Classic Henson Magic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jim Henson's The Story Teller: Volume 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a wonderful 'childrens' series featuring John Hurt and his dog companion telling folktales by the fire.
Each episode has a full range of Henson Creature Shop creations and characters played by famous names (including French and Saunders, Brenda Blethyn, Jane Horrocks, Sean Bean and Alun Armstrong).
This DVD is only the first five episodes but does include 'The Solider and Death' (the one with the little red devils) and 'The Luck Child' (the one with the griffin, "snoozy woozy").
If you like beautiful and scary stories, especially if you are a fan of Labyrinth or the Dark Cyrstal, you'll love this!
I can't wait for the second volume to come out.
