    Politically correct story line

    I remember playing the Peter and the Wolf record over and over again when I was a child so I couldn't resist buying the CD when I saw it. What a disappointment!
    The narrator sleepwalks through the story and the storyline has been changed to protect the sensibilities of little children. The wolf no longer is killed in the end, but is captured and put in a zoo! I can't help but think kids are subjected to much worse on daily TV. Kids have a strong sense of justice, and I think they know it's justice to have the wolf meet his maker in the end.
    And Sasha the duck (by the way, the animals no longer have names, they are just "the duck" and "the bird", etc.)is swallowed by the wolf and lives in his tummy! At least in the old version, we are led to believe Sasha was eaten by the wolf, but we later find he escaped and was hiding. Happy day!!
    What a bummer.I threw it out.
