73 min.DK/FeaturePuppet films, Children's films, Animation

What do you do if your neighbour is a witch whose greatest wish is to be the most evil creature in the world? This is the problem facing Prop, the protagonist, when he inherits a cottage in the forest. Not only is the witch out to get him; the local villagers aren't keen on his presence either, because the witch's ire also affects them. However, Prop is fond of his new home and decides it is worth fighting for. Luckily he can call on his friend Berta, the temperamental talking cow, and the four small trolls, the Cranburpers, to prepare himself for the wicked spells the witch has up her sleeve.
