The villainous Ratso takes over a medieval castle and traps the staff and most of the royal family in a mirror. It's up to CJ Frog (the royal flycatcher who wants to become a knight) and his sidekick Edison to solve math problems so they can collect various ingredients for potions to free those imprisoned. The princess, who escaped the fate of her family and friends, is there to help them along the way.
This game provides examples of:
- A Lizard Named "Liz": The main villain, Ratso the rat.
- Alphabet Soup Cans
- Bond Villain Stupidity: At the beginning of the game, Ratso easily traps five people in a mirror. Throughout the rest of the game, he never attempts to do this to CJ and Edison, which would be the most effective way of stopping them.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": All of the royal subjects are referred to only by their titles.
- Evil Laugh: Ratso does one of these when he takes over the castle.
- Fetch Quest: In order to free the prisoners, CJ has to collect various ingredients for potions.
- Gratuitous French: The Cook uses this.
- Large Ham: Ratso can be this.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Ratso's voice actor is doing a Paul Lynde impression.
- Perpetual Smiler: The Jester.
- Plucky Girl: The Princess.
- Species Surname: CJ Frog and Edison Firefly.
- Surfer Dude: The Squire.
- Theme Naming / Letter Motif: The villain and his henchmen all have names ending in 'o': Ratso, Chunko, Melmo, Buzzo, and Zombo.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: The King and the Queen.
- Universal-Adaptor Cast: So why are C.J. and Edison, who normally reside in the Present Day, suddenly living in The Middle Ages? No reason, just this trope.
- You Dirty Rat!: Ratso and his henchmen.
- Zero-Effort Boss: Releasing the royal family doesn't end your quest - you have to defeat Ratso in a game very similar to The Hollywood Squares. Only that Ratso is programmed to never succeed in getting the final square for the win.
