The Story of Cinderella opens as Cinderella's life changes for the worse when her father leaves on a business trip. No sooner is he out of sight than Cinderella's stepmother has unceremoniously moved her two own daughters into Cinderella's room, thrown out her things, handed her a servant's dress, and put her to brutal harsh menial labor. The series covers Cinderella's trials and tribulations as she tries to adapt to her new life while suffering the abuse of her stepmother and her two stepsisters. All the while, her fairy godmother, Paulette, subtly watches her and tries to influence events to fix Cinderella's life without her noticing. One of her first acts in this is to grant several of the animals of the house the power of speech, thus giving Cinderella companions in her dog Patch, a pair of mice named Chuchu and Bingo, and a bird named Pappy.

Memories From My Childhood
1 August 2009 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

The Story Of Cinderella or 'Cinderella Monogatari (in Japan 'Original) was one of my favorite childhood shows. I used to love watching this show and i was never bored with it no matter how many time it was repeated. Unfortunately I didn't see the original version of the show completely; the show used to air in Arabic in the Space Toon Network. It was dubbed by the company related to Space Toon Venus Center for artistical production and distribution. The Venus Company totally altered this anime, but even though, Cinderella Monogatari was totally successful in it's altered version and original after I watched some episodes later in Japanese.

This anime is seriously something you can enjoy with your whole family.

Yeah and FYI: Stay away from the Arabic version of this show; you're head may be exploded from over recurring scenes and translated script.
