Emperor Klonkenlocker of Blibbentucker is the best-dressed man in the land, and has offered one million grinklens to the winning tailor for the Emperor's new clothes. Marmaduke and his loyal partner Musty decide that becoming tailors will enhance their chances to win the competition. First premiering on ABC as a network special in February 1972, "The Enchanted World of Danny Kaye" stars Danny as the character Marmaduke telling the classic story of a magical musical adaptation on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes". Filmed in live action from a small town in Denmark, Danny sings and tells the story surrounded by children. This one-of-a-kind Rankin & Bass production features live action, cell animation, and "Animagic," the studio's trademark stop-motion animation technique made famous with "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and many other classics.
