A young Monkey Prince wants to find a lovely princess to wed, but fears rejection because of simian sensibilities. When he frees a fairy from an enchanted stone, she promises the prince anything he desires. He wishes to not be a monkey and the fairy gets creative, turning him into something slimy instead of suave. The frog-monkey prince is sure he’ll find love in his new state, until he runs into a woman who might help.
