The Thief and the Cobbler, also released (in heavily altered versions) as The Princess and the Cobbler and Arabian Knight, is an animated fantasy film directed by Richard Williams.


In an Arabian Nights-inspired setting, a young, silent cobbler called Tack falls in love with the beautiful princess Yum Yum, on whom treacherous grand vizier and sorcerer Zigzag also has views. Meanwhile, a ridiculously stubborn (and equally silent) Thief keeps trying to steal the mystical Three Golden Balls, unaware that a prophecy claims that if the golden balls are ever taken away, the city will be conquered by the barbaric One-Eyes.
