A beloved tale of consequence
17 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wonderfully narrated by Robert Hardy, this elaborate stop-motion animation is a literal recitation of Robert Browning's original poem "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" (published 1842).

The original box description reads as follows:

"For children of all ages, a beloved tale comes to life in a splendid production that highlights the art of the puppeteer. Against an imaginative medieval background, the story of the Piper who rids the town of Hamlin of its rats plays out – complete with the town's betrayal and the Piper's unique revenge. An enchanting tale for every family's pleasure."

Parents should feel obligated to show their children works like these, to instill an interest in the arts, imagination and even history to some extent. If you enjoy stop-motion and medieval tales of woe, this is your cup of tea.
