The Princess & the Mattress
DEBUT 1986

The Princess & the Mattress is a story Maria reads to OSCAR THE GROUCHs niece IRVINE while he feeds the elephants. Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Princess & the Pea", it tells the story of a GROUCHY prince, played by OSCAR himself, who has a burning desire to marry an equally GROUCHY princess to spend the rest of his life arguing with. He plans in advance by preparing a GROUCH bed of hard, UNcomfortable bricks. Only he puts them on a mattress. Whenever a princess prospect comes to visit, he plans to let her rest on the bricks & see if she can feel that mattress underneath. Sure enough, 1 day he is paid a visit by a GROUCH claiming to be a princess (fittingly portrayed by OSCARs girlfriend, GRUNDGETTA). He invites her to take a nap & sure enough, she feels the mattress within seconds. Her anger with Prince OSCARs practical joke is exactly what he was looking for. He proposes to her & she refuses. An argument over whether to get married or not begins, & eventually Prince OSCAR wins the princess over. The 2 of them live GROUCHily ever after. At the end of the story, OSCARs niece IRVINE cries hysterically, which, according to her UNCLE OSCAR, means that she liked it.
