This paper presents a method to interactively create a new Sandmännchen story. We built an application which is deployed on a smart speaker, interacts with a user, selects appropriate segments from a database of Sandmännchen episodes and combines them to generate a new story that is compatible with the user requests. The underlying video analysis technologies are presented and evaluated. We additionally showcase example results from using the complete application, as a proof of concept.
