  • Recommended age range: 4-6
  • 10 minutes per episode

Ancient tales come to life in this creative and visually beautiful show! With origins dating back some 2000 years, Aesop’s Fables are some of the oldest and best-known stories in the world. Now they are lovingly brought to life in this beautiful animated series.

In this version, Aesop is a friendly wolf who happens to be the leader of a travelling theater group. Aesop writes and directs the plays, which are performed as they travel from town to town. Among the members of his company are a would-be writer fox called Presy, some mischievous pigs and a tough little rabbit called Libbit. They do not always agree with each other, and living in a cramped carriage together certainly doesn’t help! But they all know that if they are to put on a successful theatre show, they must put their differences aside and work together.
