A police officer goes into a rapunzel patch to collect some of the delicious plant for his pregnant wife. Unfortunately, the patch belongs to a witch who threatens to take him to the authorities unless he promises her the first thing he sees when he gets home. Sure of himself, the officer agrees and returns home to find…his newborn daughter! The lovely child is taken in by the witch, who names her Rapunzel and raises her in a tower. Lonely Rapunzel only has her giant puppy, luxuriously long hair and lifetime supply of triscuits to keep her company until she meets a handsome prince.
