The best "PETER AND THE WOLF" ever
25 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to read the other review, because I recently bought the re-released DVD reissue of this "Peter and The Wolf" for my 6 year-old grandson, and not only did he love it, but so did I!! I am a professional violinist and music educator, and know this score inside and out. The reviewer who said the producers had changed Prokofiev's music is dead wrong -- it is note for note perfect, and in addition, is beautifully played. It was actually Disney's version that was cut!! The characters in Chuck Jones version, designed by Mr. Jones, are delightful -- and not just a recycling of his Warner Bros., ensemble. The animated tale, which is the centerpiece of this production, and where Prokofiev's score plays out in entirety, is magical. And Kirstie Alley's narration is full of life and spirit -- really fantastic. I also loved Lloyd Bridges as the grandfather, and young Ross Malinger as both the live action and animated Peter. The live action parts were magical, and gave some real-life relevance to the animated story, and the ending was enchanting. It brought a tear to my eye. Ross Malinger was endearing in "Sleepless In Seattle," and he goes to the next step here. And his rapport with Lloyd Bridges seemed so very real. A fantastic bonus to this production is an extraordinary "Guide To The Symphony Orchestra" bonus feature at the end, which thoroughly explains to the young viewer how Prokofiev used the musical instruments to portray the various characters. And the producers wisely use YOUNG teenage musicians to demonstrate the instruments, which really makes it come to life for young viewers. I Googled for more information on this production -- I can't figure out why it isn't more frequently seen. I noticed it won the Emmy for Best Children's Program, as well as many other Emmy nominations and awards. I also saw that the critics gave it great reviews -- one from the Philadelphia daily newspaper called it "The best children's television special ever." So it is a mystery to me why this production is not a television classic. But in the meantime, do yourself a favor -- and for your children and grandchildren -- and watch it!
