Episode Recap

There is a trial going on where the witch is accused of trying to eat Hansel and Gretel and the witch says that she is innocent and that the kids are really brats. The witch tells her side of the story first and says that the kids came over after she had baked a chocolate pie and acted mean towards her and slammed the pie in her face. The kids say that she is lying and tell the judge that the witch enticed them in and tried to fix them for supper, her supper! Snooper and Blabber are then called to the witness stand to tell their side of the story. They say that they went to the witch's house to search for hte missing kids and the witch told them that they weren't there and it was just her and her gorilla, Marvin. Snooper thinks that she is bluffing until a gorilla appears at the door and pouns him in the head. He and Blabber run away until they hear the kids yelling for help. They go back and try to bust in and the witch tricks them and they charge into the stove. They come out in the roasting try and chase the witch. They are then chased by the gorilla and Snooper takes refuge in a ligth fixture from the ceiling. Blabber tries to help but winds up causing Snooper to fall onto the gorilla. The chase continues until Snooper runs through a doorway and Blabber slams the door behind him and it opens after someone slams into it and it is the witch.

Back to the courtroom, the witch is still professing her innocence and she goes to get a surprise witness. The gorilla comes in and takes the stand and says that the witch is a nice old lady. Hansel says that the gorilla is fibbing and that the ugly old witch is mean. The witch takes off the gorilla mask and says that she isn't ugly and realizes that she just goofed and the judge finds her guilty.
