Can the runaway pancake escape from the whole family, the dog, the rabbit, the duck, the cat, the goat, the fox, and a cunning old pig? This retelling of the story gives a very important lesson for the children to remember- it is never good to be disrespectful and disobedient to the elders and parents.
