Well Excuse Me, Princess is a phrase used on the internet usually after being complained or disagreed with.


In 1989, a thirteen-episode series of cartoons based from Legend Of Zelda were produced as the weekend cartoons shown during the The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! The Legend of Zelda Cartoon aired every Friday from September 8, 1989 to December 1, 1989.

In the cartoon, Link’s catch-phrase, used in every single episode, was “Well excuuuuuuuse me, Princess!”. He usually said this in response to Princess Zelda’s nagging / complaining.
