Summary
In 12th century England, the infant king is usurped by the wicked King Roderick. Black Fox and his band attempt to restore the rightful king to the throne by having a member of their group infiltrate the court by posing as the jester. Things get zany when the jester is hypnotized into believing he is an assassin and switches identities at the snap of finger, the King's daughter falls for the jester, people randomly sing what are supposed to be recognition codes, and a sorceress interferes
