A giant is menacing the king and his army. When the giant pulls at the king's pants and causes a rip, the embarrassed king visits the tailor to have them repaired. As the tailor works, he snacks on honey, which attracts a swarm of bees. The bees find their way into the king's pants and begin stinging him. The king jumps into a nearby pond to evade the bees while knights chase the tailor for causing the king's distress. The giant returns and tries to drown the king. The tailor throws honey on the giant, causing both the giant and the bees to forget the king and battle each other. The king rewards the tailor's ingenuity with a golden needle, which the tailor must use to mend the king's pants yet again. Written by Melissa

An Ironic Story
23 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Irony" might be one way to describe this little fairy tale about a king who has a rip in his pants and goes to a local tailor to get if fixed. Meanwhile, a giant ogre has apparently been terrorizing the town.

Fixing the pants, having bees get into the king's pants, having the king trapped in a pond ready to be killed by the ogre and then having the bees come back and get rid of the beast all tie in together in this strangely-compelling cartoon.

I didn't find myself laughing at anything in this cartoon, yet it was pretty fascinating. It certainly made me stick with it to see what crazy thing would happen next and how all of this could somehow lead to a happy ending. That ending, by the way, is a nice one but also has a strange element to it (which I won't spoil.) Don't expect laughs, but don't pass this UB Iwerks "oldie" up, either. It offers a very interesting story.
