The Happy Tree Friends are sitting down for a show at a birthday party. They get dazzled by the appearance of Lumpy the magician. Lumpy pulls a bird out of his hat, only to find that it is fake. He kicks it away, then asks for a volunteer. Cuddles decides to take part in the act. Lumpy gets a box ready, and Cuddles jumps in the box. He saws Cuddles in half, but this turns out to injure him. Cuddles and Lumpy end up in an ambulance. As Lumpy lays on the doors, they fly open. Lumpy grabs on Cuddles' lower half as it flies out with Lumpy grabbing Cuddles' legs. He pulls on Cuddles' spinal cord, causing his front half to leave the ambulance. They end up at a hospital. Now, in an emergency room, Cuddles is stitched up with his blood being collected in an IV tank. Lumpy decides to entertain Cuddles with some tricks. First, he pulls a bouquet of roses out of his hat. After this, he pulls out a newspaper, but doesn't know what to put in it. He finds the IV tank containing Cuddles' blood and removes it from its hanger. He squeezes the blood into the newspaper and makes it disappear. Unfortunately, this trick made Cuddles pass out from blood loss. Shocked at what happened, Lumpy gets a potion and throws it on the ground, leaving a cloud of green smoke. However, it turns out that the potion made Lumpy fall on the floor, with his body being set on fire.
