Additional Info

Esmerelda is your basic, run of the mill, spoiled rotten Princess. Her dad and mom rule - sort of - the kingdom of Chaotica, assisted by Esmerelda's off-the-wall fairy godmother, Martha Cracklespooner - Cracky, for short. One day, Prince Ichabod arrives at the castle, romance in mind. Then, fearsome, horrid, awful Bogle creatures storm the castle, bent on disruptive take-over. Pandemonium reigns, and it's up to the Prince, Cracky and the good guys, even Esmerelda, to face these evil invaders! Great songs and a delicious romp through fantasy-land with a loveable crew of clever characters.
