Would it surprise you to know that the story of Rapunzel happened in France? Well it didn’t really, but our story takes you on a frivolous frolic through the French countryside. The Ogres garden in the Mushroom patch while the corn and potato spies report back to Madame Gothel. Frenchy and his intense friends, the Wood Elves, do their best to help Rapunzel escape the grasp of Madame Gothel. The lost Prince, Rapunzel’s parents, and her friends the unicorns try to help. Just when you think it’s safe to cross the bridge a troll and three billy goats gruff get in the way. It doesn’t help that the three bears (or is it four) confuse Rapunzel with Goldilocks and chase her through the forest. Add to that the gremlins trying to play tricks on everyone and you have chaos! Well, it’s not that bad because the pixies foil the gremlins plans most of the time. In short, Rapunzel and all the rest of the characters tell a silly tale of personal triumph and friendship.
