Once Upon A Time, has crash landed in Suburbia!
Cinderella is an animated series of hilarious half-hour episodes
about Cinderella and her Prince Charming and their post-fairy-tale family
after they crash land in the middle of the modern day suburbia. The Charmings
behave as if genteel manners are still in vogue and they expect that everyone
around them should defer to them as befits royalty. Their neighbors, the
Bungholes, think that having good manners means lifting up your butt when
you fart, that everyone should have an open marriage, and that the Charmings
are ignorantly arrogant.
Cinderella is the very one we all know and love who fit the fateful
shoe. Sweet, kind, naive, she remains forever lovable, but does suffer
monstrously powerful fits of anger. Only now she's married with a child
and living in suburbia and possibly more famous than ever as her best
selling book From Peon to Princess Just By Saying I Do tops the
New York Times best seller list. Prince Charming mistakenly thinks
that Duke is a nobleman and the Charmings daughter, the dangerously delusional
Fanny May, thinks that Stinky is an evil troll. Fairy Godmother is hip
to Candy's 'friendly neighbor' act and constantly turns Duke into deliciously
Duke and Candy Bunghole may not be sure they like having a castle next
door, but they are sure they want to swing with the Prince and Cinderella.
While Candy wants to polish his princely pole and Duke wants to sink his
titanic in Cinderella's depths, the Charmings misunderstand their every
sexual advance as just being neighborly.
Animated introduction online at:
MEET THE CHARMINGS
The Prince is to the 90's what the Pope is to pro-choice. Women swoon
at his overly gracious manners and men want to make him a hood ornament.
His quaint perception of life renders him clueless to the point that he
believes Duke Bunghole to be a nobleman because of his name.
Sweet, kind, and lovable describe Cinderella until she's pissed off, then
her literal inner monster emerges to remind the offender of who wears
the crown. Although more worldly than her Prince, Cinderella still waltzes
through life believing that everyone can be a princess.
Unlike the Charmings, Fairy Godmother's view of the 90's is 20/20. She
fully understands what the Bungholes are up to and when no one is looking
she zaps Duke into the sleazy animal he is. Meanwhile the Bungholes dismiss
her as the benevolent, but weird, grandmother type.
As a princes daughter, she gets away with anything. In her delusional
world, King Arthur lives and as she's a knight sworn to destroy evil she
tries to skewer the loathsome troll, Stinky, at every opportunity and
she sees everyone who's in trouble as a damsel in distress.
The lap dog Prince Charming always wanted, but he does come in handy when
lighting a fire. Fanny May rides him as if he's her trusty steed. He just
doesn't have a whole lot of patience for the Bungholes horny dog Humper.
NOW MEET THE BUNGHOLES
Crass and crude Duke believes he's God's gift to women and he can't quite
understand how Cinderella is able to ignore his amorous advances.It's
not that things aren't steamy in the Bunghole boudoire. They are...it's
just that he's tired of wearing the french maid's uniform every time.
She is a sexual predator who likes nothing better than the challenge of
snaring a male who doesn't immediately lust after her. Her current obsession
is with Prince Charming and can't be bothered with remembering her son,
With a name like "Stinky Bunghole" this kid has got to be mean. Duke's
son is so mean, he takes lunch money from the corner drug dealers. Stinky
nearly blows his bad ass image every time he runs away shrieking from
the sword-wielding Fanny May. "
He's the Everready horn dog. No orifice or appendage is safe around the
Bungholes horny mutt. When no outside source of satisfaction is available
for his urgent needs, he carries around a mauve pillow in which to satisfy
his never-ending desires.
AFTER 3 DAYS, FISH AND FAMILY START TO SMELL
Cinderella's ugly stepsisters come to visit the Charmings and it's not
exactly a happy family reunion. Even Humper has to think twice about approaching
Candy and Duke invite Cinderella and Prince Charming to a swingers' party
where couples are swapping more than recipes and golf stories.
The Charmings take a vacation with the Bungholes in an RV. Prince Charming
is amazed at the moving castle; Duke wants to share more than a ride;
Stinky just wants to avoid Fanny May; and Humper spreads his, um, joy
across the land.
