Cartoon Synopsis:

King Stefan and King Hubert celebrate the birth of Stefan's infant daughter, Aurora and the betrothal of Hubert's son Phillip to her. The three good fairies, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, are in the midst of bestowing gifts on the princess, when Maleficent, the evil fairy, interrupts.

Furious at having been excluded from the ceremonies, Maleficent curses the child to die on her sixteenth birthday, by the prick of her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel.

Though Merryweather is able to soften the curse, bestowing an enchanted sleep instead of death, Stefan orders the kingdom's spinning wheels burned and sends his daughter into hiding with the three good fairies.

By chance, on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Aurora meets Phillip in the woods, and the two fall in love. At the same time, Maleficent discovers Aurora's whereabouts, captures Prince Phillip, and entices Aurora to a remote castle tower, where she pricks her finger and falls into the magic sleep. Phillip defeats and destroys Maleficent and wakes the princess Aurora with true love's kiss.
