Princess Marigold lives in a magic land of wizards and fairies. Marigold is the daughter of King Florian who rules over a jolly little kingdom where, at first, his biggest problem was to see his daughter married to a handsome prince. This she does after meeting Prince Strongbow
but only after she has offended the evil Wizard Weezle who promptly turns the King, the Princess and all the courtiers into animals.
A dip in the magic lake returns them to normal and, after their marriage, the Prince and Princess have two children Prince Rupert and Princess Rose whose lives are forever troubled by Weezle and his evil ways, whether it is putting a shrinking spell on the King, covering Marigold Land with thick snow or even sending everybody back in time to the age of dinosaurs.
