Boris and the Dumb Skulls

Griselda the witch has been drinking too much evil spirit. Boris her pet skull and the dim daft dwarves are fed up of being bullied by her. They decide to form a punk rock band and seek fame and fortune.

But just before they leave for their first gig two of Griselda’s dead ancestors break out of their glass tanks beneath the ruined tower. Fifi Vicomtesse de Grunch is very keen on dancing. Her husband the Vicomte is not. When Griselda arrives at The Polhill Arms things do not work out as she expects, but unfortunately the evil spirit is still working inside her: it has not forgotten her ghastly plan of how to fill the larder.
