Potato Needs a Bath
Maris Piper lives in a house with her fruit and vegetable friends. It is Potato's birthday and they are going to have a party! The problem is that Potato needs a bath because he is covered in mud (Potato loves mud). But he doesn't want to have a bath.
Maris gets all the fruit and veg ready, makes the party hats, prepares pass the parcel and tidies the house but every time she asks Potato to have a bath he disappears!
A very funny and highly visual film created from the much loved theatre show. Watch the film, then hold your own vegetable party at home.
