Looney TV news anchor Rick Flick reports on the mysterious coma that has overcome all the residents of the King’s Court. The coma is the work of the evil Pixie Patrick of Paxton, who perpetrated the curse because lovely Princess Briar Rose failed to invite him to the gala palace ball. Once the curse is set loose, the race is on to find the one true Prince who can awaken the Sleeping Princess–and her entire court–with a magical kiss. Of course, Patrick will have none of it–unless he himself can be the Kissing Prince and marry the lovely Briar Rose himself! Lots of laughs and lots of action but, in the end, the sweet, romantic story of Sleeping Beauty is told with charm, humor and care.
