This review is from: Jim Henson's Storyteller: Definitive Collection [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Utterly charming, and absolutely captivating.
The first nine stories are European folk tales, told by the masterful John Hurt.
The stories are brought to life with a handful of stars all early in their careers. Sean Bean, Miranda Richardson, Jennifer Saunders, Brenda Blethyn and Jonathan Pryce, to name but a few.
All this interwoven with the brilliance of Jim Henson. Puppets, animatronics and charming special effects.
Get this for those dark winter nights, if you have children, or even if you don't have children. You need no excuse!
Winner of 1 Emmy and 2 BAFTA's
1 complaint though...Nine stories are simply not enough!
