5.0 out of 5 stars The Joy of meeting an old friend
This was as good as I remember it, when the stories were first broadcast. I'm passionate about making Shakespeare accessible to children as soon as possible. The strength of these lovely cartoons is that they do just that and are, at the same time, an utter joy for adult viewers too. This is real quality; you just have to look at the cast list to see that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality DVD
I was disappointed with the quality of the DVD and the return process. I had arranged for it to be collected and left it in a visible place to be collected by DPD. They overlooked it and didn't collect it. When I tried to rearrange collection, I spent a considerable amount of time waiting for an answer. I still have the DVD.

Prompt delivery. Everything in order. The series is beautifully made. The transfer to DVD is a touch bright in some of the episodes, but not so much as to annoy. :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as remembered from TV show, a gem of a series, 19 Aug 2014

This review is from: Shakespeare: The Animated Tales [DVD] (DVD)
Bought as a gift for my husband who loved it. These were shown on TV many years ago and it was good to see them on DVD, not easy to get hold of but a real gem of a series.

OK for over 10s but if you have little ones, take note of the PG. Even though these are animated tales with stop motion animation or as cartoons some of the subject matter and imagery could scare younger viewers.
