To celebrate Flapjack's birthday, Captain K'nuckles and Flapjack sail westward, as forced by Bubbie in search of Candied Island. Flapjack is oblivious to the danger around him, despite scenery such as burning ships, monsters, crazy old hermits, and other such hazards. The mere mention of the word "West" causes monsters to appear, and the entire direction is shrouded in a "curse". After hours of traveling west Bubbie and K'nuckles declare that there is nothing in the west and try to go home. However, Flapjack builds a raft to keep sailing west, taking K'nuckles along for the ride. K'nuckles and Flapjack go crazy after drinking seawater, suffering hallucinations, but Bubbie rescues them. At the end, Bubbie gives Flapjack a "W" for his compass, but K'nuckles sold the compass for maple syrup. K'nuckles uses the "W" as a bottle opener and throws it into the ocean.
