Storyboard Text

  • This is Gumpy the goblin. He lives alone in a hollowed out tree. Gumpy has very little money, not enough to buy Cyclops boogers to eat at the market. Gumpy decided to leave his small home and travel to the castle and find work. 
  • Gumpy had to overcome his cowardly feelings. On the way to the castle Gumpy met an Cyclops. Gumpy told the Cyclops about his predicament. The Cyclops pitied the retarted goblin and dug out some of his boogers for Gumpy to snack on during the remainder of his journey to the castle
  • In the castle, Gumpy saw a beautiful princess. He immediately wanted to marry her. But he would never be able to marry her because he was poor and ugly. "Rather worthless" he thought. The princess never looked at Gumpy once. Gumpy wasn't the attractive type.
  • The goblin eventually found work with an Avian Humanoid.  The humanoid had many tasks for the goblin because Gumpy was a ignominious figure. Gumpy was a weakling, some of the tasks were too hard for him. So he decided to go back to the castle and look for another job
  • Gumpy couldn't help but stare at the princess. He finally asked her... "Will you marry me?" The princess gasped. "Guards! Guards! Help!" The guards came running and took Gumpy away. 
  • He was placed in a dungeon for many years, chained and helpless. Gumpy the goblin was only fed rotten rat tails for dinner. Will he ever be released?
