Storyboard Text

  • The reader is introduced to a king who loved joking, and so did his seven corpulent men who happen  to be his ministers.
  • Exposition
  • He had held two little people prisoners to entertain him, since he found their behaviors hilarious. Their names were HopFrog and Trippetta.
  • The king threw wine in Trippetta's face, and this had really annoyed HopFrog, and had made Trippetta very upset.
  •  HopFrog and Trippetta were tired of being treated with derision from the king, and made a plan to rebel.
  • Inciting Action
  • They agree and HopFrog starts to fetter them to the chandelier, and then encase them in tar, feathers, and flax.
  • Rising Action
  • HopFrog is convincing the King, and his seven men to do an amazing trick, when guests  arrive for the party. The trick is that they will look like Ourang-Outangs hanging from a chandelier.
  • Climax
  • The King and his seven men relize that them being chained up is not a game, and start to  vigorously move around.
  • In retribution to the king HopFrog sets the "Eight Ourang-Outangs" on fire in front of the party guests.
  • The guests at the party  were astonished, by the little person who had killed the king and his men. HopFrog had vexed the crowd, and they all fell in silence. 
  • Falling Action
  •  Once HopFrog had killed the men, he absconded from the party, and ran away with Trippetta.
