This strange silent fantasy is played largely for laughs, as our hero stumbles onto a race of creepy bearded ale drinking elves, falls asleep for twenty years, and awakens to find his family doesn't recognize him. A light-hearted version of the famous story.
Included is the 1896 version. Presented in eight short segments.
