So, off they go to visit the castle of Wacko’s college buddy, King Leopold, and before you can say, “Give me a smooch, lovely princess,” delusions and disasters, bickering and brooding overcome everyone in the castle.

Toss in the demands of Prince Brilliance and Prince Charm and chaos quickly reigns.

Mother Goose is ashamed of how subservient the women in Fairytale Land behave, so has decided to teach them a lesson by magically whisking all the males to Nevernever Land in order to find out if the females will be able to survive without a male to tell them what to do and when and how and where.

But, as the curtain rises, something has gone terribly awry! The Prince is strangely left behind and his once carefree, chauvinistic life as the only Prince Charming in Fairytale Land is soon torn asunder.

Cinderella, Gretel, Wicked Witch, Muffet, Jill, Bo Peep, Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Mary Had A Little Lamb and Baby Bear, quickly learn that they have more inner fortitude than they would have ever believed possible.

Poor Mother Goose hasn’t counted on a malevolent force doing her in, though, and soon finds herself the one in need of help. Prince Charming and Cinderella with the help of the fairytale females do finally save the crazy day.

Twenty-five Characters: 6 M, 19 F
order

Princess Pearl is called Perversity behind her back, as she doesn’t think or act like the other princesses whose lives totally revolve around, “pleasing a prince.”

Prince Vladamire is called Flibbet behind his back because he’s a flibbetty-gibbet who doesn’t act like the horseback-riding, sword-wielding princes.

When Perversity and Flibbet unexpectedly meet, the peaceful kingdom finds itself torn asunder. The two of them unite and everyone soon takes sides.

The madames quickly find themselves in the middle of the dilemma, instead of happily teaching the princesses how to bake and sing and knit, much to their very very very loud dismay.

And, peasant girl Roxanne’s personality change from bubbling and carefree to brooding and irritable adds even more worry to all who adore her.

After numerous bouts of tears and tantrums, everyone in the kingdom finally accepts the fact that what’s gone on “before” isn’t necessarily the “only way,” and all live “happily ever after.”

It’s the year 2015. Excellento and Perfectrina Toymaker have just returned to their Toy Shop in the United States after five years of visiting their other shops in the world, only to discover that all is not as they had left it.

While the Toymakers were gone, their Artisans were tricked into allowing Mister and Missus Run-of-the-Mill to build a fast-toy factory, which is slowly ruining the natural terrain of Toy Land. And even worse, it’s depriving the American children of the joy of playing with quality, handmade toys, as their parents aren’t interested in purchasing long lasting toys, any longer.

Junior is on a quest to find the Toymaker. His older sister, Sis is tagging along to make sure he doesn’t get lost. When Junior and Sis are confronted by Run-of-the-Mill’s two spoiled children, Mitsy and Bitsy, they quickly realize there’s trouble in paradise.

Excellento and Perfectrina Toymaker and the Artisans eventually restore Toy Land back to normal with the help of Junior, Sis and their little sister, Babe, while the Run-of-the-Mill’s are reported to the Environmental Protection Agency. Rightly so.
