Ferdo and Floof are two not-very-bright dogs—well … at least not to your average fifth grader. The dogs strongly desire to break the rules of their owner, Roger, and constantly getting into trouble in the process. Ferdo and Floof decide to run away and seek fame and fortune on their own. Despite the warnings of a wise old owl, they enter the enchanted forest. There they encounter a cursed prince who has been turned to stone by Queen Malevella; a hapless poodle, Mimi, who is a minion of the queen; the legendary Dog Shouter; and finally the terribly wicked queen herself. Ferdo and Floof must rally their brainpower to release the prince and escape from the queen's dungeon.
