    A couple of kids befriend a clan of talking animals with the wiser ones being a hawk and a buffalo. When a issue arises, they often turn to a book full of stories (including mythical, fictional, and real) and correct the problem. Covers a lot of virtues depending on the circumstance with wonderful animation and narrations. Sometimes they tell different versions of a known tale. On of the better educational shows out there and it deserves to be a classic.moreless
  • One of the virtues, surely, is *not* being a hypocrite. Sadly, the show's creator missed out on that one.

    William Bennett was drug czar of the United States, having been appointed by the president, when he decided to write an inspirational book for children. It would serve as a guide for life and instill good morality in them, in a world where many parents feared for their children's safety.



    I don't know if it succeeded in anyone else's life, because it certainly didn't do much for William himself.



    Bennett turned out to have a serious habit smoking cigars. Furthermore, he had a nasty gambling addiction, so much so that the staff at the casinos knew him well-- and knew he'd keep throwing away more and more money, to the tune of seven or eight figures. One casino owner referred to Bennett thusly: "We have a term for people like that in the industry: *losers*."



    The only way this simplistic and sappy, cliched show could be a virtue to you would be if you did not watch it.moreless

    The Advebtures from the Book of Virtures involve two kids getting adice from a bufflo, a hawk, a praiedog, and a bobcat with long names from Greek. They tell stories to the kids from Greece, Rome, France, and FarilyTales well known. Like the Helen Keller story, The Kid who Cried Wolf, and a story about the "Moses" of her people, Harriet Tubman.
