Storyline

King Midas is visited by an elf; the elf turns his cat to gold, then claps his hands and it changes back. Midas begs for the golden touch, but the elf warns him it would be a curse to him. Midas insists. He dances about joyfully at first, but discovers the drawbacks when he sits down to dinner. Fearing death by starvation, he summons the elf and agrees to surrender everything he owns to have the curse lifted. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Quotes

King Midas: [singing] I'm known as Rich King Midas / And when you look at me / You'll see a king / Who knows a thing / About his treasury / I never cared for women / I've never cared for wine / But when I count / A large amount / Of money - Ha ha! - It's divine / Gold, gold, gold! / I worship it, I love it / Gold, gold, gold! / I wish I had more of it / My love for shining gold is such / That I could never have too much / I wish that everything I touched / Would turn to gold, gold gold!

One of the best Silly Symphonies
27 December 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

This is just a superb retelling of the King Midas story, who asked that everything he touched be turned to stone. The jokes in this one are extremely clever. I especially like the visualization of the skeleton in the mirror and the elf. 10/10.
