Storyboard Text

  • Our story begins with Morris bringing a magical monkey paw to the White's house...
  • It will grant you three wishes. If you keep it, don't blame me for what happens.
  • I wish for 200 pounds to pay off the house.
  • I'm sorry to tell you that your son perished in an accident at work. In payment, here is 200 pounds.
  • I've got it! You can wish our son alive again! Please, wish, WISH!
  • grr
  • I don't know. All right. I wish my son alive again.
  • No, don't! Don't open the door!
  • I'm coming Herbert! I just can't reach this lock!
  • GGRRR!
  • Here it is! I wish my son dead in the grave!
  • Herbert? Oh, my Herbert is gone!
  • GGR--
  • I have to find that paw!
  • The Fakir that enchanted the paw wanted to show people that messing with your fate only ends in sorrow. Mr. and Mrs. White, in the end, found that to be true.
