Plot Edit

Cedric and Sophia overhear that royalty is coming to the Evergreen Forest, sending Bert on a quest to become a knight, and leading Cyril to believe that his family title (taken away after his great-great uncle Excalibur Sneer tried to steal the crown jewels) is about to be restored. Unfortunately for both of them, things are not quite what they seem.




  • First time we see the Sneer Library, which is inside the Mansion. It has as follows - the complete works of William Shakesneer, the Sneer Dynasty, the Sneer Coat of Arms, Emily Aardvark's etiquette book, and the sword Excalibur Sneer was knighted with. We learn that there is blue blood in the Sneer Family.
  • We learn that Sophia has a problem with keeping secrets.
  • During the scene where Ralph and Melissa meet Bert, Cedric and Sophia, an instrumental version of Got Me Singing is heard playing. The sung version would not be heard until the penultimate episode of the following season.
  • Excalibur Sneer's name is a play on the legendary sword wielded by King Arthur.
  • First appearance of the Forest Bowl, which is used for various events.
  • Stock footage from Surprise Attack is used in this episode.
  • Snag buries his bones everywhere around the yard outside the mansion.
  • In Time Trap Cyril goes back in time to the moment he was pushed onto the stage and unlike in this episode,he makes a better speech and is Knighted but that turns out to be all a dream.

Goofs Edit

  • Cedric tells Sophia that Excalibur Sneer was Cyril's great-great-great uncle. Cyril, a few minutes later, states that Excalibur was his "great-great" uncle.
