Once upon a time, the King Beauregard and Queen Crystallina decide to hold a huge party celebrating the birth of their beautiful baby daughter The Princess Beauty.
Everyone in the village was invited: that is everyone except Maleficent whose invitation was mistakenly lost by Master Rusty Bucket!
Thinking she had been left out, Maleficent placed a curse on the baby saying that by the time the princess reached the age of sixteen if she hadn’t found true love, she would prick her finger on a spindle and fall into a deep sleep from which she would never waken unless she is kissed by a prince who is honest and true.
The King and Queen enlist the help and special magic of Fairy Lush, Fairy Blush and Fairy Mint to help shield the princess from the evil magic spell: They ask the fairies to take the Princess to live in their cottage hidden in the Fairy Forest and keep her safe until after her sixteenth birthday.
Together with Herbert Grrrinch, Sir StinkBomb of Sunderland and Captain Jack, Nurse Nit-Wit sets sail for foreign shores to try and find some magic to overcome the evil spell of Maleficent. On the way, they encounter snow storms thunderstorms and plenty of mayhem.
