Umbrella flew away from Thorn Valley - The Umbrella popped open and Woody fell into the trees.

But Jiminy came and taught Kaa a lesson by telling him never to come to this forest again. With Kaa gone - Elizabeth returned home. Buzz and Jeremy found Woody after their brief encounter with Dragon at a waterfall. Justin came and told Woody that he was glad that humans never find him or the rats.

The next day - Ratigan - his sidekick Fidget the Bat The Scientists of NIMH and some mouse gangsters came to the forest and got to The Stone Aged Castle.
