Finally, CliffNotes Get Animated! They Bring Shakespeare Cartoons, to Life!

Reading Shakespeare can be as boring as watching a high school game of golf. But now students across the nation will be able to learn about six of Shakespeare’s classics without being bored to death. The current titles are – Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, and A Midsummer’s Night Dream. There is no word on when or IF they will have other titles coming to the series but this is a great start. The whole reason behind the animated series is to make student’s want to actually pickup the book and learn more about the story. Highly unlikely, but it’s worth the try.

Now, you will have to pick up the book and learn about it for class. Cliff Notes already shortens the books tremendously, the video plays shorten the cliff notes about as much. The video above has a small reel of what you can expect when you go out and see the show’s your self.
