Picture Segment Description
Folge2557-1
Scene Nils, Samson and Finchen are playing Ludo, when they hear a loud noise coming from Rumpel, so they go over to him to see what's going on. Rumpel is listening to what he thinks is music, more specifically the 3rd noise symphony by Ludwig van Krachhoven. Nils asks Rumpel not to listen to that noise all day, so Rumpel gets an idea: he is going to compose his own symphony.
Folge2557-2
Scene Rumpel has set up various instruments for his symphony: cans on a string, a pair of typewriters and some horns. However, he soon discovers that he can't play all the instruments at the same time.
Folge2557-3
Scene Rumpel decides to try and put the instruments closer together and he gives it another try, but still finds it difficult to reach the various instruments in time. Meanwhile Nils, Samson and Finchen conclude that, judging by the sounds they hear from Rumpel, he might need some help. They go over to him and volunteer to help play his symphony. Rumpel is reluctant at first; after all, they are not Grouches, but ends up accepting their help, with the requirement that he will be the conductor.
Folge2557-4
Scene Before they start, Nils insists that they test their instruments first. Afterwards they start to play as Rumpel does the conducting and singing. Rumpel is happy with the result.
Folge2557-5
Scene They continue to play, but it's starting to get out of hand for Rumpel as his musicians are starting to find it funny. Rumpel is shocked, because a Grouch symphony isn't supposed to be fun. It should be loud and horrible. Nils, Samson and Finchen confirm that it's loud and horrible but still fun. After thinking about it, Rumpel accepts the fact that the symphony is also fun for some.
