Presenting Princess Prunella, the pill. Proud, prissy, and peevish, she lives in a pink palace with her pinheaded parents, her three plump pussycats, and her prize puppydog, Pug. Her aspirations? To marry a pinheaded prince, with piles of pinmoney, who will praise and pamper her. A perfectly plausible plan, until a mysterious old Wise Woman appears, is pooh-poohed by the pompous prince, and promptly puts a spell on her for being spoiled and stuck-up. On the princess's pretty nose sprouts a purple peanut. How putrid!
