Plot synopsis
An old man with his old wife founded themselves alone. The wife grew vegetable garden, grazed cattle. The old man also had what to do, he made tableware from clay bowls, plates, jugs, mugs, earthen saucers, pots. And suddenly one of those pots became alive, oh, it was so rosy! Happy old woman let Clayboy have dinner with them and put it at the table on the pedestal.
Clayboy turned round, grabbed the old woman with the one hand and the old man with the other and then put them into his mouth. So he did with the cat and the dog.
