| Utterly magical
I think between the summers of 2005-2009 my best friends and family thought i was completely mad being this 12/15 year boy old watching children's cartoons on the ABC, well if you see hidden gems like these it is hard to not be mesmerised. It was a great introduction actually no, personal-realisation/eye-opener of the magic that the great writers within the literary canon has provided the generations. People have long been mesmerised by Andersen's tales even without reading his books or seeing this magical rendition of his work, some without even knowing it. This is a gem well worthy of any DVD collector's library, get the collectors edition i believe these ones will be off high value in the future. Utterly beautiful; Fantastic voice acting, fantastic yet simple animation to a truly great adaptation of Andersen's work. Any member of the family would enjoy this collection.
