Samson is first introduced with Phillip, 16 years after Maleficent's curse and Aurora's life as Briar Rose first began. He and Phillip are out riding when Phillip is suddenly intrigued by the beautiful singing voice of a peasant girl and is determined to investigate. Samson is initially against this course change, but Phillip convinces him to go along when he promises Samson an extra bag of oats and a few carrots) to eat. However, after failing to woo her, an embarrassed Phillip denies Samson those extra carrots.
Later on, after heading back from Stefan’s kingdom to the forest to meet with the peasant girl again, Phillip and Samson are kidnapped by Maleficent and her goons and are hauled off to her castle at the Forbidden Mountain. There, the Three Good Fairies arrive to the rescue, freeing the duo. The team races out of the castle and towards the kingdom of King Stefan, where Aurora has fallen into a deep, sleep-like death, with a kiss of true love being the only thing capable of awakening her. However, as they race to the rescue, Maleficent unleashes her wrath by turning herself into a dragon and knocked Phillip off Samson's saddle with her fire breathing power. The two battle and the battle ends when the evil fairy is stabbed by Phillip’s Sword of Truth. After Maleficent is destroyed, Samson, Phillip, and the fairies head towards the castle and with True Love’s Kiss, the princess is finally awakened, along with the others in the kingdom, including Stefan, Queen Leah, and King Hubert.
Samson appears in Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams in the Keys to the Kingdoms segment. He is first seen when Phillip and Aurora are walking and talking all about Aurora taking over while he leaves, which Samson interrupts them.
He is seen again when Phillip is heading to and returning from the Royal Conference. Phillip is seen riding him, instead of riding the carriage with Hubert, King Stefan, and Queen Leah. Samson is seen arriving back to the palace with Phillip, along with the two kings and Leah, when Lord Duke comes running to the carriage and warn them about the giant chickens, green pigs, and cows he saw in the throne room. After they enter the palace, Samson is not seen again.
