Hyronomous, a lonely frog prince, lives in a bog in the kingdom of Spamelot. Hyronomous is bored and unhappy as a frog. He's larger than the other frogs and hates the taste of flies. One day, the good witch Gloria appears to tell him he was once a human prince and it was a spell that turned him into an amphibian. To break this croak-filled wizardry, Hyronomous must be kissed by a maiden. After a hilarious adventure, our beloved frog finally gets his kiss from the handmaiden Delphinium, bringing about an ending full of wit and charm.!

This tale begins as Arthur, trying to take a fast buck, is accused of poaching by the Black Knight. He attacks the king and even though Arthur defends himself valiantly with a rubber chicken - defeats him. IN order to keep his kingdom, Arthur must answer the most difficult riddle ever: What do women most desire? A hag from the wood can provide the answer, but only if Arthur can find a knight to marry the loathsome lady. Sir Gawain, an impetuous young knight, volunteers to defend the king's honor before he meets his bride-to-be. Will Gawain be true to his word? Only the answer to another riddle will keep everyone living happily ever after!
