No you're not hearing things, that toadstool did burp and now all the others will join in.
This is a possible scenario where children's drawings could be brought to life for a new and free online stage production being hosted by Theatr Clwyd.
Families can join in the Roustabout Theatre production this Saturday on Zoom and send their kid's photos by email before the show.
The company uses wild ideas and suggestions from its young audience to create original fairy tales in a series of animated drawings.

Now, Roustabout has created a new online version so the family fun can continue during lockdown restrictions.
Tech "wizard" Will Monks says he can turn artwork into scenery for a play with the actors performing inside a child's drawing.
"That’s exactly what we have worked out how to do and any drawing sent to us before the show could feature in the performance," said Will.
"We can even animate them so they move.

"When we decided to create a live online show for children, we wanted to use the technology available on Zoom in a way that had never been done before."
Roustabout will hold two shows this Saturday, 31 October, at 1130am and 2.30pm.
