Classic! This episode is in my top 10 favorites! It stays true to the original short story "Too Dear!" by Leo Tolstoy, but this adaptation is much better than the story.

In this farce, the King of a tiny kingdom doesn't want to spend the money to purchase a guillotine to execute a prisoner. He explores several other means of execution and punishment, but can't find one that he deems cost effective.

Not what you'd expect but enjoyable nevertheless.

HA! Government in action. Too funny - good one.
