What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this isn't exactly a motivational tool if you want your kids to get into music (especially piano-playing). There's a dramatization of the now rather archaic (not to mention unhygienic) "blood brothers" kid ritual. Though it seems ridiculous that young kids could be frightened by Seuss whimsies, Stephen King (!) claimed he was terrified by one of the books -- so there. Maybe the executioner here is the scariest character, but he does nothing except sing and work an elevator to the dungeon. Though it precedes the MPAA rating system, some video versions carry a "G."
