Faerie Tale Theatre Collection

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
In 1982, when cable TV was in its infancy, actress-turned-producer Shelley Duvall did something wonderful. She gathered a formidable roster of A-list talent, past, present, and future, to bring some of the world's most beloved fairy tales to life. Inspired casting coups include: Herve Villechaize as Rumpelstiltskin; Mick Jagger as the Emperor in "The Nightingale"; Paul Rubens (a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman) as Pinocchio; Susan Sarandon as...

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
In 1982, when cable TV was in its infancy, actress-turned-producer Shelley Duvall did something wonderful. She gathered a formidable roster of A-list talent, past, present, and future, to bring some of the world's most beloved fairy tales to life. Inspired casting coups include: Herve Villechaize as Rumpelstiltskin; Mick Jagger as the Emperor in "The Nightingale"; Paul Rubens (a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman) as Pinocchio; Susan Sarandon as the Beauty to Klaus Kinki's Beast; Alan Arkin and Art Carney, tailor-made for the con men in "The Emperor's New Clothes"; and Vincent Price as the voice of the Magic Mirror in "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." As with the equally impressive Rabbit Ears animated productions, Faerie Tale Theatre treated its source material, and the audience, with great respect. But FTT was much more playful in its adaptations, allowing some smart and sly humor to tickle any adults in the room. In the series-opening "Tale of the Frog Prince," for example, princess Teri Garr remarks that frog Robin Williams is quite a "horny toad." The multi-award-winning FTT also showcased up-and-coming talent. A pre-Beetle Juice Tim Burton, for example, directs the fantastic "Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp," starring James Earl Jones as the Genie. Shot on video, each episode in this anthology series was lavishly mounted. Granted, there have been tremendous strides in special effects in the ensuing years, but FTT is all about story. For families who have long since worn out their VHS copies, the DVD release of FTT is a wish come true, and a chance for this benchmark series to enchant a new generation. You will watch happily ever after.

    So many memories!

    I used to love these tapes as a kid! I'm so glad that they're available here..my own children can watch them some day. They really are magical!

    amuses kids and their parents

    I saw these when originally released and was immediately enchanted. As noted in the description there are jokes that only the grown-ups are going to get, like in Looney Tunes. Jeff Goldblum as the Big Bad Wolf (vs. Billy Crystal as the smart pig), Eve Arden as Cinderella's evil stepmother (vs. Jean Stapleton as the Fairy Godmother), James Earl Jones as the genie in Aladin (vs. Leonard Nimoy as the evil sorcerer)... the inspired casting goes on and on, but you're only impressed by it if you're over 25. There's plenty of site gags and silliness for the younger set. The best line of all: Bernadette Peters as Sleeping Beauty asking Christopher Reeve (the Prince) when he kisses her awake: What kept you? If you appreciate that kind of humor, with great costumes and actors who are clearly having a good time, I recommend this series strongly.
