All the episodes feature live action adaptations of fairy tales in costume by many well-known actors and are directed by such diverse directors as Tim Burton and Francis Ford Coppola. Twenty-seven episodes were made in total, but only twenty-six episodes have been released on VHS and DVD. The nineteenth episode entitled Grimm Party is a sort of "reunion special," but is presumed to be lost, although Starmaker II tried to have it released on DVD in 2004.
