Great Grandad’s Tall Tales - The Waffle Bakery

Tone Mygind Rostbøll, Denmark, 2016

10 min.DK/DocumentaryChildren's films

When Theodor comes down for breakfast one morning, he finds a delicious-looking slice of bread covered in Nutella on the kitchen table. Unable to resist the temptation, Theodor gobbles it up. Great Grandad walks into the kitchen to find his Nutella sandwich gone. Theodor makes up a story about a wolf eating it, but Great Grandad thinks that sounds a bit like a tall tale and proceeds to tell Theodor about how his pal Fatso was always peckish – just like Theodor – and one time, they baked a whole load of waffles even though they weren’t supposed to because they were feeling so hungry. Theodor and Great Grandad bake their own waffles – and in the middle of it all, a real wolf appears! Theodor and Great Grandad quickly lock the door so it can’t come in and steal their waffles. They eat till their bellies are full, but just as they reach the last waffle, Theodor feels sorry for the wolf – and decided to leave the last waffle outside the door.
