I had watched some of the episodes of PBS. It's isn't worth it. I grew up with the Anne of Avonlea and of Green Gables movies as well as the road to avonlea series. The cartoon took anne as a child and put her with sara, felicity, and felix as children. Bit confuisng, considering anne would be an adult when the road to avonlea hit the tv stations.
We're Kindred Spirits After All

"Anne: Journey to Green Gables is an animated version of the original with Megan Follows and it's also a prequel to the animated series. What you'll see is how Anne got to be in Green Gables. After Anne's imagination gets the better of her when she's working for Mrs. Hammond, she is sent to Grout Orphanage where the sinister Madame Poubelle resides. Desperate to leave, Anne makes up a story that she is an heiress to a big fortune. Knowing that Anne is going to get into trouble, Mavis, Poubelle's secretary, sends her off to Prince Edward Island to live with the Cuthberts. If you've watched the animated series, you will see Felix and Felicity but you won't see Dryad, the wood nymph. Instead you'll see Billy the squirrel whom Anne meets at the orphanage. He is like Anne's conscience who tells her what's right. Think Jimminy Cricket from Disney's Pinocchio. When Madame Poubelle finds Anne and puts her on her hot air balloon, Billy saves her and Madame Poubelle goes down with the balloon. Although this movie is mainly for children, adults will love it too. As Ken Sullivan said on and on in the behind the scenes section of the DVD, "this is a video for kids to watch with their parents"."
A cartoon BASED on "Anne of Green Gables"

"There are ways this cartoon is cute, because it is BASED on "Anne of Green Gables." But... and this is a big but.... BUT.... so much is changed and added, if you're a real "Anne of Green Gables" enthusiast you will be very disappointed. It's cute and fun for someone who has never experienced any other "Anne of Green Gables," but for those of us who have this cartoon is a real let-down."
Wonderful animation, but evil characters seem out of place

"I think it's a great idea to make an animated version of this story we all love so much. A good amount of the dialogue was exactly like the movie -- I liked that. I also really enjoyed the fall colors in the animation. The little girl who did Anne's voice did a great job. My main critical comment about the animated version is that the evil characters (especially the lady who is the head of the orphanage) seem really out of place. These characters and the far-fetched plot that unfolds would never have been in the original Anne movies, and I thought it really took away from it. People who like the Anne of Green Gables movies like them because of the overall sweetness and innocence in them. I think most people would have preferred that the animated version reflect this same feeling instead of this unbelievable, scary scenario that is not what people expect in an Anne of Green Gables story. I would also say that it would be for older children due to the evil characters being a little over the edge for younger children."
