You'll find all your old favourites here, complete with wonderful music tracks and charming narration. Disc 1 features 10 stories including Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots and Aladdin and his Magic Lamp. Please note, 192 mins is the total running time of Disc 1 & 2.

    I liked it but it would be a little better if it wasn't shadowy.

    The thing I liked most about these short tales was the animation. I liked that the characters were cut out instead of being modelled. Also I liked that the characters had some flaws when they were cut out e.g one of the characters in Cinderella had a long nose. What I didn't like was the version of Cinderella that was made in 1922. Of course I found that it was made almost 100 years ago exotic but in my opinion the story would be very hard to follow if you didn't know the story. The other stories I found extravagant! I liked that the animations were quite clear and easy to follow. I liked that the movement from the figures were very broad. Overall these stories are very good and I would recommend them to anyone who knows the story of Cinderella!

    I enjoyed the films it was amazing how some were nearly 100 years ago! When we watched Puss In Boots i didn't really get what was going on because the pictures were black and white you didn't get a full image of what was going on. I think the last Cinderella one was my favourite because it had a lot of sound in it, And the pictures were quite clear. I probably would recommend it to my friends .

    I really enjoyed these short films, thinking that they were made in the 1950s. I would recommend to anyone. The only thing was that it gave me a bad headache after each film. We didn't watch all of them, we only watched Aladdin, Puss in Boots and Cinderalla.
