The Fiddle (1x11)


Air date: Apr 23, 1974

This is an old bucket upside-down, with holes in it. Smoke is coming from it. The mice run to fetch water but the sound of Irish fiddle-playing is coming from it. Gabriel recognises it as being played by a leprechaun and he tells a story about a leprechaun and some cabbages. Madeleine sings a song about Brian O'Lynn. In the end the mice tip the bucket over, but there is no leprechaun in it, only a tiny fiddle. Charliemouse picks it up and plays it marvellously. He explains that he isn't playing the violin. It is playing him.
