The “sword”-fish gag is an oldie but a goodie. How many of you have ever been smacked by a fish? I bet it’s pretty discomfiting. I wonder if Stan was inspired to acquire this piece when his daughters started dating? Here we have King Hubert brandishing a fish at King Stephan, in the classic “my dad can beat up your dad” challenge. Though to be honest, it’s probably not a good sign when your father goes after your boyfriend’s father with a fish. But hey, it’s that special brand of Disney magic that makes it all work out in the end!
