  • A small boy proves himself by outwitting an ancient, evil shaman that, once released, casts out his tribe of flesh-eating Manhana into the forest.

    Despite the low overall rating of this episode, it is actually quite good. I loved how at the end, the boy had the other boys disguise themselves as Manhana to trick the shaman. Definitely a classic episode. My only complaint is the Manhana are a bit cheesy, Big-foot-esque things, but other than that this is a much worthy episode.
