This DVD is one that was previously only available in the Hello Kitty 5-DVD gift set (which I bought). The cartoons on this DVD are from the 1980's tv show, Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater. They feature Hello Kitty, Tuxedo Sam, My Melody, Chip, Catnip, Grinder and Fangora, who are actors that put on plays. The DVD comes with 5 episodes, and each episode is 10 minutes long. This DVD contains: The Phantom of the Theater, Frankencat, Catula, The Pawed Piper and Rumpeldogskin. I previously owned the 2 Furry Tale Theater VHS and none of these episodes were on there, so they were entirely new to me! I'm a huge Hello Kitty fan and thoroughly enjoyed watching these "Hello Kitty" versions of classic fairy tales. I recommend this to Sanrio fans and anyone with young children!

The quality of the DVD's are more like TV broadcast quality and this is the reason I've given it 4 stars instead of 5. I think they could've enhanced the quality before putting it onto DVD. It is also not recorded in stereo sound. I already owned the 2 Furry Tale Theater VHS's (Kitty and the Beast, The Wizard of Paws), so I already knew what to expect.
I'm an adult Sanrio collector and I loved seeing these episodes, and I would feel good about letting my children see these too.
The following is the list of the episodes in this DVD:
"Hello Kitty Plays Pretend" contains The Phantom of the Theater, Frankencat, Catula, The Pawed Piper, and Rumpeldogskin.
This DVD contained 5 episodes which were not previously available on the 2 VHS's I had, so these were all new to me!
For those who don't already know, contained on this DVD are stories from the 1987 Saturday morning series "Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater". You wouldn't know that by watching the disc because there are NO SERIES OPENING TITLES and NO SERIES END CREDITS!!! Yes, you read that correctly. They left out one of the most significant parts of a television series. Remember the catchy theme song? Well, all you'll have are your memories because that theme won't be found here. There's a credits block on the back of the case that lists the voice actors and major crew, but it doesn't list the minor crew members. Pity all of the poor animators whose work on the series now goes uncredited.
The series consists of 13 half-hour episodes with 2 stories per episode (26 stories total). Yet only 25 of the 26 stories appear on these five discs. Keep in mind that's only 5 stories per each 10.00 disc (that's the original price). They could have easily fit the entire series onto two dual-layer discs for 20.00. So not only are you missing a story, and NOT getting the episodes in their original 2-story pairs with the original series opening titles and end credits, but you're being bilked for what little you DO get!
The previous VHS releases in the late 1990s (Wizard of Paws VHS and Kitty & The Beast VHS) were MUCH better than these five DVDs. Sure they only included four stories each, but they included the series opening titles and end credits, which makes them a vast improvement over these DVDs. I can only hope that someone at MGM wakes up and re-releases this series as a proper "complete series" set, but I doubt that that will ever happen.
