What's the story?

The Nutcracker Suite is coming to town, and not only are Angelina and her mom going, but they've also got an extra ticket! Whom should she take: Alice or Lily? That's a thorny problem, and it only gets worse when Angelina accidentally invites them both in ANGELINA BALLERINA: THE NUTCRACKER SWEET. What's a mouse to do? This collection of episodes from the popular animated series shows the gang planning a party for their beloved Ms. Mimi, feasting on delicious holiday treats, and planning a group project. They encounter a few problems, but the gang manages to make things come out right in the end, and they usually learn a few important lessons along the way.

Is it any good?

Angelina Ballerina is charming. The young mouselings are sweet to each other and earnest in their attempts to be good dancers, good students, and good kids. This collection shows how the best intentions can easily go awry, in ways that might seem familiar to young viewers. Even better, it shows how kids can make wise decisions and solve their real-world problems. There's nothing flashy about this series -- no explosions, no robots, and no tie-ins with fancy toys. Instead, it's just timeless, wholesome entertainment for young children.
