Imagination over budget
23 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As I recall it, the series was made with minimal costumes and props, no sets (a darkened studio) and first rate acting all around. It called on imagination over budget. The actors (dressed in black tights) mime their characters and many of the props. I recall horses done a la Monty Python (albeit without the coconuts.Nothing prevented an actor from becoming a stork or a fox before my very eyes. The stories varied in length from a minute to twenty or so.

This series brightened my childhood on Saturday mornings by allowing me to discover the wonderful stories of Lafontaine, Aesop and others. A whole generation of kids NEED to be shown this series. I really wish more of these were available on DVD. With extras please.
