Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl
Scene 23 : Children’s Hour
Storyteller: Once upon a time there was a little house in a dark forest. In this house lived a humble woodcutter and his wife
and their pretty daughter, Little Red Riding Hood.And in the middle of this deep, dark forest, there lived a vicious wolf! One
day Little Red Riding Hood sent off to take some things to her old grandmother who lived deep in the forest.
The vicious wolf saw Little Red Riding Hood and thought: “She looks very good to eat!”
“Where are you going my, pretty one?”
“Oh, kind sir, to my grandmother’s.”
“Ha, ha, ha, ha!” snirked the wicked wolf and dashed off through the forest to grandmother’s house.
“Knock, knock, knock” went the wicked wolf.
The door opened wide, but it wasn’t grandmother who opened it. It was Buzz Aldrin, America’s #2 spaceman! But this was not Granny’s little house at all, but the headquarter of NASA, the American space research agency.
The wicked wolf was shot by security guards. So all was quiet in the forest again. The humble woodcutter and his wife sold the their story to Der Speigel for 40 000 DM. NASA agreed to limit the number of nuclear tests in Granny’s little house to two on Thursdays and one on Saturdays after tea.
