Now it can be told: The seductive music that the Pied Piper played to woo the children of Hamelin was jazz. At least, that's the take in this installment from the delightful HBO series, Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child. Mixing old tales with new world vision, this series adds other races to the white European stereotypes. Here, the selfish King of Hamelin (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) loves to dismiss all politics so he can count his money. Unfortunately, the rat problem becomes so severe that plans must be put into action. When a smooth, jazz-playing stranger (Wesley Snipes) wanders into town proclaiming that he can address the problem, the city council is ready to give him riches. When they fail to deliver the reward, they pay a high price. Sharply animated and wonderfully scored, The Pied Piper is another high-quality 30-minute short from this great series. (Ages 5 and older) --Doug Thomas
