"Presented by the Jim Henson Company, "3 Pigs and a Baby" mixes The Three Little Pigs with Three Men and a Baby. In this first 'Unstable Fable' from the Jim Henson Company, it tells the tale of the three little pigs. See, once upon a time, there were three little pigs. The first little pig built his house out of straw. The second little pig built his house out of sticks. The third little pig built his house out of bricks. One day, a special-ops team of wolves decided that they wanted to take out these three little pigs. So, they sent their most deadly agent...The Big Bad Wolf. The Big Bad Wolf huffed, and he puffed, and he blew down the houses of pigs One and Two. But when he got to the third house, he couldn't blow it down. So, he tries climbing down the chimney. That doesn't really work out. The Big Bad Wolf burns to death (off screen). This forces the special-ops wolf team to come up with an even newer plan. It would be something more inventive and ridiculous. They try to trick the pigs into adopting a baby wolf, who would grow up to eat the pigs. When they say it's an unstable fable, believe me--it is!

I'll be the first to admit, it is amusing little tale in the tradition of Hookwinked but don't expect this to be of the calibur that movies like Shrek, Happily N'ever After or Ice Age are. It simply isn't. Sure, it has it's moments of greatness and amusement but it just doesn't measure up. While it is a good purchase to make for the family, there's something a little off about the film that makes it not achieve greatness like the aforementioned movies did. It may be the character designs, I don't know. I just couldn't seem to get into it. At any rate, don't let my opinion about the film keep you from getting is a good film..just not great!(Get what I mean?)

Brad Garrett, Steve Zahn, Jesse McCartney, and Jon Cryer head up the cast in vocal talent. Special features include: Animation Education, Re-imagining a Classic, and Voices of 3 Pigs and a Baby.

Great DVD item

"I purchased this DVD for my 4 year old son, and I love the way the fable is told, so that he understood, and the language is not offensive at all. Your toddler/pre-schooler will love this DVD.. The price was phenomenal and the shipping time was electric!"
Wonderful Seller! Super fast shipping!
