The Adventures of the Dish and the SpoonBook - 2006
Having run away together, the Dish and the Spoon from the nursery rhyme "The Cat and the Fiddle" become vaudeville stars before turning to a life of crime. Mini Grey's spin on the nursery rhyme classic "Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle" is a love story of sorts that starts when "the dish ran away with the spoon." In the midst of the Great Depression, Dish and Spoon become rich and famous vaudeville stars--until their taste for the high life puts them in debt to a gang of sharp and shady characters (depicted as evil knives). The cinematic presentation--with a touch of Bonnie and Clyde, a dash of "The Perils of Pauline"--proves that crime doesn't pay and love conquers all. A visual treat with new details to discover again and again, here is absurd good fun for the whole family.
