A 'Rojak' Cartoon..

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,

All the King's horses, and all the King's men,

Couldn't put Humpty together again~!

That's the original text for the nursery rhyme for Humpty Dumpty. Many children are no longer familiar with nursery rhymes. I wonder what they learn in kindergarten and nursery schools. I heard that some of the kindergartens teach the children additional Maths, trying to create little geniuses?

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down and broke his crown

And Jill came tumbling after.

Up got Jack, and home did trot

As fast as he could caper

He went to bed and bound his head

With vinegar and brown paper.

In this movie, Jack and Jill were two ugly giants. They had with them 3 seeds from Jack and the Beanstalk.
Now, are you familiar with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk? He actually exchanged his one and only family cow with some beans. The magic beans grew right into the sky and there was a giant's castle up in the sky. Jack stole the giant's money, came back down and chopped off the beanstalk. That was the summary of the whole story.

In this case, Jack was in prison. He was an old man and he was imprisoned together with Humpty because Humpty was caught while trying to get away after robbing the local bank.

The goose with the golden egg. In this case, the goose was staying up in the sky in the castle where the giant's used to stay. The giants were not around, they were dead long time ago. The gosling in this cartoon looked like a chick and it was protected by its mother, the royal large goose who flew down from the castle in the air to hunt for its young chick, kidnapped by Humpty and his meow friends.

The word 'rojak', a Malay word, means a mixture of everything. If you have no idea what kinda food is that, go Google it. It's the Google generation. Anything that you're not sure of, go Google to get your answer. You'll never figure that Dreamwork can actually mix up all the nursery rhymes and children's fairy tales and turned them into one piece of cartoon. That's the cartoon. The meow in boots. I've never seen this kinda mixture of everything. In conclusion, I don't really like it except for the meow.
