    The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer's place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence. This dramatization remains faithful to the book's plot and intent and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message. Learn More

When the slipper fits a sweet young peasant, the wedding is hastily planned for later that day, but it is revealed that his bride-to-be is an impostor. More ladies try on the shoe and more weddings almost happen. Finally, he discovers Cinderella, but she isn’t ready to marry a stranger who can only recognize her by her shoe size.
