A girl named Duck - or rather, a duck who wants to become a girl - falls in love with a prince. One day, a bizarre old man emerges and gives her a magical pendant that transforms her into the waltzing Princess Tutu. Now she must choose - for those who accept their fate find happiness, those who defy it, glory.

The broadcast series Princess Tutu (2002) combines elements of Hans Christian Andersen, Swan Lake, Sailor Moon, and Ranma 1/2 into a shojo (girl's) fantasy. Duck (Ahiru in Japanese), a typically maladroit anime heroine, attends the Gold Crown Academy of ballet, although she's not one of the better students. A strange man who may be Drosselmeyer from The Nutcracker gives her the power of transformation: when she says, "quack," she turns into a duck and requires water to change back into a human. But she becomes the exquisite Princess Tutu when she needs to aid Mysto, the best male dancer in the school, who's literally lost his heart. Duck, Mysto, and their friends may also be the characters in Drosselmeyer's last fairy tale, The Prince and the Raven. A mixture of broad comedy, balletic poses, and syrupy romance, Princess Tutu will delight adolescent girls. (Rated TV 14: brief nudity, cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon
