Soon to be seen on Nickelodeon as an episode of the live-action TV series based on The Deadtime Stories!
C.T. and his cousin Lea are staying at their grandparents’ old farmhouse. It’s Grandpa’s seventieth birthday, and everyone’s celebrating with a big family reunion. All the weird relatives are here, and all they seem to want to talk about are “the good old days.”
C.T. and Lea think “the good old days” are pretty boring—until they find some home movies hidden away in the attic—movies from when their grandfather was just a boy.
The home movies give them a piece of family history that the relatives never talked about. It seems that horses, cows, pigs, and chickens aren’t the only creatures Grandpa’s been taking care of on the farm. C.T. and Lea discover there’s a monster among them—and this creature is dying to eat a lot more than the birthday cake!
