"I watched this with my 3rd grade class and I loved it! It is very funny and sarcastic and the kids loved it too."
Johnny Appleseed - A Good Folk Tale for the Whole Family

"Tall Tales and Legends is by Fairie Tale Theatre's Shelley Duvall. They take all of the old fables told to you when you were young, and bring them to life, with lots of 80's movie stars.Johnny Appleseed stars Martin Short as the title character, who goes around planting America's apple orchards. Its got a good message, that even someone weird shouldn't be shunned, they could actually help you out! It also has Rob Reiner, Molly Ringwald and Michael McKean.The bad thing I find with the Tall Tales series is the sound... I don't watch it in the media room with the sound system, I find it works better in the den on my plain old TV. There's alot of background noise that can get distracting. So no the sound and picture aren't perfect, but these are low-price family videos, so over-all they are a good deal!"
Farce not fable

"The product description of "classic American folk tale" might lead one to believe that this movie is the legend of Johnny Appleseed, when in fact, it is not based on the legend nor on the factual life of Johnny Chapman. It is instead, a farcical adaptation that, even with the great talents of Martin Short and Rob Reiner, falls short of funny. I was hoping for something entertaining and educational for my young grandchildren, but this film was neither. I ordered Walt Disney's MELODY TIME at the same time and can recommend its short classic, LEGEND OF JOHNNY APPLESEED.
