Excellent TV show
"Grim Tales" was an awesome TV show! I used to watch it when I was 8 years old. I never understood why it came on SO LATE at night--around midnight on the BRAVO channel. Rik Mayall is hilarious! If you've ever seen the movie "Drop Dead Fred", you know he is a comic genius. His facial expressions and range of voices give him full ability to tell Grimm Fairy Tales effectively. Each show he would narrate a different fairy tale, like Rapunzel, The Three Feathers, etc. Although the narration stays true to the original stories, he makes full use of improvisization and modern adaptations. In between his narration they sometimes show animations and have little plots going on with Rik Mayall and the crew, or his chicken chair. I hope they make a DVD
