The Safest Place For Fruit Is In Carmen Miranda's Hat

Director: Kal Bonner.

 

The Frumans of Frumania live in a perfect but shallow world, accessed through an apple on a market stall. In amongst the rotten bunch is Appleby Cox's-Pippin. He is generally dismissed by his fellow Frumans for his inability to be the same as them, and for his love of all things creative. Soon Appleby feels the strain of being an outcast and life at home is no better.

            Eventually rejected by his hypocritical father, Appleby is forced to start a journey in search of 'being the same', eventually encountering the evil Agent Orange and learning a harsh lesson in what really lies close to the Fruman heart - greed.
