I include this quote from Lisa Henson which seems fitting for such a release as this and as children, we all picked up on this ....
"I believe that my father had some kind of direct experience of the spiritual nature of reality, maybe a vision, that he tried to convey perhaps unconsciously in his work - that this world we experience is illusory and that there is a different, more loving and transcendent reality beyond this world of imagined conflicts" - Lisa Henson
In The Song of the Cloud Forest the puppets are enjoyable, except the funky monkey looking things. I was surprised that it was very unrealistic compared to other Jim Henson shows. The background was incredibly fake and the people were clearly blue screened on the background. The story was great - the quality of the presentation was poor.
Also included on the DVD is an episode of Animal Show. I LOVE THIS! The Animal Show features amazing puppets that are very true to life and more realistic. The characters are funny and the whole show is entertaining. You can really learn a lot from the Animal Show, even if you are adult and think you know it all.
There is also a Fraggle Rock episode (I loved them as a child) which a very important message about how our choices as people really have a strong inpact on the creatures around us. I thought it was great.
Aside from the poor quality of the Cloud Forest episode I think this is a fantastic DVD over all and well worth adding to your family collection.
