''Yume no Crayon Oukoku'' (''Crayon Kingdom of Dreams'') is an anime series that ran from 1997-1999. It is based on a series of novels by Fukunaga Keizo.

The civilians of the Crayon Kingdom have always viewed their Princess Silver as a twelve-year old girl with a beautiful smile. However, unknown to them, the princess has 12 bad habits. One day, a party is held to celebrate Silver's twelfth birthday. The princess is so busy trying to find a suitable dance-partner that she forgets to hide her bad habits. The boy she thinks suitable to dance with refuses to dance, and after a short quarrel, he changes Silver's parents, the King and Queen, into stone. Silver learns that only the Grim Reaper is capable of casting a spell like that, and she assumes that the boy was actually him in disguise. Along with a pig named Stonston and a chicken named Araessa, she begins a quest to find the boy Reaper.
