Description

An old shopkeeper's 14-year-old nephew whom he is raising pokes fun at the town's superstition. One day, the nephew accidentally damages a tree which belongs to Old Magda, a witch. Being the tree had also cut the boy's foot and drew blood, somehow the boy now "belongs" to the witch. The boy refuses to go with her and the shopkeeper defends him saying the boy didn't understand the ways of witches. The witch, given power over the boy's body, turns him into a donkey. However, there is a word which can restore him to human form. "Dangblast". When it's repeated, he returns to Donkey form. Eventually the witch finds out and removes that particular portion of the spell.
Now, you see Magda was going to give the boy to her master, who turns out to be Satan. The old shopkeeper knows the laws of witches, and utilizing a rule which says one can be freed from their bond if they successfully win a bet with Satan, has the boy challenge Satan and Old Magda. He must win a tug-of-war with one of Satan's previous victims. Hercules, a huge donkey that the boy-donkey has no chance against...or does he?
