Kids will love it
11 December 2005 | by hottuna14See all my reviews

This series did the rounds on ABC Kids once about 2 months, before being relegated to a less popular Saturday Morning slot for repeats. Whilst it isn't as funny as other modern day adaptations such as 'Martin Morning' or 'Once Upon A Time', it should still prove popular for kids who love a good story and aren't too fussed about quality voice-work or believable plots. The animation and sound is simple yet effective, and the characters very clear-cut with good morals and values.

Overall, a clear return to Hans Christian Andersens traditional fairy tales, with the only bells and whistles being in the surprisingly good intro before each episode. This short section is actually quite meaningful (I should know I studied it for English) and should offer some parents a bit of insight into how their kids view the world, sometimes on a much deeper level than the parents, and always on a more fun one. Certainly not groundbreaking stuff, but worth a watch if you get the chance.
