The Fairie Tale Theatre franchise put out by Shelly Duvall was a benchmark on the programming put out on Showtime in the early-mid 80's. This unique tale stars Barkin as a Princess who has never even cracked a smile. So, the King (Howard Hessman) puts together a "laugh off" featuring all of the comics in the kingdom stating that - "Whomever shall make the Princess laugh shall have her hand in Marriage". Hilarious routines by some of the most distinguished names (at that time)in comedy. Howie Mandel turns in a sweet performance as a young man who seems obsessed with his friendship with a pig. Great Family Fun! Despite what this website shows -- the entire series was released on DVD in August of 2004. Find this one and give it a look.
