4.0 out of 5 stars Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater comes to DVD! June 22, 2005
The cartoons are from the 1980's Hello Kitty tv series "Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater," which are variations on popular fairy tales/movies. They feature Hello Kitty, My Melody, Tuxedo Sam, Chip, Catnip & Grinder, who are actors in the theatre.

Each DVD contains 5 fairy tales, and each fairy tale is about 10 minutes long and has its own unique take on the familiar stories. They are also changed to be less violent, nicer and more suited for children (water balloon fights instead of guns).

The quality of the DVD's are more like TV broadcast quality and this is the reason I've given it 4 stars instead of 5. I think they could've enhanced the quality before putting it onto DVD. It is also not recorded in stereo sound. I already owned the 2 Furry Tale Theater VHS's (Kitty and the Beast, The Wizard of Paws), so I already knew what to expect.

I'm an adult Sanrio collector and I loved seeing these episodes, and I would feel good about letting my children see these too.

The following is the list of the episodes in this DVD:

"Hello Kitty Saves the Day" contains Grinder Genie and the Magic Lamp, Peter Penguin, Tar-Sam of the Jungle, Paws of the Round Table, and Crocodile Penguin.

This is a review of a series of Hello Kitty DVDs released by MGM in 2003: HK Becomes a Princess, HK Saves the Day, HK Tells Fairy Tales, HK Goes to the Movies, and HK Plays Pretend. These five discs have also been bundled together into the Diamond Collection, as well as paired into a Plays Pretend/Saves The Day 2-Pack (alt url). Finally there's a "Triple Feature DVD Set" with the discs for Princess, Saves The Day, and Fairy Tales all in one case (this might be exclusive to Target). Whew! Amazon may display this review on the page of another version of this product, for which this review may not apply. After reading this review, please click on the link so that you can be assured that the product this review applies to is the same one you thought it was for.


For those who don't already know, contained on this DVD are stories from the 1987 Saturday morning series "Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater". You wouldn't know that by watching the disc because there are NO SERIES OPENING TITLES and NO SERIES END CREDITS!!! Yes, you read that correctly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really appropriate for children February 24, 2007
Unless you want your kids to hear Hello Kitty and her friends call one another "Stupid", "Dummy" and "Idiot", and threaten violence against one another "I'm gonna crush you like a grape", then this movie is not appropriate for young children. It seems like the villains in this series of short "furry tails" could be villainous without the hostile words and unnecessary violence. Each episode contains many incidents where one of the animals beats another unnecessarily and calls him/her ugly names. There's not a single moral lesson, such as sharing, helping others, etc., in any of the episodes.

And what's worse, there are numerous jokes/inferences made throughout the series that go way over kids' heads and offer no entertainment value. In fact, even from the perspective of pure infantile entertainment this video doesn't offer much. The characters who are not mean are not really contributing anything to the stories either. There's one episode, in fact, based on the Crocodile Dundee movies from the eighties, the ones with Paul Hogan. What kid gets that? And the story only makes sense if you saw the movies it's inspired by. I find this just plain stupid.

Now I'm looking for a hello kitty video that will contain some positive child-appropriate entertainment. Wish me luck!

My daughter loves these Hello Kitty movies and I got this one to add to her collection. Much better than some of the newer cartoons that are out for kids these days!
