Ultimately ending with the pea under several layers of mattresses.Features additional supporting characters-the Queen's husband the King (silent-since he is under a curse), a dancing jester, a traveling singing Minstrel, the Queen's trusted confidante the Wizard, and a whole kingdom of knights and ladies.
