Plot

The Sword in the Stone follows the future King Arthur’s life during his adolescence and education by the wizard Merlin. The film starts with the introduction of the sword in an anvil. "When England was young, and knights were brave and bold, the good king had died and no one could decide who was rightful heir to the throne." To prevent a power struggle, "a miracle appeared in London Town, the Sword in the Stone." Engraved below the hilt the insription in gold letters read, "Whoso Pulleth Out This Sword of this Stone and Anvil, is Rightwise King Born of England." For other uses, see King Arthur (disambiguation). ... The Enchanted Garden of Messer Ansaldo by Marie Spartali Stillman: a magician makes his garden bear fruit and flowers in winter A magician, or wizard or sorcerer or several other possible names (see Names and terminology), is someone who uses or practices magic. ... Swiss longsword, 15th or 16th century Look up Sword in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... For other uses, see Anvil (disambiguation). ...


Unfortunately, nobody could pull the sword out of the stone, and the miracle had not worked. It was soon forgotten, and England was left without a King. With no law and order, this was a Dark Age in which men lived in fear of each other. For other uses, see Anarchy (disambiguation). ...


Some years later, Merlin, a wizard, makes a prediction to his familiar owl, Archimedes, that a person of some significance would drop in on him later that day. He knows only that it will be a small boy, but is able to predict the exact spot where the visitor will fall through his roof, and positions a chair accordingly. We then see Arthur, called "Wart" by his family, a 12-year-old orphan who lives with Sir Ector, his foster father, and Kay, his older foster brother. Wart distracts Kay while shooting deer and runs in to the forest to fetch Kay's arrow. A hungry wolf takes an interest in the boy, but never manages to get close enough for a bite. As Wart searches, he falls through Merlin's roof, directly on to the chair. For other uses, see Owl (disambiguation). ... Sir Ector (sometimes Hector, Antor, or Ectorius) is the father of Sir Kay and the foster father of King Arthur in the Arthurian legend. ... Sir Kay, son of Sir Ector, was one of the Knights of the Round Table and King Arthurs foster brother. ...


Merlin sees great potential in the boy and commits himself to Arthur's education, which is to consist of reading, science, and magical transformations. Sir Ector, on the other hand, plans to teach Wart about fighting and chivalry to prepare him to be Kay's squire. Merlin packs up his entire cottage by shrinking the contents to fit inside his tiny carpet bag ("Higitus Figitus") and accompanies Wart back to Sir Ector's castle. Ector is interrogating Kay, claiming that he is responsible if Arthur gets hurt. He is interrupted by the castle dogs running to Arthur and eagerly licking his face. Ector is not pleased about Arthur running off into the forest and sends him away. Merlin proposes that Ector permit him to educate Arthur. Sir Ector is not keen for Merlin to teach the Wart, but an indoor blizzard soon convinces him to allow the boy to have lessons. However, Sir Ector does put Merlin in the "best room in the house" a rickety, half demolished tower, which offers no protection from the pouring rain.


For his first transformation lesson, Merlin turns Wart into a perch. In fish form, Wart is chased and attacked by a huge pike. He works to outsmart the beast but is nearly caught. Archimedes flies down and plucks Wart from the pike’s jaws, saving him, but the owl later denies any altruism, claiming instead, "I intended to eat him! Young perch is my favorite dish! You know that!" Species P. flavescens (Yellow perch) P. fluviatilis (European perch) P. schrenkii (Balkhash perch) For other meanings of the word perch, including fish not in the Perca genus, see Perch (disambiguation). ...

Merlin arrives for his next lesson, only to find that Wart is confined to the kitchen, as punishment for telling Sir Ector the truth about his fishy lesson. Merlin sets the dishes to wash themselves and he and Wart head for the woods. For his second lesson, Merlin transforms Wart to a squirrel. Though Wart begins by learning about the principle of gravity, he ends up learning about the birds and the bees and male-female relationships when he runs into a female squirrel who becomes infatuated with him. Merlin is amused until another female squirrel finds him attractive as well, and the student and teacher are forced to fend off the amorous attentions of both females. After a wolf (who has been following the boy throughout the film) nearly eats Wart (but is saved by the female squirrel that likes him), Merlin transforms both of them back into humans. While Merlin’s squirrel companion is merely horrified and then angry at the wizard, Wart’s companion is visibly heartbroken. He then learns that romantic love is stronger than gravity. This article is about the animal. ...


Meanwhile, the cook and Sir Ector have discovered the dishes washing themselves and fear black magic. Ector and Kay try to stop the spell, but instead are pummelled by scrubbing brushes as they continue to work. Merlin and Wart arrive and Merlin stops his spell, but Ector accuses him black magic and corrupting Wart. Wart rushes to Merlin's defence, but Ector will not listen and announces that a boy called Hobbes is going to be Kay's squire, rather than Wart.


For his last lesson, Merlin transforms Wart into a bird. Merlin doesn’t join him; instead, Archimedes teaches Wart the principles of flight. Wart’s skill and enjoyment rapidly become apparent to Archimedes, but his daring forces him to flee from the pursuit of a hawk. During his escape, Wart is taken hostage by "The Marvelous Mad Madam Mim," a witch in competition with Merlin. She claims that her magic, which is based on selfishness and trickery, is more useful than Merlin's magic, which is "for educational purposes." Wart resists Madam Mim's attempts to seduce him away from Merlin's 'good magic' and Madam Mim decides that she will have to kill him. As Wart is still in the form of a little sparrow, Mim turns herself in to a fat pink cat and chases him around her cottage. For other uses, see Bird (disambiguation). ... Madam Mim, or Mad Madam Mim as she is sometimes referred to, is a fictional witch, best known from the Disney movie based on The Sword in the Stone by T. H. White, where she was voiced by Martha Wentworth. ... Selfishness denotes the precedence given in thought or deed to self interests and self concerns, the act of placing ones own needs or desires above the needs or desires of others. ... Trickery is modernly defined as the practice of crafty underhanded ingenuity to deceive or cheat to play a trick on someone is the art of trickery. ... Binomial name Felis catus Linnaeus, 1758 Synonyms Felis lybica invalid junior synonym The cat (or domestic cat, house cat) is a small carnivorous mammal. ...


Just as Wart is captured, Merlin arrives and challenges Madam Mim to a wizard's duel. This is where the combatants try to defeat each other with magical skill. They agree on the rules, which include 'no vegetable or mineral; only animal', 'no make-believe things like pink dragons and stuff', 'no disappearaing', and 'no cheating', but Mim immediately breaks the rules by disappearing. Merlin and Mim take turns in transforming in to different animals and trying to get the better of each other. Mim turns herself in to a large dragon, which she justifies by saying that they didn't make a rule against purple dragons. However, Merlin transforms himself into a germ and infects her. She is defeated, bedridden and furious. Wart walks away with the lesson that knowledge is the greatest power. For other uses, see Dragon (disambiguation). ...


By coincidence, Hobbes has come down with the mumps and cannot come to London, so Wart is reinstated as Kay's squire. He runs to tell Merlin, who is disappointed that Wart still prefers war games to academics. Wart tries to explain that, as an orphan, he cannot become a knight and that a squire is the best position he can attain. Merlin, however, becomes angry with his pupil and, in his temper, transports himself to 20th-century Bermuda (unwittingly, through his exclamation of "Blow me to Bermuda!").


Sir Ector, Kay, and Wart (and Archimedes as a stowaway) travel to London for a New Year's tournament which will decide who will be the next King of England. As Kay’s turn to fight approaches, Wart realizes that he has forgotten Kay's sword at their inn. He tries to retrieve it, but the door is locked, and he frantically searches the town for another sword for Kay. He sees a sword protruding from an anvil on a stone in a churchyard. He touches the sword and a light streams from heaven, prompting Archimedes to tell the boy to leave it alone. But Wart, afraid of what will happen if he returns to the tournament without a sword, pulls the sword from the stone, unwittingly fulfilling the sword’s prophecy and making himself king.

This is a list of British monarchs, that is, the monarchs on the thrones of some of the various kingdoms that have existed on, or incorporated, the island of Great Britain, namely: England (united with Wales from 1536) up to 1707; Scotland up to 1707; The Kingdom of Great Britain... Swiss longsword, 15th or 16th century Look up Sword in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Wart returns with the sword and hands it to Kay, but before he can enter the arena, someone recognises "the Marvellous Sword" and the tournament is halted. Unable to believe that a child could succeed when adults had failed, the crowd demands that Wart prove that he took the sword. The assembled audience follow Sir Ector and Wart to the churchyard and Ector replaces the sword in its anvil. Wart reaches for the Sword but is stopped by Kay, who reasons that "anyone can pull it, once its been pulled". However, once re-inserted the sword is as immovable as ever, he is unable to budge the sword, and the other knights call for Wart to try. As Arthur pulls the sword from the stone for the second time, a voice proclaims from Heaven that he is the rightful King.


Trapped in his throne room, surrounded on all sides by cheering crowds, Arthur, feeling unprepared and apprehensive calls to Merlin for help. After the wizard appears (in Bermuda shorts) and the facts become apparent, Merlin is elated to find that Wart will be the King Arthur that he has seen in the future. Merlin tells Arthur that he will rise and lead the Knights of the Round Table. When Arthur questions the Round Table, asking for an explanation, Merlin wonders whether he would prefer a square one. Arthur assures him that "round will be fine" and Merlin continues to talk about the future, revealing other anachronistic information. Look up Anachronism in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Songs

  • "The Sword in the Stone"

  • "A Most Befuddling Thing"
  • "Blue Oak Tree"
  • "Mad Madame Mim"

Animation

  • Disney animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston said that Milt Kahl's animations of Sir Kay and Sir Ector were "the best human figures ever done at the studio."[citation needed]
  • The climactic battle between Merlin and Mad Madam Mim is often cited by animation experts as some of the best character animation to that date. The characters go through numerous physical transformations during battle, yet retain their identifying features; Merlin's guises are blue and include his glasses and facial hair, while Mim's are pink and purple and have her messy hair.[citation needed]
  • Mim's pink and purple stripes are exactly like the Disney version of Cheshire Cat.
  • Some of the animation cells of Arthur walking through the dark forest to find Kay's arrow were later reused in a similar scene in The Black Cauldron in which Taran looks for Hen-Wen.
  • When Sir Ector and Kay are in the kitchen fighting against the enchanted dishware, Sir Ector yells and swings his sword so hard that it hits Kay on the head; Jasper and Horace in One Hundred and One Dalmatians are animated in the same way during the fight scene with Pongo and Perdita. Additionally, the scene where Arthur is being licked by the castle dogs is mirrored by that of Mowgli being licked by his wolf friends in The Jungle Book four years later.
  • The scene where Arthur is a squirrel jumping from one tree to the next was reused in The Fox and the Hound in 1981, where Todd is left behind in the forest searching for available shelter.

Trivia

  • The R2 DVD release has a scene trimmed by the BBFC involving Mad Madame Mim's first encounter with Wart. In the current version she says, "Sounds like someone's sick, how lovely!" In the uncut version she continues, "I do hope it's serious, something dreadful!"
  • This was the first animated feature to have songs written by the Sherman Brothers (music was written by Disney composer George Bruns).
  • The Sword in the Stone is the only production in which Robert and Richard Reitherman appear. They were the sons of director Wolfgang Reitherman and brothers of Bruce Reitherman, the voice of Mowgli and Christopher Robin.
  • Merlin appeared in the Square-Enix and Disney game Kingdom Hearts as a resident of Traverse Town, and later in Kingdom Hearts II, a resident of Hollow Bastion. His house in Kingdom Hearts II was used as a base where the security system of Hollow Bastion could be controlled.
  • Arthur was voiced by three different boys - Rickie Sorensen, Richard Reitherman and Robert Reitherman. The changes in voice are very noticeable in the film because of the way Arthur's voice keeps going from broken to unbroken, sometimes in the same scene. One of the easiest noticed is in the last scene in the thone room when Arthur asks in his "changed voice", "Oh, Archimedes, I wish Merlin was here!" Then, the camera cuts farther back and Arthur shouts in his "unchanged voice," "Merlin! Merlin!"
  • The rare germ that Merlin turns into to infect Madam Mim is called Malagolintomontorosis (sp).
  • Merlin was featured as one of the guests in House of Mouse.
  • In the 1993 point and click adventure game Simon the Sorceror, the battle between Merlin and Madam Mim is parodied when Simon does battle with a wicked witch, imitating the dragon transformation sequence.
  • This is Martha Wentworth final film before she died in 1974.
  • Merlin and Arthur, as they appear in the film, are parodied in Shrek the Third.
  • The film was able to become a success at the box office and was the fifth highest grossing film of 1963[1].
