Red and Wembley meet Skenfrith, a magical creature who appears to be whatever you believe he is. Skenfrith makes friends with the Fraggles, but when he hops into the basement of the Gorgs' Castle, the Gorgs think he's a monster -- so he becomes one.

Meanwhile, Doc tries to help Sprocket get over his fear of bugs.
