Product Description

African folk tales, often collected from village elders, are in danger of being lost today as the practice of oral storytelling diminishes. HBO Family feature Magic Cellar, brings this great tradition to a whole new generation of children in a groundbreaking animated series.

Magic Cellar follows the adventures of Pula, a young African girl who stumbles upon an enchanted world in her grandmother's basement. There, she encounters a talking gecko and a wise old cricket, among other fascinating creatures. Pula and her friends, Marcus an African mixed-race boy, Navitha, an Indian girl, Josh, a Caucasian boy, and Melissa, an Asian girl, take on various roles and interact with animals in each of the stories they tell.

I have pre-ordered this DVD as well as Volume 1 for my nephew. He is almost 4-years old and loves the Magic Cellar series shown on HBO Family. This is a great program for children. It is very educational by teaching children through storytelling about fundamental values. There is a lesson to learn in each of the story episodes that involves the consequences, of not sharing, selfishness, being untruthful, not caring for the nature and the environment, and not being respectful of others in addition to many more. This is the type of programming that you would expect to see on PBS or Noggin.

The episodes in vol. 2 are episodes 6-10. There was no information about each of the episodes above, so I looked online and was able to find a synopsis for each of the Episodes 6-10

Episode 6
Monkey Business
A tailor's dress has been slashed by someone. The baboon decides to hold a trial, questioning a Rat, Jackal, Elephant, Wood, Fire and Water. When everyone insists they are not guilty, He sentences each with a punishment. The lesson being, learn the significance of telling the truth.

Episode 7
Watersnake and the Magic Stone.
Watersnake has a magical red stone, capable of making the owner very rich. Xlam the great San hunter decides he wants the stone and steals it away. To punish the people, watersnake drinks all the water in the river. The people have been put into peril by the greediness of the hunter. The hunter realizes what he has done and returns the stone to the snake and learns not to be selfish.

Episode 8
