A short-lived ABC sitcom that ran from March 1987 to February 1988. Snow White (Caitlin O’Heaney initially, then Carol Huston) and Prince Eric Charming (Christopher Rich) doze off in the Enchanted Forest and wake to find themselves in the wacky, incomprehensible world of the 1980s in Van Oaks, California.

Stuck in the ‘burbs, the Prince penned kids’ stories and Snow White designed dresses to support the household consisting of their two sons, Cory and Thomas, mean stepmother Lillian (Judy Parfitt), – who cast the spell that put them to sleep in the first place – Luther a helpful dwarf (Cork Hubbert) and various storybook characters who arrived via stepmother Lillian’s misfiring spells.

Luther did find the transformation tricky, although he began attending college and was a dab hand with the housework.
