SCENE Abby and Rosita welcome the viewer while they wait for their laundry to finish. Leela brings their clothes out, which are princess outfits for them to wear while playing princess today. A female penguin admires the outfits and wants to join them. They give her a costume and they begin a princess dance. Abby says she can jump high, while Rosita jumps higher. The penguin takes a mighty leap, jumping the highest, sending her up onto a high balcony. They begin to panic, when...

SCENE cont'd ..the handsome prince (Paul Rudd) from such stories as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel arrives, singing his princely theme. He tries to save Princess Penguin using the Rapunzel method, asking her to lower her hair. But, the penguin has no hair. The prince doesn't know what to do, so he begins running around sobbing. Rosita gets an idea that penguins can't fly, but Abby can! Abby floats up and brings them penguin back down. The prince doesn't understand how the princess was saved without him, but marks it off as a one-time fluke and goes off to find more princesses.
SCENE cont'd Now, the princesses begin skating. But, Princess Penguin only has one skate. The prince prances back to the street with a solution - giving her a glass slipper. The slipper hinders her skating ability and the prince begins moping. Rosita and Abby look for the skate and they find it over by the wall. The prince leaves to save his reputation. They all begin skating fast and faster and Princess Penguin skates the fastest...

SCENE cont'd ...but goes so fast, she gets stuck in a mailbox. The princess comes back and is upset to find it's them again. He tries the Sleeping Beauty method to get the penguin out, by kissing her feet, with no success. The girls explain that just because they're princesses, that doesn't mean they need a prince's help and that to get the penguin out, they need to cooperate. The prince has never tried that, but gives it a shot. After a few tugs, they pull the penguin out.
SCENE cont'd The prince is about to leave, when the girls ask him to stay because they do need his help now; they need an extra person to play Princess Football with.
