Abridged version of Hansel and Gretel!
The lonely woodcutter re-married after his wife, and mother to Hansel and Gretel, died.
Soon after the wedding, the step-mother showed how much she disliked the woodcutter's children.
The nasty woman sent them into the forest at night to collect wood for the fire, knowing the children would not be able to find their way home again.
The children were delighted when they came upon an old lady living deep in the forest.
My, who have we here?! Children, mmm!
It didn't take them long to realise she was a child-eating witch! She grabbed both Hansel and Gretel and slammed them in a cage!, cackling "eh eh eh' as she did.
But these kids were quick! When she tried to grab them out to prepare for a meal, they managed to shove her right into the flaming oven! Hansel and Gretel lived happily ever after in the witch's cottage.
