Three short stories are presented in the following order:
Jack vs. the Worm – Jack confronts a two-headed riddling worm that could grant his wish to return home. He answers a challenging riddle and allows himself to be eaten by the worm, only to learn the worm is not magical at all.
The Metal-Eaters – A family that feeds on metal tries to eat Jack’s sword. As Jack fights them, they are exposed as robots, who eat each other.
Jack, the Gargoyle and the Fairy – Jack attempts to rescue a fairy, who can only grant one wish, from a gargoyle who has trapped her in a pendant. After awakening and defeating the gargoyle, the fairy tells him that only the gargoyle knew the magic words to free her, so Jack wishes her free.
