Once upon a time...

there were two sisters called Ume-san and

Kame-san.

For a long time, they lived alone in an old

mansion.

Nobody came to visit them, nor did they

want to see anybody.

Once every day, they would wander off to

town...

and bring back stuff they had found on the

way.

There were so many abandoned things in

the town...

that they never failed to find something

interesting.

Ume-san and Kame-san took very good

care of their find.

So their find grew to like the sisters very

much.

Broken clocks, torn futons and cracked

music boxes.

They all huddled together and watched

over the sisters.

When night came to the mansion...

Ume-san and Kame-san slept peacefully,

surrounded by their numerous finds.

A serene and long dark night.

A thousand nights went past.

But the sisters didn't notice...

the slight sound that had started to flow

into their old ears.

And in that flow...

someone was waiting to be found for the

longest time.

Children.

Gather around.

Get in line.

Now, let's sing that loud for the old ladies.

A sheep that sneezes

A sneeze that echoes

A red red apple...

Fell from a tree

Bleat, atchoo, drop!

It's now the sheep's apple

The sheep ate the apple

The apple is inside the sheep

The red red apple...

is now no longer

Bleat, munch, gulp!

The sheep ate it

The apple became the sheep

The sheep smelt like apple

Then it grew...

Curls of red wool

It's now the apple's sheep

Let's all spin...

The sheep's red yarn

The story of the apple sheep

Please take care of yourselves and live a

long and happy life!

Children...

Wait up!

What is it?

We ran over two old ladies.

You actually saw them.

Saw what?

Never mind.

This is beautiful.

A rarity.

Let me.

Gently.

A helmet.

A microphone.

Must have gone out.

Will it work?

Nobody can do anything on a full stomach.

She'll fall asleep.

Let's see.

Here.

Taste it.

Go ahead.

If you please.

She ate!

Hurray!

She was just hungry.

Didn't I tell you?

I hope she'll sleep now.

Let's wait and see.

Milk is good for you.

So is miso soup.

Delicious.

Like it?

Here.

There's lots of calcium in milk.

And vitamins in miso soup.

Throw it away.

OK. Let's do so.

This, too.

Let's get rid of them.

And this.

What's that?

Count one, two...

What?

It's tight.

But why?

I thought we threw this away.

Wake up.

Wake up, my little darlings.

Rise and shine, girls.

Come on.

Ume-san and Kame-san, both of you

listen to Mommy.

What is it, Mommy?

I'm still sleepy.

My true love is going to take me away.

Let me come with you.

No.

It's too far away from here.

How far?

Beyond the mountain and beyond the sea.

Even beyond an unknown country.

Beyond the mountain and beyond the sea.

Even beyond an unknown country.

Good bye!

Good bye.

Take care!

She's gone.

I wonder where she went.

How far could it be?

Aren't children allowed there?

Boo!

How could I leave you two?

Do it again.

Ume-san and Kame-san and...

Mommy.

Just the three of us.

The three of us forever in this mansion.

Just us three...
