  • August. After several weeks building up rumors around the good, strong young Marquis of Carabas, Puss springs the final plan to get Gian into a Lombard king's good graces and marry his daughter. He has Gian strip naked and go for a swim, and then he presents Gian as the victim of a practical joke as his clothes were stolen, needing their replacement by truly royal garb from the king, who had been alerted to the "Marquis's" predicament. Puss has the king, princess, and Gian travel to a castle he claims is Gian's. Puss goes ahead, and finds the chosen castle's ruler, a shape-shifting ogre.
