When Starfire suggests getting something to eat, Ash offers to make some strawberry pies that Emperor X taught him how to make. Axel, Larxene and Xion decide that they will go get some wild strawberries that grow in a nearby forest. But while they are away, they are found and captured by Marluxia...and a now evil Emperor X!
Back at base, Cosmo gives an overdue greeting to Mickey, who evidently was a foster father to Cosmo after she had run away from the Anime Empire where she used to live. Cosmo's other foster father was Mickey's long lost brother, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who was taken captive by Universal Studios.
Zoey wonders if Oswald could be in the mysterious Cartoon Wasteland, but before anyone can leave to look, Emperor X shows up with a group of dangerous villains that had been imprisoned by the heroes long ago, but have now been freed by Omega Shenron!
