This video obsoletes my previously submitted video by 3470 frames (57.83 seconds). The entire improvement is a result of two new shortcuts discovered by Aqfaq:
  • By simply staying very close to the river in the area where you pick up the pebbles, it's possible to get to the area with the mushroom and the hole in the ground without using the eagle. Since you can just as easily leave this area, this means you can use the mushroom to enter the leprechaun lair through the "back door", which means you won't encounter the rat, which also means you don't have to get the cheese needed to bypass said rat.
  • From the area with the hole in the ground, it's possible to get to the island where the gnome is located without having to cross any of the bridges guarded by trolls. This means you don't need help from the goat to get to the gnome, which also means you don't need to pick up the carrot.

Major thanks to Aqfaq for his help with this run.

NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. Here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.

Truncated: Nice shortcuts here.
To encoder: use the modified file on Microstorage when encoding. To publisher: force Bisqwit/DeHackEd/adelikat to switch movie files before publishing.

adelikat: Replaced the submission file with an updated one by the author that uses a new strategy. TODO: explain strat and time difference.
