"Cedric Be Good" is the fifty-fifth episode of the Disney Junior animated series, Sofia the First. It premiered on September 18, 2015, and is the third episode of the third season.


Sofia and James are picking apples in the Royal Orchard to give to the villagers. When Cedric flies in on a flying machine, the pair ask him to let them ride it but he refuses. Cedric heads to his workshop with a flower from the Charmacy called the Alabaster Rose, a rare flower that blooms every one hundred years, to make a power plucking potion which he plans to use to make Sofia's amulet give him any power he wants after he steals it by switching it with a fake he made. Back in the orchard, Wormwood distracts Sofia and Cedric casts a switching spell to switch the unaware Sofia's real amulet with the fake one. Suddenly while he is working on the potion, the amulet curses him with sticky hands. He tells his mother and he tries to get his hands out of the flask. The potion falls on the floor and gets destroyed. Winifred tells that Cedric has been cursed by the amulet because he stole it from Sofia. To break it, he needs to do a good deed. Winifred becomes his chaperone on the way out. Cedric hides the real amulet and gives Sofia his flying machine and the curse is broken. Cedric gives James another ride and asks to come with Sofia to the village after Winifred advises him to unlock the amulet's powers the same way Sofia does. Meanwhile, Wormwood distracts Sofia's animal friends by being "friendly" so they don't reveal to Sofia that she's not really wearing her Amulet.

In the village, Cedric finally starts gaining the amulet's powers but he keeps getting them taken away by the amulet and getting cursed by it by doing bad deeds. He wants more powers so Winifred tells him to stop doing bad deeds and follow Sofia's lead. He asks Sofia to help him be a better person and she does. After helping a man finish building a house, Cedric finally gains the power he's longed for: Supreme strength. Afterwards, he and Sofia head back to the castle. Upon arriving back, Sofia discovers she can't use her powers and heads to Cedric. Meanwhile, Cedric's supreme strength gets taken away and he gets cursed with metal hands for destroying the king's throne. Back in his workshop, Winifred tells him to do the most noble kindhearted thing he can think of and, having had enough, Cedric returns the amulet to Sofia, restoring her powers, and breaking his curse. Sofia goes for a ride with James in Cedric's flying machine while Winifred tells Cedric that Sofia getting her amulet back is for the best. From that moment on, Cedric will no longer try to take over Enchancia with it.

  • It's revealed in this episode that people who are fully-trained in the magical arts like Cedric can unlock the amulet's powers and break its curses more easily than those who are not fully-trained like Sofia.
