Snow White and Prince Charming fell asleep in the Enchanted Forest and woke up in 20th-century California in this slightly off-centered continuation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. According to the legend, the beautiful couple threw Snow White's wicked stepmother, Queen Lillian, into a bottomless pit and lived happily ever after. Unfortunately, the pit was not really bottomless, just very, very deep, and when the furious Queen managed to climb out, she cast a spell so powerful that even she couldn't control it. Everybody - Snow White, the Prince, their two young sons, the dwarf, the Magic Mirror, and even the Queen herself - fell asleep for centuries.

They all woke up in 1987 in Van Oaks, California and found themselves coping with the modern, not-so-quaint world of American suburbia. The handsome Prince, still in his tights and referring to his "castle" (a suburban home), became a writer of children's stories; Snow, a dress designer; and their young sons, Thomas and Cory, schoolchildren. The dwarf, Luther, helped around the house. Spoiling the fun was Queen Lillian, a vain, vengeful and still powerful in-law who lived upstairs. Jealous of the happy lovebirds, she would periodically cast spells to disrupt their plans and alarm the neighbors, who didn't understand the new couple on the block at all. A botched attempt to send everyone back to the Forest just brought Cinderella into the 20th century, to flirt with Eric; a few magic beans carelessly thrown out her window produced Jack and the Beanstalk in their yard. Even Lillian's sole companion, the Magic Mirror (which had a sarcastic personality of its own) failed to calm her down.

Sally and Don were the befuddled neighbors who, in true sitcom fashion, never caught on.
