A Disney Channel Special
9 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although some people believe this is a Faerie Tale Theatre Episode, it is not. This wonderfully animated/live action short was only aired on the Disney Channel, along with another Tim Burton short entitled Vincent.The two were placed together as a half hour segment.The Hansel and Gretal story retold.Hansel and Gretal must escape a witch and her remarkable gingerbread house and find their father.It is a Japanese spoof of the story. The short is only about 20 minutes long. What animation there is, is similar to that of A Nightmare Before Christmes. It is mainly live action.I do recommend seeing this special if you can obtain it -- it is one of Tim Burton's odder works. Tim Burton did a Faerie Tale Theatre Episode Entitled Aladdin, and that is also well worth seeing.
