Editorial Reviews

Steve Guttenberg (Three Men and a Baby) portrays Pecos Bill, the "King of the Cowboys," in this rootin’ tootin’ epic. Raised by coyotes, Bill puts the "wild" in the Wild West settlement of Petunia City. When his rowdy behavior gets him run out of town, he heads for Mexico. There, Bill lassoes a cyclone to save the state of Texas from drought. His heroics become campfire legend, proving that selflessness and bravery are never forgotten. The tall tale’s amazing cast includes Rebecca De Mornay, playing the sassy Slew Foot Sue, as well as comedian Martin Mull and Will & Grace’s Megan Mullally.

THIS VIDEO HAS BECOME A FAMILY FAVORITE FROM MY 2-YEAR-OLD BROTHER TO MY PARENTS. I LIKE THIS VIDEO A LOT BECAUSE IT IS FULL OF LAUGHS, AND VERY COLORFUL,WESTERN SCENERY. THIS IS A VIDEO THAT WE CAN ALL WATCH TOGETHER. WE ARE A FAN OF DUVALL'S TALL TALES AND LEGENDS, BUT WE MUST ADMIT THAT THIS ONE IS PROBABLY OUR FAVORITE. IF YOU HAD TO PICK ONE, THIS IS THE ONE TO START WITH. IT'S GUARANTEED TO LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN LAUGHING.

Like the previous reviewer mentioned, this is the best of the Tall Tales and Legends series. It hits just the right balance between storytelling and humor, and parents will find it just as entertaining as the kids. More than any of the others, this episode captures the flavor and magic of what tall tales are all about. It manages to maintain a sense of wonder that will spark the imaginations of the viewers. Steve Gutenberg has the role of his career as Pecos Bill. He is perfectly matched by Rebecca De Mornay as Sluefoot Sue. Director Howard Storm keeps things light and colorful (much as he did with the equally wonderful Faerie Tale Theatre version of "Three Little Pigs"). It's non-stop entertaining and I can't recommend this episode enough. Thank you Shelley Duvall! Quality children's entertainment doesn't come any better than this!

Probably one of the best Tall Tales available. Our whole family loves this one. Everyone in it is hysterical! The first part of this video also gives a good overview of what a tall tale is about.

I am a second grade teacher and I have used this DVD for the past five years as a supplement to my Tall Tales Unit. My seven and eight year old students absolutely love this DVD. Adults will recognize the all star cast. Students enjoy the exaggerated costumes,colorful sets, and the action scenes. This would make a wonderful birthday present for a child, especially if it came with a book about Pecos Bill. I highly recommend this DVD.
