Rated AD-G (Audio Drama “G”)Length: 21:53

Rated AD-G for general audiences
Contains thoughtless stepsisters and a rather cavalier attitude towards transmogrifying rodentia to be used as servants, but other than that, it’s pretty untroubling.

Additional Notes

Discussion topics:

  1. At what point do you think you would Kirk out and just give a flying leg kick to the stepsisters?
  2. Did you know that rats can have beards? How does this change your worldview?
  3. How does the villainy of the stepmother and stepsisters in this tale compare to the Disney animated version? How much does the villainous cat add to the animated version?
