Ostracized, Weedle sets out to find a three-headed companion, called Marvella, Maxuma, Marmaduke…Mr M.! Together they hatch a plan for revenge on those who hurt them. After taking revenge, Weedle feels so bad that he cries. And to everyone’s amazement, his tears are full of vibrant colors, proving that he had it within himself all the time.
