“Sleeping Beauty” tells the story of Princess Aurora (Mary Costa) and the evil curse placed on her by vengeful fairy Maleficent (Eleanor Audley).

Three doting fairies – Flora (Verna Felton), Fauna (Barbara Jo Allen) and Merryweather (Barbara Luddy) – whisk Aurora away to raise her deep in the forest where Maleficent cannot find her. One day while riding in the woods, Prince Phillip (Bill Shirley) meets Aurora, now known as Briar Rose, and the two fall in love. But when Rose learns from the fairies that she is a princess and must return to the castle immediately to fulfill her royal duties, she is devastated at the thought of leaving Philip. Once back at the castle, Maleficent fulfills her curse, putting Princess Aurora in a deep sleep. The prince rushes to the castle to rescue Aurora but first must battle Maleficent, who assumes the form of a fierce, fire-spouting dragon. “Sleeping Beauty” repeats on Sunday, July 19th at 1:30PM ET/PT.
