Hansel and Gretel become lost in the forest while looking for berries. As their parents search for them, the children encounter friendly forest animals who protect them as they sleep. The story builds with suspense when the children encounter a peculiar old woman who "loves little children so much that she could just gobble them up!" Imagine their surprise when they discover her real intent!
Beautiful, skillfully operated marionettes dramatize this children's version of Humperdinck's famous opera. Based on the most popular of all fairy tales, the Jim Gamble Puppet Productions' adaptation is an outstanding addition to the Puppet Classics series.
