An elderly couple with no children live in a little home. The wife of the two decided to bake a Gingerbread man. She got the ingredients, put the man in the oven, then he baked. Once done the lady opened the oven door then all of a sudden the Gingerbread man jumped out the oven, passed the old man, and out the door as the couple chase.
As the Gingerbread man ran away from the couple he came across a cow, a horse, and farmers, that all joined in the chasing of the Gingerbread man. All beating down on the Gingerbread man with words saying how they want to eat him. The Gingerbread Man goes over a hill and passes by a fox. The fox wanting to eat him doesn't say so but instead says he will just run along. They end up at the edge of a river where the Gingerbread man can't cross.
The fox knowing that the Gingerbread man couldn't cross the river told the Gingerbread man to get on his tail so he can swim him over and away from the elderly couple, cow, horse, and the farmers. As they swam across the river the fox kept telling the Gingerbread man to move up and closer to his mouth. The Gingerbread man started from the tail, to the fox's back, to it's shoulder, to his head, and finally to his nose. As soon as they crossed the river the fox ate the Gingerbread man in one bite.
