Storyline

A group of animators are in their study trying to make a shadow puppet show with fables from different historical periods and come up with six sweet and naughty fairy-tales: The princess of Diamonds, the Boy and the Fig Tree, The witch, The Old Lady's Cape, The Crunch Queen and the Fabulo, and Prince and Princess. All the stories have a moral message but they are not as traditional as it might be thought. Written by GitanillaOZ

I love the way the dragon poo out all the canons!
8 December 2006 | by princessdecadenceSee all my reviews

All the stories are funny!

I missed the first story but the rest are good.

They should have left out the drama thing and let them be proper separate stories. I didn't like the fact that all those are just staged. It should have been just the stories rather than people in costumes.

The animation was quite rough in my opinion.

The best bit has to be when the dragon from the sorceress's castle shoots canons back to them from its butt. Giggle-a-mania.

It's definitely worth a watch.
