I'm just submitting this review to counter the previous one-star review by someone who apparently doesn't appreciate the incredible music & story of Peter & the Wolf. This particular version is wonderful! The actors who narrate it are completely connected & make the story so much more. This version has a happier ending than the old one, which makes it much more suitable for young children. My 4 children - from 2-8 yrs - adore both this version of the story and the music! They act out different parts, connected to the music, & thoroughly enjoy it! I highly recommend it. (Btw, don't just take my word for it - check out the Amazon U.S. site for this particular product & read the reviews there. They love it too!)

I can't believe that kids around the world are still being subjected to this tuneless load of nonsense. I vividly remember myself and all my buddies at school being bored to death. It is not suited to children. Adults may love this load of old tripe, but kids are likely to refuse to continue in any form of classical music education. Prokofiev should be shot, the self-indulgent twit. Thankfully he expired some time ago, but his instrument of child torture continues beyond the grave. If you want your kids to like classical music then get them something lovely and tuneful. I remember falling in love with the nutcracker suite, Handels stuff and Rossini, and all at the tender age of 6 or 7. My brothers, even younger, loved these guys too.

HASH(0xab0f293c) out of 5 stars The best "PETER AND THE WOLF" ever Feb. 25 2007
By Children's Book Lover! - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was surprised to read the other review, because I recently bought the

re-released DVD reissue of this "Peter and The Wolf" for my 6 year-old

grandson, and not only did he love it, but so did I!! I am a

professional violinist and music educator, and know this score inside

and out. The previous reviewer who said the producers had changed Prokofiev's music is dead wrong -- it is note for note perfect, and in addition, is beautifully played. (It was actually Disney's version that was cut!!)

The characters in Chuck Jones version, designed by Mr. Jones, are

delightful -- and not just a recycling of his Warner Bros., ensemble.

The animated tale, which is the centerpiece of this production, and

where Prokofiev's score plays out in entirety, is magical. And Kirstie

Alley's narration is full of life and spirit -- really fantastic. I

also loved Lloyd Bridges as the grandfather, and young Ross Malinger as

both the live action and animated Peter. The live action parts were

magical, and gave some real-life relevance to the animated story, and

the ending was enchanting. It brought a tear to my eye. Ross Malinger

was endearing in "Sleepless In Seattle," and he goes to the next step

here. And his rapport with Lloyd Bridges seemed so very real. A

fantastic bonus to this production is an extraordinary "Guide To The

Symphony Orchestra" bonus feature at the end, which thoroughly explains

to the young viewer how Prokofiev used the musical instruments to

portray the various characters. And the producers wisely use YOUNG

teenage musicians to demonstrate the instruments, which really makes it

come to life for young viewers. I Googled for more information on this

production -- I can't figure out why it isn't more frequently seen. I

noticed it won the Emmy for Best Children's Program, as well as many

other Emmy nominations and awards. I also saw that the critics gave it

great reviews -- one from the Philadelphia daily newspaper called it

"The best children's television special ever." So it is a mystery to me

why this production is not a television classic. But in the meantime,

do yourself a favor -- and for your children and grandchildren -- and

watch it!

HASH(0xab12fc3c) out of 5 stars A Perfect Lesson in Music and Imagination May 17 2006
By Lifelong Kindergarten Teacher - Published on
Format: DVD
As a kindergarten and elementary school teacher for 60 years, I have used various recordings of "Peter and The Wolf" in my classroom going back to 78's . . . it has always been, and still is, the perfect vehicle to foster a love of classical music in children. They learn the instruments of the orchestra while on a fantastic flight of fancy and adventure. I discovered this particular version about 10 years ago, and have worn out several videotapes. I am delighted to find it now on DVD, with even more imaginative features and bonuses. THe animated tale is wonderful, with Chuck Jones' delightful and looney characters. And I especially love this version because The Duck lives! (Not to be a spoiler, but in other versions he does not.) Kirstie Alley's narration is wonderful, and updates the traditional narrative while still paying tribute to the original. And Lloyd Bridges and Ross Malinger are wonderful. An incredible bonus with this production is the tremendously excellent video feature "Guide To The Symphony Orchestra," featuring young children playing the instruments from "Peter and The Wolf," and a behind-the-scenes look at how an orchestra comes together, how the instruments work, and how and why Prokofiev wrote his themes he way he did. THere is also a great "Making Of" Documentary by Lloyd Bridges own grandson. All in all, there is so much to this release . . . if only there were more like it. And if only more filmmakers for children would go to this much care in sparking the imaginations of our children! This version is a classic, and I have seen it captivate children over and over.

HASH(0xab582e70) out of 5 stars Visually Sumptuous meets Musically Stupendous May 16 2006
By Maestro Lupo - Published on
Format: DVD
Peter and the Wolf has made many appearances in my life, as I have children who have loved it from their earliest ages. I have also conducted it more than once myself and seen it performed by a woodwind quintet with props and by a brass choir with myself at the piano. So I know it pretty well; it always pleases.

The ABC Prime Time Special version is the most wonderful incarnation the piece has ever had on this planet. Combining award-winning actors, producers, writers, director and conductor in a multi-media banquet, this production has it, says it, shows it, and inspires the little story in imaginative and creative ways that no other ever has or possibly could.

I would give it 10 stars out of a possible 5 and recommend it without the slightest reservation. It should be on the DVD shelf of every child.

HASH(0xab0f40fc) out of 5 stars A Gentle, Charming, Magical Delight! June 20 2006
By William Wadsworth - Published on
Format: DVD
I have loved Peter and The Wolf since I was a child, and was delighted to share THIS Peter and The Wolf with my children. Chuck Jones' characters made the animation accessible and familiar to my kids and held their attention, and I loved the fact that the musical references were subtly worked into the story. Kirstie Alley's narration is so full of life and fun . . . she herself is obviously caught up in the story. The animation is charming and magical, and the live action story touched me. It was wonderful to see the charming Lloyd Bridges, and he brought to both Grandfathers (animated and live action) a touching, crusty, wonderful heartwarming glow. The special Introduction To The Orchestra which followed was also fantastic, and offered a very creative, but non-scary, look at how a symphony orchestra works, and how the instruments lended their personalities to the story. And of course, Prokofiev's music remains the biggest star of all, and is beautiful as always. In this world full of violence, over-stimulation, and "edgy" entertainment for kids, this gentle, charming, simple tale -- so beautifully done -- was a breath of fresh air. I wish there were more DVD's like it. And my kids agreed.

HASH(0xab5de2f4) out of 5 stars not what I expected Nov. 10 2011
By nany - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I got this for my 3 year twin granddaughters and although they like it I was disappointed. I always remember Peter and the Wolf beginning by linking the different instruments to the characters and the cd does that but not this dvd. That was important to me as I loved that aspect of the vinyl record and book I had when I was younger. I am glad the cd and book combination follows that path.
