Long ago in a land with an ailing king, there was a pair of boys who looked exactly alike, a pauper called Mickey and the other, the Crown Prince. Mickey dreamed of plenty and an easy life as Royalty and the Prince dreamed of the freedom as a subject. Happenstance throws them together and their mutual resemblence inspires the pair to switch identities to see how the other lives. To their surprise, Mickey learns of the duties and responsibilties of royalty while the Prince learns to his horror that the Royal Captain of the Guard has taken advantage of the existing power vacuum to inflict brutal tyranny on the subjects. Now the Prince must react to this evil, unaware that the Captain knows about the identity swap and is using it to his own advantage while dominating Mickey who play the Heir to the Throne. Written by

The best short film ever maded in the Disney Studios' "Renaissance" years
I absolutely love it! Mickey's my favorite Disney character, and his pal Pluto and Donald Duck, who are also in this film too; with Donald as a valet. And it's the best short film ever maded in the Disney Studios' "Renaissance" years. I love the storyline it's a good adaptation of Mark Twain's classic book by the same name featuring Mickey and his friends. Twain is also the author of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer;" also I love literary films (including literary theatrical shorts).
Personally, I think Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy too are great character actors of their time.
