In olden times when wishing still helped one, there lived a king whose daughters were all beautiful, but the youngest was so beautiful that the sun itself, which has seen so much, was astonished whenever it shone in her face. Close by the king’s castle lay a great dark forest, and under an old lime-tree in the forest was a well, and when the day was very warm, the king’s child went out into the forest and sat down by the side of the cool fountain, and when she was bored she took a golden ball, and threw it up on high and caught it, and this ball was her favorite play thing.

Now it so happened that on one occasion the princess’s golden ball did not fall into the little hand which she was holding up for it, but on to the ground beyond, and rolled straight into the water. The king’s daughter followed it with her eyes, but it vanished, and the well was deep, so deep that the bottom could not be seen. At this she began to cry, and cried louder and louder, and could not be comforted. And as she thus lamented someone said to her, “What ails you, king’s daughter? You weep so that even a stone would show pity.”

“Oh yes,” said she, “I promise you all you wish, if you will but bring me my ball back again.” But she thought, “How the silly frog does talk. All he does is to sit in the water with the other frogs, and croak. He can be no companion to any human being.”

The Frog Prince , part of the Tales from Muppetland series, was released in syndication on May 12, 1971 . This one-hour version of the classic fairy tale is narrated by Kermit the Frog .

A small frog who lands near the pond where Kermit and some other frogs have gathered claims that he is under a witch's spell and is actually a prince named Sir Robin the Brave . Kermit and his pals, Gawain , Kay , Garth , and Ector , skeptical about the frog's true identity, sing about the joys and advantages of being a frog.

Princess Melora who talks mixed-up as the result of a witch's curse, befriends the Frog Prince and takes him to her palace. But before the spell on the frog can be broken, he must fend off the Princess' Aunt Taminella , who is actually the witch in disguise. Taminella has fooled Melora's gullible father, King Rupert the Second , into believing that she is his long-lost sister -- and that she deserves to wear the crown.

" The Frog Prince; or, Iron Henry " ( German : Der Froschkönig oder der eiserne Heinrich , literally "The Frog King; or, The Iron Heinrich") is a fairy tale , best known through the Brothers Grimm 's written version; traditionally it is the first story in their collection.

Although the story is best known today through the Grimm Brothers' rendition of it, parts of it may extend back until at least Roman times; a version of the story is apparently referred to in Petronius 's Satyricon , in which the character Trimalchio remarks that, "qui fuit rana nunc est rex" ("The man who was once a frog is now a king."). [1] Other scholars, however, argue that this may actually be a jab at the emperor Nero , who was often mockingly compared to a frog. [2]

In the tale, a spoiled princess reluctantly befriends the Frog Prince (meeting him after dropping a gold ball into a pond), who magically transforms into a handsome prince. Although in modern versions the transformation is invariably triggered by the princess kissing the frog, in the original Grimm version of the story the frog's spell was broken when the princess threw it against a wall in disgust.
