This is Tales of the Unexpected for kids, a new anthology series of eerie and mysterious stories ending with a moral.

Kicking things off on Halloween is Slapstick, the chilling tale of a girl whose complaints about her embarrassing parents have unintended and sinister consequences.

After Jessie comes across a puppet show on a beach and pours her heart out to its star, she is surprised to discover the next day her parents have turned into puppets!

The novelty soon wears off, however, when Jessie realises how much she misses her real mum and dad…

Can she turn them back into real people?
