Mickey dreams of being a knight, but when he is chosen to be Sir Mortimer's squire, he discovers his new boss's heroic reputation is a fairytale.
The episode takes place in medieval times, in a not so peacefully land and kingdom. There, the humble peasant Mickey dreams of becoming a legendary knight.
The local hero is Mortimer Mouse, who is supposedly a great knight, whose will is to protect the kingdom from menaces of every kind.
One day, Mortimer appears at a square in the town and proclaims that he’s looking for a new squire, since his previous one (most likely to be Donald) has been incinerated by a dragon. Mickey offers himself gladly to take the job and Mortimer accepts, thinking that Mickey is a fool.
Then, the duo goes patrolling the region and they suddenly get face to face with a monstrous gigantic troll who’s destroying everything and terrorizing people. Mickey fights the creature and defeats it, while Mortimer stays hidden. At the end, the despicable knight gets all the credit for Mickey's deeds.
Some time after, the kingdom is taken by a wave of criminality and robberies. Again, Mickey does all the work while Mortimer hides. At the ending, Mortimer gets all the credit again.
The next day, a mighty and furious dragon attacks the princess’ castle while she and Mortimer are having tea together. Fearful, the swindler runs away while Mickey stops the monster. Mickey is praised by the townspeople and Minnie kisses him for heroism. Mortimer is finally unmasked by Mickey when the townsfolk overheard him as the fraud and coward he truly is when he accidentally confesses. He is stripped of his knighthood with everything he collected, including his heroism, then punished by the townspeople for his lies and Mickey becomes the new (and true) local hero of the land and guardian of his village, fulfilling his dream.
