Great Grandad's Tall Tales - The Cave

8 min.DK/DocumentaryChildren's films

When Theodor asks Great Grandad to tell him another ‘Fatso tale’, Great Grandad tells him he has a few grown-up things to do first. But when Great Grandad has finished shaving and dressing, he recounts the tale about the time when he and Fatso left home and built a cave out in the woods. Inspired by the story, Theodor packs his bag and heads off into the forest, singing the Boy Scout’s song that Great Grandad taught him. He builds an amazing cave, but as the day reaches a close, Great Grandad suddenly becomes worried – where’s Theodor? Luckily, Great Grandad’s cat knows exactly where Theodor is – and on finding him – Great Grandad is very impressed with the fine cave Theodor has built. Theodor and Great Grandad finish the day by cooking sausages over the open fire while they sing scout songs and cosy up around the glowing embers.
