Fables and Legends: Aesop's Fables, Volume One
Fables and Legends: Aesop's Fables, Volume One. 30 minutes. VHS 80462. Milliken Publishing Company. Universal City, CA: MCA Home Video. $3 from Theresa Thomas, Lakeland, FL, through Ebay, Feb., '00.
Six stories are offered here: "The Lion and the Statue," The Lion and the Mouse, The Tortoise and the Hare, THe Dog and the Shadow, The Bow Who Cried "Wolf!", and "The Fox and the Goat." A videographed group around a campfire gives the setting before and between the fables. Once a campfire character starts to tell a fable, we switch to watching stills of that fable, done by various visual artists. The voice of the narrator sounds vaguely like that of Leslie Nielson.
