Summary

Having traveled to England in the late 1940's through the Digiport, the Digimon Squad: Tamed Edition, the Dragon Ball Gang, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the young dinosaurs meets and befriends James Henry Trotter, a young boy who is dreaming of going to New York City for his vacation and destiny to visit the Empire State Building, but is hold captive by his terrible aunts and the Wario Bros. after his parents are killed by the mysterious rhinoceros. Then after being given a gift of the magical crocodile tongues which then cause the single peach to grow into its giant size, the heroes help James make friends with the bugs, overcome his greatest fears and reach for New York as his only hope of making his new wish of freedom come true.

Plot

In the year 1948 in the 20th century, James Henry Trotter is living a happy life with his parents by the sea in England (connected with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in one single country called the United Kingdom). On James' 8th birthday, the Trotters plan to go on vacation to New York City and visit the Empire State Building, the tallest building in the world. However, his parents are killed by getting eaten by a ghostly rhinoceros from the sky and James finds himself living with his two ignorant and cruel aunts, Spiker and Sponge, on the lonely hill in Dover. Assisting the two selfish ladies are the Wario Bros. (Wario and Waluigi), greedy and troublesome siblings of the Mario Bros. (Mario and Luigi), who were teleported in time from the Mushroom Kingdom (also referred to as Planet Mushroom) to Earth via Time Hole (from Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time) by King Koopa (also known as Bowser) in association with Pretorius, the Shredder and Krang's Foot Clan organization and other villains who are already beaten by the first three squadron of Digimon led by Shoutmon, Agumon and Veemon along with their other allies from other worlds and time periods. The four villains beat James and force him to work all day like a restless servant. When they learn that he is still wanting to go to New York, Sponge, Spiker and the Wario Bros. forbid James to leave. They remind him of his parents' death by the rhino, and after Wario and Waluigi reveal their secret to be from the Mushroom Kingdom, and assignments from the Koopas and other villains, they threatened to turn James to the rhino (that would resemble Rocksteady) or let the Wario Bros. summon the reincarnated Rhinoblaster as an assistant trophy to execute him if he tries to get away from them, and destroyed the travel book.

Later that evening, as James is sent to bed by his aunts and the Wario Bros. who are eating dinner, he is greeted by the fourth squadron of Digimon (or Digital Monsters), the Digi-Squad: Tamed Edition (Guilmon, Renamon, Terriermon, Lopmon, Impmon, Leomon, Monodramon, Guardromon, MarineAngemon and Calumon), the Dragon Ball Gang (Goku, Yamcha, Bulma, Oolong and Puar), the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo), Team Experiment (Stitch, Yuna Kamihara, Taro, Dr. Jumba Jookiba, Agent Pleakley, Reuben, Kijimunaa, Bojo, Sparky, Felix, Angel, Hull, Husk, Foxy, Beige and Pilolo) and the dinosaurs (including Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, Spike, Chomper and Ruby from the Great Valley and Denver the Last Dinosaur from California), who also arrived on the hill earlier. After introducing themselves, the five teams of heroes reveal their duties to protect the universe including the Earth, the Digital World and the Dragon World (another Earth) from Pretorius, the Foot Clan, the Pilaf Gang, the Koopas, The Villains of the Disney Universe including Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel and other enemies. They said to James that they have come from the future through the Digiport on a mission to help James make his wish come true by taking him to New York, just like from their times with Littlefoot and his friends' relatives: Rex, Elsa, Woog and Dweeb. At the same time, James also befriends a lonely spider which he finds at his window.

Next early morning, after rescuing the spider from being squashed by his aunts and the Wario Bros., James and the heroes meets a mysterious old man in a military uniform along with their mentors and guides, Gennai, Master Roshi with Krillin and Captain Neweyes with Vorb and the dinosaurs of Green Meadow (Dink, Amber, Scat, Shyler, Flapper). The man gives James a bag of magic green "crocodile tongues" to make his life better and instructs him not to lose them. Roshi and Neweyes welcomes Krillin and the Green Meadow dinosaurs back to their other friends (with Dink, Littlefoot and Denver expanding their one whole team under the same name Dinosaurs), and they, Vorb, Gennai and the man disappears. When they are returning to the house, James trips and the crocodile tongues escape into the ground despite the best efforts of he, the Digi-Squad, the Dragon Ball Gang, the Turtles, Team Experiment and the Dinosaurs. Then, right after Spiker and Sponge confront James and the Wario Bros. recognize the Digi-Squad and the turtles along with the Dragon Ball Gang, Team Experiment and the dinosaurs as their new friends, the magic of the crocodile tongues also transforms a peach on a withered old tree into enormous proportions much to the amazement of James and all the heroes and villains. Later, Spiker and Sponge sell the visitors tickets to view the giant peach and Wario and Waluigi act like mascot costumed characters to greet them, intending to have and share the British money (pounds, shillings and pence) while James is sadly watching from the window. Feeling sorry for James, the five hero teams form a plan to help James steal back the peach.

That night, James and the heroes were sent by the aunts and the Wario Bros. to pick up garbage left behind by the crowd. While doing so, they find the last crocodile tongue in the same bag which is revealed to be the one that James made into a hot air balloon for his late parents the other night, but are unable to catch it. James and most of the heroes then each grab a chunk of the peach to eat, just as the crocodile tongue returned and jumped into the boy's own piece, resulting it to be swallowed by him after a bite. Then a large hole revealing a doorway appears in the same spot, and while the heroes in MarineAngemon's Kahuna Waves which then shrinks them to the size of a mouse follow him, James craws up the tunnel where he is even transformed into a stop motion form by the crocodile tongue's magical power. They find and befriend a group of life-size anthropomorphic bugs (Mr. Grasshopper, Mr. Centipede, Earthworm, Miss Spider, Mrs. Ladybug, and Glowworm), also under the spell of the crocodile tongues. The insects reveal that they have the same desire as James of going to New York, and also get to know the heroes on a mission to help the boy get there. As everyone then hears Spiker, Sponge, Wario and Waluigi search for James and the heroes, Mr. Centipede cuts the stem connecting the peach to the tree, and the giant-sized fruit rolls away to the Atlantic Ocean with Goku following it on Nimbus after seemingly killing Spiker and Sponge by crushing their car along with them for good while sparing the Wario Bros. However, at that time, Sponge and Spiker have survived. Meanwhile in Edge City, the hometown of Stanley Ipkiss (also known as the Mask), Pretorius, the Foot Clan, Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel and the Koopas receive an emergency communication from the Wario Bros, who told them that the Digimon, Goku, the Turtles and their friends have escaped them, Sponge and Spiker. Infuriated by the Wario Bros.'s failure to stop the five hero teams, Pretorius, King Koopa and the Shredder wishes that they should summon some monsters (kaiju) to eliminate them easily rather than going out and find them themselves. Maleficent teleports to three villains and announces she will help them. Using her magic, the evil fairy resurrected four monsters in the size of an ordinary human: Dracolon from the Planet Gargoyle, along with Bemular, Ragon and Jirass, who were previously destroyed by Ultraman from the Nebula M78's Land of Light in the 40th Gallaxy and the Giant Robot (originally built for world domination by Emperor Guillotine and his Gargoyle Gang, but used for good against them by Johnny Sokko and the Unicorn Branch Organization of Japan) in the past. The villains thanks Maleficent who then disappears back to the Disney Villains' council, and then sends the monsters to find the Digi-Squad and their friends destroy them, and bring James and the peach back to his aunts and the Wario Bros.

Coming out of the giant peach the next morning, James, the bugs, the Digi-Squad, the Dragon Ball Gang, the Turtles, the Dinosaurs and Team Experiment find themselves in the middle of the ocean. Remembering his dream to visit New York City after finding his magically restored travel book which shows a drawing of the peach, James, the insects and the heroes decide to go there with Mr. Centipede steering the gigantic fruit. Bulma suggest that they should use any of her capsules for the jet to fit the whole group, but Stitch use the magic from the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella (1950 Disney film) to make his larger spaceship appear to get himself and the others aboard while the Digimon, the turtles and the dinosaurs decide to stay on the peach with Goku on the Flying Nimbus. They also use Miss Spider's silk to capture and tie a hundred seagulls to the stem of the peach. But at the same time, the five hero teams, the bugs and James went battling against a giant robotic along with Dracolon, Bemular, Ragon and Jirass (now in their giant size). After James, the Bugs, the Digimon, Goku and Puar (in forms of Ultraman and Giant Robot) destroy the five ruthless monsters, everyone then took off for their flight to New York. As their adventure continues through evening, James, the bugs and the heroes were starving, but they learn that the giant peach is "the whole ship made of food" and enjoys eating some of it to satisfy their appetites. Luckily, even Stitch's ship has a whole barrels and crates of ordinary peaches which Team Experiment and the Dragon Ball Gang also have for their snacks. Later that night, while everyone on Stitch's spaceship and the peach were asleep that night, Miss Spider, tucking James along with Calumon in bed with her silk web, reveals to him that she was the spider he saved from Spiker, Sponge and the Wario Bros. Back in Edge City, after seeing that the Digimon, Goku and their friends have taken out the monsters, Pretorius, the Foot Clan and the Koopas would not take another defeat by a long shot. Koopa and his Koopalings then teleport back to the Mushroom Kingdom to find another trick in the book to slow down the Digi-Squad and their friends.

Meanwhile, the sleeping James has a nightmare involving him as a caterpillar being chased by the Wario Bros. (in their Hammer Bro. costumes) and his aunts (dressed as a skeleton and a turkey) who then sprayed an aerosol insecticide which then shape-shift into a rhino to destroy him, but wakes up the next morning after some snowflakes unexpectedly fall on him as well as the Digimon, the Turtles and the Dinosaurs. It turns out that they, the insects, the Dragon Ball Gang and Team Experiment find themselves in the Arctic. The insects were upset for Mr. Centipede has fallen asleep while keeping watch, but the heroes in Stitch's ship were able to stay awake to find out what was happening and revealed that the ship has a invisible heating shield to keep it warm and high on power. And when he is asked how he would see the world, Mr. Centipede confesses that he lived between two pages of the National Geographic magazine. Furious by this, the bugs exiled Mr. Centipede on the stairs of the giant peach for his stupidity, but after hearing Mr. Grasshopper and James wishing they had a compass and in order to correct his mistake, Mr. Centipede jumps off the peach into the icy water below and searches a sunken ship for a compass. He succeeded finding the compass, but is taken prisoner by pirate skeletons (including the captain resembling Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas and a crew-mate impersonating Donald Duck) and Bowser's skeletal version of his Koopa Troopas, the Dry Bones, also teleported from the Mushroom Kingdom using the Time Hole as his new strategy. James, Miss Spider, Guilmon, Renamon, Terriermon, Lopmon, Impmon, Leomon, MarineAngemon, Goku, Krillin, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Stitch, Yuna, Kijimunna, Littlefoot, Cera, Chomper and Dink rescue him, and they all defeat the pirates and the Dry Bones before returning to safety on the peach and Stitch's spaceship. The bugs make up in thanking Mr. Centipede for doing his right, the seagulls are defrosted and the journey continues with the compass in their possession.

That night, after a little entertaining music with Mr. Grasshopper, the whole group finally reach New York City, but a storm appears, along with the ghostly rhino that ate James' parents and has returned to finish the boy off for good. To make things even more worse, the compass is knocked off the peach's stem and lost. The Digimon digivolve to their ultimate and mega levels with Gallantmon summoning and riding on Grani to hold off the rhino, and Goku on the Flying Nimbus and the others in Stitch's ship join in while MarineAngemon protect the other Digimon, the turtles and the dinosaurs with her Kahuna Waves, but they weren't strong enough to fight it as the cloudy creature swats the heroes and damages the ship with lightning, causing it to lose power. James is frightened at the rhino's true form as a boogeyman in disguise after getting the bugs to safety on the strings holding the flying seagulls, but with encouragement from the heroes and Earthworm to use his pain of loss and the option of "looking another way" just like his parents said so before in order to avenge them, he confronts the rhino and yells at it, "I'M NOT AFRAID OF YOU!". The rhino was then killed by James courage-filled screams, but not before it rips off the peach's fence with one hit from its last bolt of lightning, causing it to cut the strings. As a result, separated from the bugs and the heroes crashing along with Stitch's ship, both James and the peach fall to the city below.

James coughs out the crocodile tongue as he awakens, breaking its spell and turning back to his previous form. He comes out of the giant peach to find that they have both landed on top of the Empire State Building, and is rescued by police officers, firefighters and the biggest crane in New York which then lowered down the peach to the ground and onto the truck. However, Spiker, Sponge and the Wario Bros. also arrive, turning out they have been following James and the peach to New York by driving their now-damaged car under the ocean (as their foolish and stupid way to travel from the United Kingdom to the United States). They attempt to claim James and the peach, but after being allowed to speak with help from the same mysterious old man who then appears for a quick moment, James reveals his adventures with his seemingly lost friends, as well as Spiker and Sponge's abusive behavior towards him to the crowd, who gasp in shock at the revelation. Spiker, Sponge, Wario and Waluigi become enraged by James' betrayal and attempt to kill him. The Wario Bros. summoned Rhinoblaster to finish James in an effort to exterminate the people of New York and take control of the Earth after the aunts failed to strike him with fire axes, but before they could do so, Mario, Luigi and Yoshi appear and knock the three down to defend the boy and challenge their siblings and the monster to a fight, revealing that they too were sent to Earth in time through the Time Hole. At the same time, the bugs, the Digimon, the Dragon Ball Gang, the turtles, Team Experiment and the dinosaurs arrive, using the remaining seagulls, MarineAngemon's bubbles and Puar and Oolong (shape-shifted in the forms of Birdramon and Aquilamon). While Goku fight and destroy Rhinoblaster with a Super Kamehameha, and the Mario Bros. send the Wario Bros. back to the Mushroom Kingdom with the Mario Bros. Final (combining Mario's and Luigi's finishing attacks in a single twist of fire), James and the insects tie up Spiker and Sponge with Miss Spider's silk and both his ex-aunts are arrested by being towed away by the crane driver. James introduces his friends to the citizens of New York and allows the children to eat up the peach.

The peach pit is made into a house in Central Park, where James lives happily with the bugs after the Digi-Squad, the Dragon Ball Gang, the turtles, Team Experiment, the dinosaurs and the Mushroom Team return back to their own worlds and time periods to reunite with their other friends and mentors. The old man (who is revealed to be the film's narrator) then appears to tell the viewers that is exactly what they've just seen and winks at them after catching the crocodile tongue to put it in his pocket. Before the end credits start, the last scene features newspapers appearing to show the viewers what's happening during September of 1949: Mr. Centipede has entered the race to become the next president of New York City, Mr. Grasshopper runs his own concert with other violin players, Earthworm is the mascot of his own sunscreen company, Mrs. Ladybug delivers a thousand babies in St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Miss Spider opens her own night club, Glowworm is the new nightlight of the Statue of Liberty and James celebrates his 9th birthday with the people of New York and the bugs as his new family.

In a post-credits scene, a new arcade game called "Spike the Aunts" is shown, featuring the rhino. Displeased to watch this through their monitors at their own bases and hideouts, Pretorius, the Foot Clan, King Koopa and Dr. Hämsterviel becomes furious about being defeated once again and again, and they vow to have revenge on the Digimon and their many friends. Shredder and Krang suggest that they'd send their new Foot Clan mutants Tokka and Rahzar along with Rocksteady and Bebop to go after the turtles, the Digi-Squad and other teams of heroes, if they want to make the fun even more darker than ever for next time, especially by going to New York in the year 1994 and making an audience with a wealthy man, David Xanatos, whose company is Xanatos Enterprises. The villains agreed and promises that victory will not belong to the Digimon for long.

Production notes

Trivia

  • This episode marks the appearance of Krillin and the Green Meadow Dinosaurs as they join the Digi-Squad: Tamed Edition, the Dragon Ball Gang, the Great Valley Dinosaurs and friends. And thus, a whole new group called Dinosaurs is introduced featuring the two related groups from the Great Valley and Green Meadows.
  • Set only in James' time period, the "Animagic" sequences of the characters (per team/squad) from Digimon, Dragon Ball, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Lilo and Stitch, The Land Before Time, Denver, the Last Dinosaur, Super Mario Bros. and Dink the Little Dinosaur are done by the whole team of countless Japanese stop motion puppet artists including Tadahito Mochinaga, Kizo Nagashima and Akikazu Kono at MOM Productions (MOMプロダクション, MOM Purodakushon)/Video Tokyo Productions (ビデオ東京プロダクション, Bideo Tōkyō Purodakushon) and Dentsu Studios (電通スタジオ, Dentsū Sutajio) in Japan for Rankin/Bass Productions (formerly known as Videocraft International). The archive footage of Pretorius in Edge City, the Koopas in the Mushroom Kingdom and the Foot Clan in New York, around the world or in space remain in traditional animation (including "Anime").
