"The Wing’d Whale" is the sixteenth episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on November 3, 2019.


A ride on the mythical Wing’d Whale leads to an encounter with the Freshgrave Twins.


Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore are finally aboard the Wing'd Whale, having made it to Soul's Hollow where, having first heard its amazing story, they slayed a slarvin and its dangerous slarva, saving the town.

They are joined by Schnenessa and Snaken Freshgrave, who are traveling via the whale back to Jizzlenob Preparatory Academy for Young Wizards following their Vwishtash break. They are drunk.

Schnenessa and Snaken fill the trio in on the events of their recent break. Schnenessa developed a crush on a Drumstring student she met at Commodore Frogs, and Snaken has had relations with a dryad. They're also looking forward to their last year of school and are nervous about the job market after graduation. Throughout the interview they attempt to play a game of "Micing" between themselves and Chunt, where if you trick someone into spotting a dead mouse they must drink its blood.

Realizing they're too drunk, they summon their pfatronuses to sober up. They speak of their family, tell a story about Snaken's foot, and brainstorm what their pranks will be as Seven-Years. Usidore tries to convince them turn good but Schnenessa thinks it will have more dramatic impact if they wait until the end of a long-life of evil doing. Instead they brainstorm post-graduation plans.

With no other plans, Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore decide to accompany Schnenessa and Snaken to Jizzlenob.


Joseph L. asks how old Arnie is if there are extra months in Foon. The trio can't be sure time passes at the same rate on Earth and Foon, while Schnenessa and Snaken discuss which month is most "extra."

Space bunker

In the bunker, the Mysterious Man's outro is interrupted when he detects a wizard-related dimensional "incursion," presumable related to Spintax's activities.
