Editors Note
Note A nine-year-old boy and his grandmother discover adventure when they encounter the Grand High Witch and her diabolical plot to turn all of England's children into mice. Based on the story by Roald Dahl. This was the great Jim Henson's last producer credit.
Plot Summary
Summary Young Luke and his grandmother, on vacation in England, have just checked into a hotel. Also in the premises is the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, a false moniker that hides the fact that the organization's members are really evil-minded, mask-wearing, child-hating witches! And they have all gathered to discuss a most fiendish plot: to turn all children into mice, by feeding them poisonous chocolate. Luke overhears the heinous plans when he eavesdrops on the women, but unfortunately they capture him and turn him into a mouse. Unlucky Luke must scurry back up to his room -- without getting killed -- and alert his grandmother of the witches' intentions, before it's too late. Then, the neophyte rodent must find a way to become human again...
