A rags-to-riches fairytale of Cinderella, a beautiful young girl who is forced to become a servant to her stepmother and stepsisters after the death of her father.

She remains upbeat despite spending her days waiting on Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drizella, helped along by her little mice friends. When an invitation to a ball at the Castle arrives, the mice set about making a dress for Cinderella to wear, and although she finishes her chores in time for the ball, her dreams are wrecked when her stepsisters tear the dress to shreds.

Just as she begins to lose hope, her Fairy Godmother appears and magics a pumpkin into a magnificent glass coach, complete with footmen and a beautiful dress to wear.

Cinderella attends the ball, where she and Prince Charming fall in love, but she has to flee at midnight before her coach turns back into a pumpkin. But she leaves behind one of her glass slippers which the Prince and Grand Duke then use to find her. Despite the efforts of her Stepmother and Stepsisters to lock her away out of sight, and with the help of her animal friends, Cinderella breaks free just in time to try the slipper on and prove it was her at the ball.

74 minutes long.
