  • The map to Rockfoot City
    At the end of Episode 21, Captain Snap gives Happi a map! This is what it looks like. The path would hav taken Happi through the forests, into Rockfoot City and up the mountain. And maybe even to outer space...
  • Rosey Posey
    Rosey Posey is the Princess of the Petali Kingdom, and Episodes 22-24 would have been her story. Here are some of the characters from Petali, including the Queen Rose, and Rosey's nanny.
  • Rosey's Story
    The Petali Kingdom has cactus looking soldiers, who ride around in giant flower-horses. Somewhere in the story, Eclair gets to wear a knight's armour!

    Happiness would have made more friends when she visits the forest around Seashell Bay. From left - Pampam and Popo the fruit siblings, Baby Jo, who has wandered away from his mother, and Bruno the bear who thinks he's a duck.
  • Frostbite
    At the top of the mountain, Happi would meet Frostbite, the vampire penguin!
  • Space and Beyond!
    If Happi made it to space, she would have had a grand adventure among the stars with her new friends Starriness Chan, U.F.Ro, Ultrabot (He's baaack!) and a baby alien. And she would have returned to Earth with an ability that she did not have before... but that is a story yet to be told!
