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.

The exchange of stories was once a great part of Pakistan's cultural heritage. In fact, the old section of the city of Peshawar was the location of the qissakhwani bazar, "the bazaar of storytellers." Because of its location on routes linking Central Asia with India, the Far East and the West, people from many cultures and traditions gathered to hear and exchange stories. Beast tales are a common form of folk literature from Southern Asia. In addition, many tales from Southern Asia are based on a theme of unconditional love. "Podna and Podni" brings these two elements together.

  • The Crown and the Sceptre (Arabia)
