Carl wants to be the sheriff. Why? That’s what the other monsters want to know too. They don’t like the idea at all. Only Carl’s friend Susi is on his side. One day, bandits Ete and Petete visit the local tavern, drinking garlic lemonade and getting hiccups. They angrily swear vengeance on the village. Carl must put himself in their way – alone. Luckily, Susi has a brilliant idea.
