Cartoon Production Information:
"Animated Tales of the World" was inspired by a simple idea: no nation is poor in stories, and we are all enriched by sharing them. In this series, village storytellers become global storytellers for all the children in the world. These indigenous tales and mythology form part of the heritage of each country, and each has been painstakingly crafted in a style of animation that reflects the spirit of its own culture.
Be careful what you wish for&. This is a theme of many folktales around the world. Oftentimes, there is a lesson to be learned, such as the consequences of greed and the reliance upon material possessions to bring happiness. Most often, the protagonist learns to be happy with the things he already has. In this tale from China, a young boy learns this lesson as a result of his experience with a magical and mischievous gourd.
