A good collection for a long lost series.

"Alf Tales was a strange creation in my book. The Alf cartoon series was funny, but Alf doing fairy tales? In the end I have to say it worked... for the most part. The saving graces for the series were the witty stabs at pop culture and the occasional clever lines you hear. The animation is dated and rather weak even back in the 80's, with some of the slowest animation frame rates you can get from that era. Put it all together and you still have a funny series. According to my sources the episodes on this disk are as follows:

1) Robin Hood
2) Sleeping Beauty
3) Cinderella
4) Legend of Sleepy Hollow
5) Jack and the Beanstalk
6) Aladdin Brothers
7) Rapunzel

There are some good ones in this collection, especially Cinderella, who is visited by a Fairy Godfather who grants her three wishes she cannot refuse. Robin Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk have some fun jokes too. Don't expect any extras on this DVD. It's just not in the price point. However getting seven 22-minute episodes on one collection is a major plus, as opposed to the standard four episode collections these companies are still doing (as if they are stuck in VHS tape mode).

If you remember the show and remember getting some entertainment out of it there is no reason not to get this collection considering the price. If you only know Alf from the TV series and commercials this DVD is a different slant in Alf's world, but the irreverence is still there. If you never heard of Alf, but like strange slants in fairy tales this DVD is still worth a look."
Hilarious writing...seriously!

"One of my all time favorite lines comes from this cartoon show. Rhonda (playing Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz) reads from the Book of Truth: Volume 7 in order to melt the witches credit cards. Yes, credit cards- get her where it really hurts!
"Plaque can cause gum disease!"
"Oh no! My credit cards! They're melting! Melting! Ahhhh!"
Okay, so the animation is a little dated. Still, it's definitely worth a $10 preorder. If you're looking for something cute, funny, and harmless for when you have to babysit your nieces and nephews like I do, this is something they won't have heard of."
