I love Grizzly Tales For Gruesome Kids, although I am only eleven. I have an older brother who is eighteen and an even older father who is forty three yet they both like Grizzly Tales too. Grizzly tales may sound grotesque but it has a hidden moral in each story about being well mannered otherwise your pet snake that you have flushed down the loo gets his own back, or if you want to win every conker battle by taking all the conkers you can find you will find an unpleasent surprise awaiting next to you in bed! The narrator has an excellent voice to tell spooky, yet exciting stories. Overall I find this an excellent DVD that the whole family will enjoy.

My 5 year old daughter and I LOVE the Grizzly Tales series and this DVD selection did not disappoint. Funny, gruesome, with some great moral lessons. Recommended.

My ten year old daughter is obsessed with these stories after getting hold of a collection of the macabre short stories. The DVD was therefore a natural progression, and we anticipated great things. I must admit though, that I was disappointed by the rather basic animation of the episodes themselves, particularly as the opening sequence that accompanies each episode is superb. Nigel Planer's voice-overs are reassuringly familiar however, and the collection of tales is still good fun for fans of the Roald Dahl-esque brand of gruesomeness.
