One of the world’s most famous nappers is Aurora, the young princess in “Sleeping Beauty.” At the girl’s birth, the jealous fairy Maleficent put a curse on her to die on her 16th birthday. To thwart that dire plan, Aurora’s protective aunts (the fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather) hide her in the forest, where she has a happy life. But shortly before the girl’s Sweet 16, Maleficent discovers where she is, leading Merryweather to put Aurora in a deep sleep to be broken only by a kiss from Prince Phillip, her one true love.
