Synopsis
In this grim fairy tale, a young prince grows fond of his nanny until one day she appears dead. The king attempts to console his heart-broken son by offering him candy, cake and a pony at the funeral for his nanny. The boy peeks in on her as she is lying in state and sees her move. It turns out she suffers from cataleptic fits and reassures the prince that she will never leave him. The boy thinks of all the nice things that he won't be getting due to the cancellation of the funeral and so brings a candlestick down upon her head.

Synopsis
A British officer visits his uncle in India during the occupation. His uncle warns him off hunting the wild boars in the area which are sacred to the natives. He disregards him and kills a boar, then prepares it by boiling the hair off, roasting it upon a spit, and finally serving it on a plate with an apple in its mouth. A native servant present during the dinner witnesses this and is horrified. The uncle apologizes to the native head, but word gets out, and though the officer is to leave the area tomorrow, the natives get hold of him and give him the same treatment.

Synopsis
A man subject to cataleptic fits worries that he may be buried alive during one of them so he instructs his undertaker to perform no embalming and has a telephone installed in the coffin. He gets into an car accident while having a fit and it is assumed he was killed him. When he revives in the rapidly oxygen-depleting coffin, he first tries to phone his wife, then his brother, and finally his doctor, all without success. Finally, he tries to dial the operator, but unfortunately for him, it is December 7, 1941, and all circuits are busy!
