In this hilarious “spin” on a Brothers Grimm tale, three unusual fairies help a lazy girl named Zelda. She could win the Prince’s hand by spinning wool, but she hates work of any kind. The three fairies offer to spin for her if she will invite them to her wedding. Anita’s long, flat foot is perfect for pumping the spinning wheel. Benita’s long tongue is perfect for moistening the wool. Bob’s huge thumb is perfect for winding the thread. When Zelda takes advantage of their kindness, and the Prince is repelled by their strange attributes, both get their just desserts.
