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 writing on the board in the first scenes with the prince changes between long shots and close-ups. See more »
For many years, England was ruled by a wise and good king, and the people flourished and were very happy, but by and by, the good king became ill, and a darkness fell over the countryside.

The original theatrical version included a scene before the ending credits featuring Horace Horsecollar telling the audiences that they will be experiencing an intermission and encourages the audience to get snacks before the feature begins while Mickey and the Prince make fun of him, they then tell the audience to stay tuned for The Rescuers Down Under while a countdown begins.

as it happens, I don't actually know the original story
Disney's short adaptation of "The Prince and the Pauper" delivers the expected slapstick stuff, with appearances by a number of the Mouse House's famous characters. I've never read Mark Twain's original story, although it's safe to guess that this is a loose adaptation even so. One thing that I noticed was that Frank Welker voiced both the king and archbishop. This was unusual for him. While he often provides voices for cartoons - namely Fred on "Scooby Doo" and Ray on "The Real Ghostbusters" - it seems like he seldom does multiple voices in a single production (he often provides voice effects, as in "All Dogs Go to Heaven"). As for some of the other cast members, Arthur Burghardt, who voices Pete, played the Great Ahmed Kahn in "Network", while Elvia Allman, who voices Clarabelle, appeared as Lucy's and Ethel's boss in the candy factory.
Anyway, it's nothing special but entertaining.
