This short play was clipped from the larger play Merlin Meets the Mad Hatter and The Three Little Pigs Go Surfing and focuses on the subplot with the three pigs.
The Big Bad Wolf and his girlfriend The Sleepy Fox have the three pigs trapped inside Clark’s brick house. But Clark is the smart pig; he has enough food in there to last a while and keep his brothers’ safe. The Wolf devises a plan to get the pigs out of the house. It involves making a deal with a shark. When the Wolf disguises himself as a UPS delivery man and delivers a surf board to Clark’s house for his surfer-dude brother Fender, the plot is set in motion. Ace detective Arthur the Bear enlists the help of 11-year-old Artie and a Skunk to help him protect the pigs.
