The Way Things Work - Screws


In Screws, inhabitants of Mammoth Island are in the process of building a new observation tower out of stone blocks when one of the islanders gets trapped at the top of the tower. With the help of a visiting gallant knight and his trusty mammoth, they are able to build a ramp around the circular structure and create a giant simple machine known as a screw. Turning the tower into a giant screw allows the islanders to spin the tower down into the soil, bringing the trapped inhabitant of Mammoth Island close to the ground -- and saving the day!
