The Bard meets the barnyard in this ten-minute parody of Hamlet—with farm animals. When Piglet is confronted by the ghost of his father, the old King Ham, who proclaims that "I was murdered," it sets the young pig on a quest for revenge that may just turn the farm into a ghost town. Fun for all ages ensues, as students get introduced to drama and the elements of literature amid a comically high body count.
