The Princess Who Had Never Laughed | 1985
Princess Henrietta is the daughter of a stern king, who has been humorless since the death of his fun-loving wife several years before the tale begins and therefore has banned fun and laughter throughout his kingdom. Under the tutelage of a solemn governess and a straight-laced tutor, the sad Princess yearns for happiness. To help his daughter overcome her unhappy state, the King stages a comedy competition at the palace seeking any of his subjects to make his daughter laugh. The funniest comedian is guaranteed the Princess' hand in marriage. None succeed until the last-minute appearance of Weinerhead Waldo, who breaks up Henrietta and also wins her heart.
