Berkeley Beetle wants Thumbelina to sing at his ball and she agrees, but she’s treated badly there once her costume falls off and they realize she is a girl and not a butterfly. Meanwhile, Cornelius the fairy prince is trying to rescue Thumbelina, but is thwarted by weather and dangerous jitterbugs. Eventually he and Thumbelina are reunited and she becomes a fairy princess.
