THE OWL & THE PUSSYCAT 

WENT TO SEE

Synopsis:

 

Based on the stories and verses of Edward Lear, the Owl & the Pussycat go to sea in their 'beautiful peagreen boat', in search of a ring and someone to marry them. They come to a land where the bong tress grow and meet the Dong with the luminous nose. His love, the Jumbly Girl, has gone away and he cries constantly, but he takes them to see the Quangle Wangle, who suggests they go on a trip. Along the way they have great adventures meeting the villainous Plum Pudding Flea, The Runcible Spoon,

the eccentric Professor Bosh, the Pig

with a ring through it's nose,

The Jumblies and of course

the Turkey vicar,

who finally marries them.
