The hallmark of Faerie Tale Theatre has always been its innocence. In "Sleeping Beauty", there are just too many "adult" (i.e. sexual) innuendos to continue that innocence. Though the innuendos themselves are somewhat humorous (thanks to the acting of Christopher Reeve), they are still just out of place in this series.

Besides Reeve, Bernadette Peters and Beverly D'Angelo most primarily guest star.

This is an episode that can easily be skipped in your journey through this series.
