Q1: I have no idea about this. Any idea about what kind of situation is this? Crooks?

Crooks tumble over rocks and little birds sing.

Q2: I've tried to figure out this but failed. Is this correct expression? If so, what does that mean?

Graves’ designs have been so popular and in great demand in the world wide since he blended classical household items with his own distinctive and clover touch.

Q3: In this sentences, does 'fascination' mean 'his ability' or 'his eagerness/love for those things--colors, textures and materials'?

In the 1970s, when a furniture company asked him to design a furniture display, he took on the job. This experience with furniture design made him a consummate designer of domestic products because he could couple his experience with his fascination for colors, textures and materials.

Q4: What do you think 'They' refer to? Parodies? Or characters? Or the sources?

The reason you find the parodies of those characters so funny is that the sources are very familiar to you. They come from lots of famous fairy tales, and the movies put humorous twists on them by exaggerating or making fun of them.

Hard to tell without context -- but perhaps "creeks tumble over rocks and little birds sing." It sounds like a description of a pretty scene in nature.
