Unfortunately villains also exist in this magical place and under the instruction of the evil leader Doomsby; Captain Hook, The Wicked Queen, The Queen of Hearts and all their frightening friends kidnap Happily Everafter, the character who ensures that the stories turn out well for the heroes. It’s up to Once-Upon Atime, Happily’s fiancée to work together with the heroes to ensure that happy endings are returned to childrens’ books before bedtime.

The show earned raved reviews on Facebook.
