Evildoers of our kingdom...

we're always the losers,

the bad guys.

Is that fair? No.

Starting tonight...

I give you happily n'ever after!

Hold it, hold it, hold it!

Would the owner of a light blue coach with

"Narnia" plates please move your vehicle?

You're parked in a "Trolls Only" zone.

Thank you.

While I have your attention,

you see that there?

That's what we call a "wicked stepmother."

Feel free to boo.

I know what you're thinking.

Who put a wicked stepmother in charge?

Were there free elections?

Any chance of a recount?

You know what?

Let's go back a little...

and I'll give you

the lowdown on Fairytale Land.

Yeah, the name's kind of corny...

but we had to call it something,

and "Canada" was already taken.

So, anyway, in this tower

high above the prince's palace...

is what you might call the Department

of Fairytale Land Security.

This is where all the stories-

you know the ones-


Sleeping Beauty...

the Frog Prince-

are watched over by a wizard.

And his job is to make sure

every fairy tale goes by the book...

right up to their happy endings.

And that's why he has these:

the scales of good and evil.

See that? They have

a little pointer and everything.

As long he keeps those things

in balance, the stories never change...

and the endings

stay happy, happy, happy.

The wizard also has two assistants:

Munk and Mambo.

Munk's the guy who sees

the glass as half empty.

Mambo's the guy who...

probably peed in the glass.

You know what I'm talking about-

a world-class troublemaker.

Yeah. These are the guys you want to

trust your happy ending to.

Here's our story.

Remember her?

She was the one with the whole...

"Evil, evil, blah, blah, blah"

speech a minute ago.

Anyway, let me fill you in

on everyone in this particular tale.

We've got one wicked stepmother...

and two ugly stepsisters.

Delicate flowers of womanhood.

One fairy godmother.

I think she's a couple Hansels short

of a Gretel. You know what I'm sayin'?

One Prince Charming.

Hold the charm.

And then there's one fair maiden.


You probably know her

as Cinderella...

but she's always been Ella to me.

She's in love with

that prince you just saw.

What does Ella see in Prince

Potato Head? I have no idea.

But just look at her.

She's so beautiful.

A girl like that could never

fall for an ordinary guy like-

So, you might be wondering

by now who I am.

Have a look.

No, not Blondie McBiceps.

No. Look to the left.

Keep going.

There I am. You know

the Cinderella story, right?

Remember Rick the servant?

Of course you don't. I'm the guy

who polishes the prince's boots.

I'm the guy who washes

his dishes and serves his meals...

and does his laundry

and flosses his teeth.

You know what kind of happy

ending the royal flosser gets?



So, that's everyone important-

and me.

Okay, let's see the title now.

Happier music, please.

So here we are,

the day of the prince's ball.

I managed to swipe some mail

from the royal messenger's bag...

so I'd have an excuse to visit Ella.

Hello? Oh, Rick, it's you.

I'm sorry to be

such a disappointment.

No, no. I was expecting

the royal messenger.

With these?

They're here!

Did you see him today?

What was he wearing?

One for my stepmother,

two for my stepsisters...

and none for me.

Wait. What's that?

You've got somethin'... here.

I'm invited too!

Just like I've dreamed about.

The royal ball.

And he'll be there in his royal shirt-

And his royal boots-

which Rick spent two hours polishing.

And it was a royal pain in the butt.

I may even
