Once upon a time, there was a kingdom of fairy tales called "Märchenland", where many fairy tale characters live together in joy. Suddenly, the evil emperor Pierrot made an invasion on Märchenland, sealing its Queen in the process. To revive the Queen, the symbol of happiness called Cure Decor, "the Queen's scattered power of light of happiness", is required. To collect the Cure Decor, a fairy named Candy searches for the Pretty Cures on Earth. There, Candy meets a girl, who decides to collect the Cure Decor. Now, will the world earn a "happy ending"?

Sugar, spice, and everything nice; these are words commonly associated with Toei’s Pretty Cure franchise. Though understandable, this franchise has garnered criticism for its stagnant plot formulas, characters, and juvenile themes. Unfolding in an identical manner to many traditional magical girl tales, Smile Precure perhaps gives the initial impression that it is just another fish lost in the sea of mass consumerism.
