Storyline

A partial updating of the Cinderella story. When the fairy godmother is late, Cinderella calls the police, who put out an APB and find her in a bar. Her first attempt at turning the pumpkin (canned) and mice into a coach produces Santa. Cinderella gets to the ball (in a stagecoach) and meets Prince Charming Egghead. They dance, and spend some quality time on the balcony. Midnight, dropped slipper, and all that; Egghead finds her house with the help of some neon signs, but all that's there is a note that she got tired of waiting and went to a Warner Bros. show. She pops up from the audience, and they head off to the tenth row together. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Tex Avery's take on Cinderella, with Egghead as a most un-Princely Charming fellow!

Anyone who has seen an Egghead cartoon will find the idea of his being Prince Charming quite humorous. If you've seen much by Tex Avery, you know that when he's done, this won't much resemble the fairy tale as you hear it when you were younger. This is not your grandmother's Cinderella! The sight gags are great, as usual, Egghead is Egghead and the closing line is hilarious. Well worth watching. Recommended.
