"Minimus is Missing" is the fifty-fourth episode of the Disney Junior animated series, Sofia the First. It premiered on August 12, 2015, and is the second episode of the third season.


At the castle, Sofia and James are teaching Amber how to ride her new flying horse, Saffron, but she's having even more trouble that Sofia ever did. Amber seizes a lunch break as an opportunity to avoid trying again while Saffron takes an instant liking to Minimus. After they get back from lunch, they find all the flying horses gone. They report it to Constable Miles who leads all the knights out to find them. After a stray comment from Amber, Sofia heads to the Jewel Room and asks the griffins to fly them to Royal Prep. Sofia meets up with Jasper, who is much bigger and is delighted to see her again, and tells him and his parents, Opal and Onyx, what's going on and the three griffins agree to help.

They set out for Royal Prep with Sofia riding Jasper, James riding Onyx, and Amber riding Opal though Amber's having a bumpy ride. Upon arriving at Royal Prep, Sir Gillium informs them that Royal Prep's flying horses are also gone. Suddenly, they see a herd of flying horses and takes off after them. Upon catching up, Sofia hears them chanting "Wendell is wonderful." Sofia realizes that the music they're hearing is magical and has put the flying horses in a trance. They attempt to follow but lose them because of Amber's poor flying, which causes a fight between Amber and James. Sofia breaks up the fight and tells Amber she can go back if she wants to. Amber states they should all go back but Sofia refuses stating that she loves Minimus and won't stop until he's okay. Seeing how much this means to her little sister, Amber agrees to stay. After spotting another herd of flying horses, they follow them to Tangu.

They arrive at the Hanging Gardens and spot a young wizard boy whom they identify as Wendell. Jasper, who wants to help Sofia so badly, races off into the Gardens in a way that gets them both stuck. Amber refuses to go into the Gardens because of what happened the last time she went in them so James goes after Sofia. After he reunites with her and they find the horses, they try to set them free but Wendell foils the attempt with his magic lute. Wendell shows his true colors as a typical spoiled little brat and that he took the flying horses because his mother gave him what he considered a poor gift for his birthday. Suddenly, Amber, who was worried about Sofia and James, flies in and pelts Wendell with figs. Sofia and Jasper fly up, snatch his lute, and break the lute's neck. An angered Wendell is about to hex the Royal Kids for foiling him, when suddenly his mother shows up after looking for him everywhere implying that Wendell had run away from home. When Mrs. Fidget discovers what Wendell has been doing, she makes him apologize and punishes him for his actions. After they leave, Sofia and her big siblings free the flying horses and fly them home with Jasper's parents noting there will be no getting him back in the Jewel Room after this.
