Little Prince Sid is sick and tired of being spoiled and given things, things, things. All he wants is his parents to be with him, but they are always needed elsewhere. Fed up, Little Sid leaves the castle in search of happiness. He searches the village, then continues through the forest in search of wise people who can help. It isn’t until he is hanging off a cliff, about to die, when he eats a strawberry as his last meal and is then rescued, that he realizes he has found happiness. He returns to the castle enlightened and begins changing things - giving his things away, making others happy, and finally at the end of the day getting his parents to just be with him.
