Lives and Adventures of Cobbler and Knobbs, The

COMEDY. When the Night is kidnapped, two bumbling security guards, Cobbler and Knobbs, along with the help of a giant snail, set out to free the Night so that everyone can get a good night’s sleep. It sounds like a good plan, except that Cobbler and Knobbs forgot to bring along a tent or sleeping bags for their journey, and the only food they remembered to bring is a bag of old Rice Krispies treats. And if that isn’t bad enough, they soon encounter a pack of hungry wolves, a band of dim-witted pirates, a washed-up magician, a de-fanged rattlesnake, and a door-to-door sales dragon. When the heroes finally reach the kidnapper’s hideout high atop a mountain, Cobbler must come up with a bedtime story good enough to help the kidnapper overcome his fear of the dark. Will the Night be freed so that the heroes can celebrate with a well-earned ginger ale?
