1.  Jim Henson's The Storyteller ~ The Complete Collection DVD ~ John Hurt
The list author says:
  "Wonderfully done compilation of Russian, German, and Irish folktales that bear resemblance to classics (for instance, "Sapsorrow" is akin to "Cinderella" in the lost shoe) but have their own elements that make them interesting. The only story I cannot recommend is "The Heartless Giant." A treasure for anybody of any age."
