  • Anne of Green Gables is a classic!

    Starting out as a book this story hit home big. Now PBS has taken that fun captivating story and turned it into a colorful animated children’s show. This show is loved by the young for its magic. It is also loved by the old who remember the book. I love this bright fun and adventurous story about a girl growing up with her new mom and dad. She may not have blonde hair and blue eyes but we all still love her. She has red hair and has freckles. I wish PBS would bring it back. But I guess when the book runs out so does the show.
  • Another good family drama from PBS.

    a good drama that you should watch if you have never seen it. If this is a show that you do not normally watch and you are sitting at home with nothing to do, you are going to wish you had it on tape. Having it "on tape" had become the generic term for recorded programs. Today you are more likely to have the show on Tivo or DVR than VHS, or god forbid Beta!! It is kind of like how a lot of people still call CD's "records" or "albums." Anyway, back to the show. This is the type of show that is really pretty good if you would just give it a chance. So on those cold, lonely, rainy days, pop in your tape or DVR or whatever if you were smart enough to tape it. If not, check to see if it is on as a re-run. After all, as they say, if you have never seen it, it is new to you.
  • Over all review of the show and information that any Anne fan would like to know!

    To many Americans Anne of Green Gables was just another name, but on Prince Edward Island in Canada she is our version of Johnny Appleseed. Generations of children have enjoyed the classics stories of Anne of Green Gables written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. The setting of Montgomery's books was a place she knew all to well, her home. After nearly 60 years of being a fictional character in a book and a highly popular series Anne saw the day of light in a new way, an animated way. In September of 2001 Anne of Green Gables premiered in the U.S on PBS and Canada on Teletoon. The show was highly popular and ran for a total of 26 episodes in one season before its cancellation. It is unknown why the series ended, but the 26 episodes that were produced were remarkable. Anne's sheer innocence is heartwarming and her bright perspective on life is a breath of fresh air. The show was about Anne, a young orphan who was adopted by Marilla and Matthew Curthbert who originally requested a male orphan, but received a female; Anne. Soon enough Anne proves herself worthy of living in Green Gables and soon becomes like a daughter to the two elders. Anne is surrounded by many children her age and together they can overcome anything. This charming series shows the beauty in friendship, honesty, and respect, many of which cartoons today lack to show. At the end of each episode "real live kids" are asked various comprehension questions about what happened in that days episode and the morals and values taught. Sure it may sometimes be cheesy, but it really puts things in perspective of what the people behind the animated program were striving for. The show currently airs in the U.S on various PBS stations, but do to a surplus of shows the program is mostly seen once a week. Anne of Green Gables no longer airs in Canada. So far the series has released three DVDs each containing two episodes. The DVDs are:

    Anne of Green Gables The Animated Series, Vol. 1 - One True Friend / Babysitter Blues

    Anne of Green Gables The Animated Series, Vol. 2 - The Sleeves / Butterflies

    Anne of Green Gables The Animated Series, Vol. 3 - The Avonlea Herald

    No other merchandise of the animated series has been released in the U.S, but there are a few coloring books and various toys in the Canadian market.
