Plot

WCEp320(1)

After Valtor attacks the Fortress of Light, the Winx, their fellow classmates, Griselda and Faragonda, go there to see if they can discover his latest hiding place, leaving the pixies in charge of Alfea. Mainly because they believe that the Pixies are too small and thus, the mission is too dangerous for them.

Digit being told that she is too tiny for the mission.

In the forest, Zing, Glim and Livy are having fun zooming around but when they hear familiar voices, they hide and see Darcy and Stormy. The two of them are arguing with each other while trying to outdo one another for Valtor's affections. The two are then joined by Icy who appears uninterest and notes that there are other men out there besides Valtor, commenting that he is "way too cold and conniving". Her two sisters do not buy what she is saying pointing out the way she looks at him. They are also unaware that Valtor is observing them.

They continue arguing with each other when Darcy suggests finding a solution as to who gets Valtor. Icy of course, confidently suggests giving him to her. And out of anger and frustration, Stormy summons a small tornado which was strong enough to knock Glim onto the ground. She is noticed by the Trix and Stormy realizes that like all magical beings, the Pixies themselves also have ancient spells and charms. The Trix then decide to race for their collection, and the first to find where they are gets Valtor. Valtor finds this situation becoming more interesting.

Stormy then tries to get the other Pixies out of hiding by hurting Glim who retaliates by blasting at her eyes causing them to sting. Zing is able to save Glim and quickly tell Livy to get the Alfea Pixies to help. Livy heads there. While Zing and Glim are chased by the three unrestrained witches, Livy reaches the Alfea Pixies and tells them about the Trix's possible attack on Pixie Village to get their spells, who ever gets the spells first, also gets Valtor. The Pixies and Pixie pets then set out to save Zing and Glim. They then wound up fighting the Trix after Digit weakened Darcy by going super-small and tickling her.

Trivia

  • This episode is similar to the "Smurfs" series such as the Trix trying to catch the pixies is similar to Gargamel trying to grab the smurfs. Also the smurfs have similar personalities to some of the pixies: Livy bumping into things and forgetting stuff is like Clumsy, Amore is a counterpart to Smurfette due to their shy and sensitive personalities, Piff is similar to both Baby Smurf and Lazy Smurf for example like[Lazy she likes to sleep and like Baby Smurf is a baby. The Trix losing their temper when they fail to defeat, stop, catch or capture them and trying to use them for their own reasons and purposes is like Gargamel's.
  • Bloom appears wearing a different outfit only for this episode.
  • This is the second episode in which the pixies play a very large role in, the first being "Race Against Time". This episode, however, fully revolves around the pixies.
  • This episode is lighthearted in comparison to the somewhat darker tone of previous Season 3 episodes, with the Trix fighting for Valtor's affection and being defeated by the pixies.
  • Zing is referred by the name "Buzzy" in this episode.
  • Flora has no lines in this episode.
  • Icy recounts Season 2's events when she reminds Stormy of how they stole the Pixies' Codex thus causing them to relocate their village.

I'm sorry Kiko but you can't come, you're too tiny.

What's with people today?! You'd think we'd shrunk the way everyone keeps saying we're 'tiny'!
Digit,getting agitated.
Please, keep an on eye on Piff for me, okay?
Aisha
Well I don't know Layla (Aisha) you'd think we'd be able to handle that??
Digit, snapping at Aisha because she might be too tiny for it.
Come on sisters. What's happening to us? In all the time we've been together we've never been at each other's throats like this! There's gotta be a way to solve this dispute efficiently and peacefully.
Darcy
Sure! Let me have him! That's the only efficient and peaceful solution I can think of.
Icy
I say: whoever gets the Pixies' collection of spells first also gets Valtor! What do you think?

No! No! Please don't do that! I can't stand being tickled-ah-ha-ha!!

They're all trying so hard to impress me, flattering.
Valtor
Oopsy, I guess that I made them a little too big.

This game's over! ... This ridiculous contest is over, I need you for other, much more important upcoming battles.

In light of today's events and thanks to Digit's efforts we now know that Valtor still has the Agador Box. And that's quite an important find given today we learned nothing else!
