Storyline

Follows the adventures of eleven-year-old Zach Nichols and ten-year-old Annie Redfeather as they suffer pain from issues involving other children. To solve these problems, they seek council from a group of anthropomorphic animals whose names come from the Greek - Plato, an old and scholarly bison; Aurora, a wise red-tailed hawk; Socrates, a rambunctious and wisecracking bobcat; and Aristotle, a feisty and bookish prairie dog. This ensemble teaches the kids virtues by telling them stories from the Book of Virtues. Written by Nate S.

Trivia

In his "Adventures From the Book of Virtues", William J. Bennett included several pieces written by or concerning Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, as they were among his favorite philosophers. Three of the animal characters are named for them. (The leader Plato's being a buffalo is also a reference to Bennett's nickname Buffalo Bill.) The fourth and the only female who proves one of the two most sagacious, Aurora is the only exception. In keeping with the Greek origins of the others' names, she was named after the Greek deity of dawn. See more »

Pretty good, actually. . .
18 March 2003 | by (Woodbridge, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I saw this show when I was about 10. The basic plot was of a pair of kids who would go away to this wonderland where animals talked and each episode would be a folktale of different racial origins, be it Chinese, Japanese, Native American, Greek, whatever, in a condensed and easy to comprehend form.

Each episode has a moral and is animated rather well. For the most part, most of the episodes are rather entertaining, though I haven't seen it in like 5 years. Watch if you see it on ^-^
