This Mini-musical is a parody of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ by the Grimm Brothers, warning of the dangers of eating too much sugar! In a TV interview the incident is re-enacted with a humerous song and dance. The other guests are the three little Pigs who are now running a building construction business!

From AXEL & THROTTLE
Axel and Throttle, always in trouble
And for ever getting up to - no good
Poor widow woman lived in a little country cottage
In the middle of a wood.
Axel and Throttle went for a nibble
Of the little country cottage - one night
Poor widow woman, she saw them coming
And she hid inside the over out of sight...
