There are some little people with a big problem in the Land of the Unfriendly Giants. Wizard Whitebeard sends Waldo off to find three puzzling clues that will end the giants’ reign of terror. Waldo and Woof set out to stop the unfriendly giants, lead by J. Archibald Barrington III (or Archie for short). Waldo follows clues all over the village as he works to solve the Wizard’s riddle, and in the end Waldo is able to teach the townsfolk to stand up for themselves. The episode erupts with a massive battle, when the little people strike back with their tricks and traps. Waldo finally solves the Wizard’s riddle, and finds a way to stop the giants for good.
This episode was based off the illustration “The Unfriendly Giants” from The Great Waldo Search.
