They drive their bowl-car to the woods and find a helpless box of the cereal, and the Evil Sorcerer floating towards it. Just as his shoots his magic ray at the cereal, Cin-a-Man deflects it with his magnificent leaf of magic repulsion, which bounces around and hits the Sorcerer turning him into a carrot.
