Revolting Rhymes

Revolting Rhymes

Revolting Rhymes adalah serial televisi yang tayang di Inggris melalui saluran televisi BBC One. Serial ini diproduksi melalui kerjasama Magic Light Pictures (Berlin) dan Triggerfish Animation Studios (Cape Town). Di Amerika Serikat, Revolting Rhymes ditayangkan melalui saluran PBS (Public Broadcasting Service). Distribusi film animasi pendek ini dipegang oleh BBC.

Cerita dalam Revolting Rhymes diadaptasi dari puisi parodi penulis Inggris, Roald Dahl. Terdapat enam puisi di dalam buku Roald Dahl yang dipublikasikan pada tahun 1982. Roald Dahl menulis puisi anak-anak berisikan tema populer yang sudah sangat dikenal di dunia barat. Namun, Roald Dahl menulis puisinya dalam bentuk parodi dari cerita aslinya.

Enam tema yang menjadi puisi Roald Dahl adalah Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Riding Hood and the Wolf,  dan The Three Litte Pigs. Roald Dahl tidak sepenuhnya membuat parodi dalam kisah-kisah populer ini. Hanya bagian tertentu, Roald mengubah jalan ceritanya sehingga menjadi jenaka. Meskipun parodi bukan genre baru dalam sastra barat, namun memparodikan cerita klasik populer seperti Cinderella merupakan hal yang jarang dilakukan oleh sastrawan di barat.

Cerita parodi yang dibuat oleh Roald Dahl ini kemudian dibuat ke dalam versi layar kaca dengan sutradara Jan Lachauer dan Jakob Schuh. Bukan tugas yang mudah untuk menafsirkan puisi dan kemudian membuat naskahnya untuk kebutuhan film layar kaca. Tugas berat untuk membuat naskah film ini dikerjakan sekaligus oleh Jan Lachaucer dan Jakob Schuh. Hasilnya adalah mereka mampu membuat kisah lucu dan menyentuh tentang kisah persahabatan masa kecil anatara Little Red Riding Hood dan Snow White.

Revolting Rhymes sudah masuk ke dalam dua bagian, yaitu Part 1 dan Part 2. Dua episode Revolting Rhymes ini mendapatakan beberapa penghargaan prestisius.

  • Revolting Rhymes Part 1: BAFTA Awards 2017 (BAFTA Children Award for Best Animation), Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2017 (Award for Best Tv Special)
