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.

Good show, if you get a chance watch it!
28 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, this is going to sound campy, i was a babysitter when this came out, along with the fact of younger brothers and sister. This is one of the few videotapes that i taped (off of PBS) and took with me that EVERY parent did not have a problem with their kid watching. In the age where your TV babysits your child more than you do, this is a program i could turn on and they would actually walk away with something other than mush on the brain. it was good from children 8 to about 14 (my 14 yr old brother (at the time) watched it fascinated for a long time, and is still one of his most cherished memories (one of the few times we didn't fight was when it was on) if you find it, or get a chance to watch it DO! definitely worth it
