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 Welsh flag is called Y Ddraig Goch, or the Red Dragon. It prominently features a red dragon, standing on three feet, with a green and white background. While this flag was only given official status in Wales in 1959, the red dragon it displays has been a symbol long associated with this country. Legends, rumors and myths surround the origin of the red dragon. The tale of Merlin and the battle between the red and white dragons is among those most often told. Merlin has long been a popular figure of Wales' Arthurian legends.
