|When the “Big Ones” go to bed upstairs, the characters on the kitchen cupboard are just waking up. One evening, its inhabitants, Salts, Pepper and Herr Von Cuckoo, find Gingerbread Man lying in a pastry cutter. With currants for eyes and a slice of cherry for a mouth, they bring their new friend to life.
As he explores the shelves of the cupboard, Gingerbread Man learns to avoid the “Big Ones” and Sleek, the gangster-like mouse with a taste for biscuits. With his wit and charm, he wins the friendship of the outwardly ferocious Old Bag (a tea bag) and in the process, captures the hearts and imagination of young viewers.
