When do we get to the story Grandma?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peter and the Wolf [DVD]   (DVD)
Although not a lover of the cartoon format in general I plunged on this so that my grandchildren could be introduced to the music in a format with which they are familiar. The cartoon part is excellent for this and the four year old liked it so much that he watched it four times in succession and picked up the tunes and the difference between the instruments, without prompting.
But......the part of the story which involves 'real' people is laboured and sentimental and, each time, his plea was,' When do we get to the story?' It is obvious that he thought of the cartoon as the story proper and the rest as a penance to be got through on the way to it. His Grandma is much inclined to agree. But it's worth buying for the animation of the cat alone. Very unrealistic wolf though.
