Based on a folktale, Epossumondas is a happy little possum.  He visits his auntie and each day she sends him home with something.  When he carries home a piece of cake and squashes it in his hands, his mother tells him he should have put it under his hat to keep it safe.  The next day, his auntie gives him some butter.  Can you imagine what happens when he puts the butter under his hat?  Follow Epossumondas as misunderstandings get funnier and funnier.
SUBJECTS:     Fools and jesters -- Folklore.
