Trivia

Originally, the Hellenic Storyteller was to have a new dog in the shape of Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog. But when this creature proved to be too difficult to produce on a Television schedule, the dog from the original The Storyteller (1987) was dusted off and rebuilt in a new, high-tech incarnation.

Wondrous perspective of Greek Folklore!!!
8 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

That Jim Henson! He sure did know how to capture the charisma of mythology and folklore. This is no exception.

This time, instead of a typical Storyteller in a beautiful cabin, it's a Greek Storyteller taking refuge in a Labyrinth on Rhodes island. I like all the stories here,too.Nada bad one at all!!!

Like the 1st "Storyteller",this is very dark and sometimes pretty frightening for wee ones. No cutesy low-rent puppets singing and dancing with starry lil' eyes. No bubblegum nor sugar-coating. The muppets,like in the 1st half of this mini-series is pretty realistic and fantastic like usual.

Watch this when this comes on sometime!
