King Midas already has billions of dollars in gold, but he lusts after more. Along comes an elf who offers him the golden touch. At first he enjoys greatly, running around, touching everything. However, he soon comes to the obvious conclusion that he needs sustenance and must beg for freedom from his own foolishness. This is a well drawn and quickly paced cartoon.
