Synopsis:
The flaming bird brings Prince Taurus to Mad Zandra, who begins teaching the young Prince dark magic. King Conan searches for Taurus with the help of the priest, Dexitheus, and his Black Dragons. As they grow closer to Taurus, Zandra changes Taurus into a black goat to disguise him from his father. King Conan is able to thwart Zandra and burns her cottage down with the black goat inside. Taurus uses Zandra's grimoire to turn back to human shape but gets interrupted by his father, so his incomplete transformation leaves him with a goat hoof instead of a foot. King Conan takes Taurus back home, but Zandra tries to use her amulet to get the boy back. However, not realizing King Conan has two sons, she ends up getting Prince Conn instead.
