Original Publisher


Created by

Jim Handy


The king (who appeared somewhat slow and dim-witted) offers his daughter's hand in marriage to the wealthiest suitor in the kingdom. She is wooed by the despicable wizard Ali Kazam, but falls for a pauper boy with a yo-yo. The boy is kicked out of the palace by the king's men, whereupon the diminutive magical creature Nicky Nome appears to help him, giving him a flying carpet to travel to a valley of jewels. When Ali Kazam attacks on a vulture, Nicky gradually transforms the carpet into a Chevrolet motor car and the villain is defeated.


  • The Princess and the Pauper is a 1939 Technicolor cartoon sponsored film by Chevrolet. The depiction of several of the characters is mildly racist in its exaggeration.
