Synopsis: "King Roland wishes he could live the life of a baker when he thinks that being a king is too stressful. A magic mirror grants his wish, and the royal family becomes bakers in the village."

Many shows do their take on the "It's A Wonderful Life" trope, and run with it. This is one of those times. This episode manages to give great character development to King Roland. While working as a baker, he realizes it isn't easy. Through Sofia, he learns that while being a king isn't easy, it's worth it to see your hard work pay off, and especially with a great family by your side. There's also a catchy musical number and many funny moments. To wrap it up, we have a good story with great character development, good humor, a good song, and a good lesson. This is definitely a good episode.

It's a good episode, but The spell didn't really have much logic to it. It changed things so Roland and the gang are bakers, and everyone knows him as the baker and doesn't reconzie him as king. Yet the changes he made as king, like the playground thing and the 100 layer cake still remain and people see that the king is missing. I guess it just replace whoever the baker was before with them and erased people's memorizes of roland being kind and stuff. Eh, it would have been better if it changed it so someone else became king instead and they would have to deal with that too.l But as it is, it's fine.

I probably should've mentioned that. It's like with "Ghostly Gala", which also has these same writers. I think it's pretty good, though the holiday in that episode is Halloween even though "Princess Butterfly" called it All Hallow's Eve.

Eh, that's a logic problem i can look past. Maybe they just call it different names when they feel like it.

Well, logic does sometimes have to take a backseat in order to move a story along.

this episode was a tad freaky

I'm not really sure how, but okay.

well picture this, one day you find something that you don't know that its magical, you make a wish to be someone else, then the next morning you find yourself somewhere different

Oh, I see. I guess I see where you're coming from. But, everything else that was good about the episode didn't make me think of it that much.
