Movie Reviews

Another ***Classic*** From Scholastic, But Contains Previous
Alex Honda | Los Angeles, CA USA | 10/06/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The A VERY BRAVE WITCH...AND MORE GREAT HALLOWEEN STORIES FOR KIDS from Scholastic is another treat for kids and adults who enjoy light-hearted stories and limited animation.

There are eight short stories on this set. Four of which are full animation (A Very Brave Witch, The Witch In The Cherry Tree, The Three-Legged Cat and The Three Robbers) and the other four (A Dark, Dark Tale, By The Light Of The Halloween Moon[limited animation], Georgie, Little Tim And The Brave Sea Captain) are just still images with camera pans.

Each story is narrated and make perfect bedtime stories for kids (or adults like me who enjoy these types of story-telling/old-fashion cartoons). Each story is delightful and include read-a-long text, which you can turn off as well.

Now the reason for the one-star deduction is because four of the offerings have already been released on another set from Scholastic. "By The Light Of The Halloween Moon," "A Dark, Dark Tale," "Georgie," and "The Three Robbers" were already available on
The Teacher from the Black Lagoon... and More Slightly Scary Stories (Scholastic Video Collection) .

Also, since this DVD set is being marketed as "Halloween Stories" three of the stories (The Three-Legged Cat, The Three Robbers and Little Tim And The Brave Sea Captain) aren't really Halloween related or spooky. They're wonderful stories but seem out of place on a Halloween DVD."
