The Princess and the Pea is a Danish fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, first published in 1835.


  • A unique book adaptation called "Prince Elmo and the Pea" features Ernie and Bert as two bored royal pals who have nobody to play with. During a storm, Elmo (as a prince) visits the castle for shelter, and the duo test if he's good at playing hide-and-seek by hiding the pea under the mattresses.


  • Margaret Cho voiced Queen Uhmuhni in the version of the story from Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child (1995)
  • Liza Minnelli played Princess Alecia in the Faerie Tale Theatre version (1984)
