Minciunel thought he could easily escape from Justice and Punishment, but because he has short legs his attempts to reach far have failed.

No matter how hard he tried to no longer like lambs, Lupuşor remained as greedy as before when it comes to meat. He tried to quit but without success. Even if he tried to change his nature and behavior several times at school, he was always told that he’ll still be a wolf. In vain Lupuşor wanted to appear as a sheep during history classes, because his teacher still knew it was him. In vain attempts. The wolf remains the same.
“When the cat’s away, the mice will play” (Taking advantage of someone’s absence to break the rules)
Archie, Bart, Chip, and Gus are the most mischievous mice and they always take advantage of every opportunity to have fun. When Thomas the cat goes to visit his friends, the four mice begin to sing, dance and have as much fun as they can. Archie is the one who brings the cheese specialties, while Bart is in charge of arranging the dining room table. Chip brings the musical instruments and the music sheets, and Gus is testing his cooking skills while preparing biscuits and sweet snacks for his little fellows. Come along and party with Archie, Bart, Chip and Gus, but make sure to party as hard as you want, without having to be afraid of the authoritative cat Thomas!

That is why we want neither belts nor hoopoes.
