Mila is an 8-year-old quirky, energetic tomboy who loves to tell you traditional story-tales but with her own twist. Kids will be inspired to use their imagination and to become storytellers themselves. Audience participation is triggered by Mila’s direct-to-camera asides all along the episode; her questions and games bring kids right into the story. Join Mila, laugh at the zany dialogs and fresh art in this innovative series which explores the world of classic tales.
Traditional tales are timeless stories that everyone loves to delve back into, generation after generation. Far from old-fashioned clichés, the series “Missy Mila: Twisted Tales” revamps this cultural heritage through the imagination and spontaneity of a present-day little girl. Mila’s stories are peppered with spicy anachronisms and offbeat re-interpretations. So, don’t act surprised if you see a prince applying hair gel before setting out to rescue a princess, unless the latter is a kung-fu champion, that is! As for the dreadful Minotaur, Mila prefers to picture him as the Toupouloupou, a sweetie pie with a sweet tooth. And why do the wolves always have to be depicted as the bad guys? And, in her very personal adaptation of the Three Little Pigs, Mila swaps the awfully shy big bad wolf for an affable bull that… rocks!

I received a copy of volume 1. Christian immediately fell in love with the cartoon. Which isn’t a guarantee. There are some shows/movies that I will turn on and he will protest as vehemently as one might protest eating vegetables. However, this one he really seemed to enjoy. It’s become one of the dew DVDs that he will request specifically. Sometimes I will hear him chanting “Mila! Mila!” the same way that they do in the theme song.
I also find the show to be cute and entertaining. I suppose it says something good about it that I have had to watch it several times and have not grown tired of it yet. Lol! I would like to have the second volume to complete the set.
