Production Notes:


A series of 39 individual animated folk tales from the creators of HBO's "Shakespeare: The Animated Tales and Animated Epics". Most stories were animated in the country the tale takes place in. Each thirty-minute edition features two story adaptations representing two different countries and featuring a variety of innovative animation techniques.

"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.

This story is a trickster tale from Taiwan in which a young girl successfully outwits a seemingly cunning tiger. This tale is related to similar tales told in mainland China. This is due, in part, to geographic proximity, as well as the similar cultures and cultural backgrounds in that region. Tigers are found throughout parts of Asia, and Asian folk literature reflects this.

  • The Crown and the Sceptre (Arabia)
  • The Chief and the Carpenter (Caribbean)
