King Arthur desperately needs a haircut, and with the royal barber away, he foolishly accepts Sir Gadabout's offer to do the job. The result is a disaster, of course, so he turns to Merlin for help. Merlin's quick solution is a "turn back time" spell, so that Arthur can return to the hour just before Sir Gads wreaked havoc on his hair. However, Sir Gads intervenes once more, and King Arthur finds himself unexpectedly in the present day instead. Trapped in the future, Sir Gads must find a way to help Arthur and himself return to medieval times. Knowing Sir Gadabout, it's not going to be easy.
