Description:


    While out for a stroll, slow-witted Mugtor and his more intelligent acquaintance Nishu become extremely hungry. They find some fruit up in a tree. but it is just too high up for either of them to get at it alone. After some slight communication problems. the two realize they must work together in order to satisfy their craving. The burly Mugtor uses his brawny strength to hur1 Nishu into the fruit-laden treetop, but right away the greedy Nishu takes advantage of his unsuspecting and dim-witted partner. First Nishu eats fruit after delicious fruit simply to cure his hunger, but soon begins to enjoy the position of power he finds himself in. He then taunts the hapless Mugtor, who can only helplessly watch from below, craving the fruit more and more with every passing moment. How long cant the imbalance continue before things are set right? Can Mugtor overcome his slow oafish nature and figure out a way? Perhaps he could even teach Nishu a thing or two!
