Mavis tells the gnome to be careful of Evil Edna, because she is wicked. The gnome ignores Mavis and carries on walking through the woods.

Meanwhile the gnome meets into Evil Edna. Edna has disguised herself as a camera and asks the gnome to pose for her, he agrees and she gives him a fishing rod. As he poses with the fishing rod in his hands she casts an evil spell on him turning him into stone.
Edna now plans on selling him as a garden ornament.
Moments later Arthur and Mavis run into the statue of the gnome.
