"Slapstick! Miyuki's Mother's Day Challenge!!" (ドタバタ!みゆきの母の日大作戦!! Dotabata! Miyuki no Haha no hi no Daisakusen!!?) is the 15th episode of Smile Pretty Cure!, and also the 404th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. The English title is "Mother's Day Crunch".


Miyuki attempts to help her mother around the house while trying to come up with a good gift for Mothers Day. Eventually she learns from the others that presents can come in all shapes and sizes, as long as there is love behind it.


The girls are in their tree house and Miyuki is wondering what the rest are doing. When they reveal it is Mothers Day she panics upon realizing she didn't prepare anything for her own mom. To make up for it, Miyuki heads straight home to try to help out with the household chores.

However, each time she ends up making a mess; such as putting salt in coffee, using the wrong detergent in the laundry machine, tripping on the vacuum, and accidentally allowing the bed covers to fly away.

Miyuki decided to get some pointers from the others and pays them each a visit. She sees Yayoi making a portrait with paint, while Akane sews a decoration onto an apron. Nao is making a tissue cover while Reika uses her pottery skills to make a cup. They attempt to help Miyuki when she decides to make a necklace using the jewelry machine.

After she finishes, she is less than happy with the results, so Yayoi suggests she gets a greeting card to go along with it. When Miyuki agrees they head back home.

Wolfrun holding Ikuyo's necklace

Meanwhile, Wolfrun saw people celebrating Mother's Day and began to suck the Bad End Energy from them. When the girls spot this, they quickly transform into Pretty Cure and he uses a red ball to create an Akanbe from a Carnation flower. The Precures began to battle and in the midst, Candy accidentally drop Miyuki's necklace. Wolfrun picks it up and comments on how ugly it looks, which causes Cure Happy shock and momentarily makes her stop fighting. 

Luckily, March and Sunny are able to get the necklace back for her, claiming to him that its only the thought that counts. They return it to Happy and she realizes how right they are, so with the aid of the others they quickly rid of the Akanbe.

With things back to normal, Miyuki returns home and presents the gift to her mother. It is a bit broken since the battle, but her mother is delighted with the gift an accepts it, wearing it right away for her daughter. She then thanks Miyuki, who happily admires her mother and the necklace before embracing her as the other girls spend the day with their mothers and give them their gifts.
