|Jerry Nelson Four Dragons|
In the story, an aged emperor in ancient Japan offers the throne to his son if he can find four dragons hidden in the room before midnight. An Evil Prime Minister thinks that the son will never find the dragons in time. The son finds the dragons in a painting, and inherits the empire.
The emperor re-appeared in another Japanese tale, "The Emperor's New Gong."
