A simple whipping boy and a very bratty prince known as Jemmy and Prince Brat, escape the castle grounds into the real world full of kidnappers and dungy sewer rats. In the castle, Jemmy got whipped whenever Prince Brat got in trouble because it was forbidden to spank the heir to the throne. Prince Brat did not want to be treated so royaly and did not want to learn his ABC's therefore wanting to escap Jemmy did not want to be whipped also wanting to escape. They escape and find themselves kidnapped by Hold-Your-Nose Billy and Cutwater,the two horrible kidnappers. As Jemmy and Prince Brat try to escape them, they form a bond and work together, slowly foming a rather unusual friendship. Escaping the forest and running through the sewers was a tough task but they made it together, trusting each other. Finally, they reach back to the castle grounds leaving behind their huge adventure. The King was happy to see them and became very joyful- which was certainly, not like the king.
