A very popular children's series, the story of "The Seven Dwarfs and the One Bear" is a great way to start watching animation on DVD. There are a number of different collections available for viewing on the Internet, all of which can be found through an internet search engine like Google or Yahoo.
In the original version of the series, each of the seven dwarfs was named after his or her task; thus, there were seven dwarves working at home to make the most efficient home. The story was an inspiration for many of the modern day children's TV shows such as Sesame Street and Barney.
In the show, the first episode features seven little sloths who had the task of creating one bear from scratch. The next episode is a retelling of a similar story, where the seven dwarfs, in a bid to get into the royal cage, attempt to build the king a towering mansion with their handy tools.
The next few episodes were to feature the dwarfs building a castle from bricks, and then from the walls and roof. After all of the preparations had been made, the very first episode that focused on the seven dwarfs ends with them working together to build a giant boulder that leads to the next adventure!
