A few months ago, AT&T began airing a commercial in which Hansel and Gretel found themselves lost in the environs of New York City. The old bread crumbs gambit didn't work (again) because the pigeons were scarfing them up. So in order to find their way home, the wayward waifs whipped out their cell phone and used its GPS program to find their way back to their cottage.

Fairy tale characters in the modern, "real" world..... We've seen this happen before in Toobworld. In the 'Bewitched' episode "Sam And The Beanstalk", Tabitha zapped Jack - he of the beanstalk fame - out of her storybook and she took his place in the tale. The same situation probably applies in this case as well. In fact, I'd like to think it was a grandchild of Tabitha's who caused Hansel and Gretel to appear in the real world. (Yes, folks, Tabitha would be old enough at 45 - the same age as Erin Murphy - to be a grandmother by now!) Are there 'Bewitched' fanficcers out there? I'll leave it up to them to conjure up the details.....
