It was this nine episode Jim Henson show. Every episode had this guy telling these  fairy tales that were basically modified Grimm's Fairy Tales.  It used a bunch of cool puppets, art and weird illusions. It was amazing!!!  And there was no CQI in it at all!

I had forgotten the name but yeah I think I did see that! Did one involve this model of a dragon type thing in a school or something that this kid ended up talking to - like it came to life?

I know "The Storyteller"... watched all of the episodes (I think there were only about 8 of them) and the one about greek myths as well (different storyteller but with the same dog)  ;)

It came out in the 80's.  The Storyteller was an excellent (and short-lived) series.  You can bet I'm picking that up on DVD.

Also, did you know they are making a live-action version of The Last Unicorn?  I can't wait!  Angela Lansbury is playing Mama Fortuna again - now she's actually old enough to really play her, not just voice her :D.  I love that cartoon!  I hope they make it in the style of Legend or Labyrinth or Dark Crystal.  One thing I must say for the fantasy movies of the 80's, they were beautiful!  We really don't have anything like that anymore.

I heard they're also making a live-action version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Yay!

Although, I think I remember hearing about some British TV-Movie type live-action versions of the first three books that were made a while back. Too bad the tapes/DVDs prolly wouldn't run on my equipment, that would be neat to see.

I saw that British production of the Narnia Chronicles ;D
I don't think it covered all of the books - either it didn't have "The Magician's Nephew", "The Horse And His Boy" and "The Last Battle", or those episodes weren't aired here :-\
I see why they wouldn't want to include "The Last Battle" though... that book was so depressing.

I have some of those Narnia movies on tape and the whole collection is at the library. They're ok.

Yeah, a couple of the movies drag on a bit, ah well. At least the books are always good. ;)
