The town of Titipu hasn't had an execution for a while and the Lord High Executioner (KoKo) is informed his head may soon be on the chopping block if the situation isn't remedied. Along comes a wandering minstrel (Nanki Poo) who happens to be in love with KoKo's ward (YumYum), who also happens to be engaged to KoKo. Oh, and did I mention, Nanki Poo is engaged to someone else (Katisha) and he's the incognito son of the Mikado? Heads may roll... Or perhaps something with boiling oil...
