Storyboard Text

  • In Calabria, a long time ago, lived Strega Nona, the grandma witch. 
  • The next day, Anthony went to the Town Square and told everyone about the magic pasta pot, but everyone laughed at him and said he was lying. Anthony said someday he will get the pasta pot in front of everyone and show them.
  • All the town's people talked about Strega Nona and went to see her if they had trouble because she had a magic touch. 
  • Strega Nona was getting old and needed someone to help her with her house and garden. Big Anthony heard about her needing help, so he went to see her. She said she would give him 3 coins, a place to eat and sleep, BUT he cannot touch her pasta pot. Anthony agreed. 
  • As soon as she left, Anthony took the pasta pot and put it on the floor. He sang the words of the song to the pasta pot and the pot began to fill up with pasta
  • One night Anthony heard Strega Nona singing in front of the empty pasta pot. He saw that it was a magic pot because it made pasta appear out of no where.
  • Once Strega Nona was gone, Anthony took the pasta pot and put it on the floor. He sang the words of the song and the pot began to fill up with pasta.
  • He ranto the town square and shouted to everyone that they can all have pasta at Strega Nona's house. Everyone still laughed and did not believe him but they followed him anyway.
  • Bubble, bubble pasta pot, boil me some pasta nice and hot...
  • Once everyone got to Strega Nonas house, they all ate the pasta from the pot. The pot never got empty so Anthony began to sing to it so it can simmer down. Then, everyone began cheering for Anthony and the magic pot. 
  • Pasta was pouring all over the house and the pot kept bubbling. STOP he yelled. The pasta did not stop. The pasta began going all around town.
  • Later, Strega Nona told Anthony that she is leaving to go visit her friend. She told him the tasks that she wants him to finish and reminded him not to touch her pasta pot.
  • Streganona came down the road and saw what happened. She sang the magic song and blew her 3 kisses and the pasta came to a halt.
  • The people turned on Anthony but Strega Nona said, "Wait, Anthony you wanted pasta from my pot and I wanna sleep in my bed, tonight, so start eating all this pasta". And so he did.
