THE GINGERBREAD MAN
The Gingerbread Man takes place on an antique kitchen dresser. The Gingerbread Man, newly baked by the Big Ones, meets Mr Salt, Miss Pepper and Herr Von Cuckoo, who lives in the cuckoo-clock. He has a sore throat which is ruining his "cuckoos", thus threatening to land him in the dreaded dustbin.
The Gingerbread Man's efforts to help Cuckoo's sore throat are hampered by the villainous scavenger Sleek the Mouse and by The Old Bag - an old tea-bag who lives in the teapot on the top shelf.
