Cute - I like it! It uses simple vocabulary, is easy to follow, and is a lot less boring than many materials that use simple vocabulary.

Are there other short videos like this? I hadn't seen them.

This video reminds me of what I thought was an Aesop fable, or it could have been a joke, where the donkey is asked, "Do you want to take the path down, or the path up?" The donkey responds by saying τὴν ὁδὸν ὀρθήν. I can't seem to find the passage -- does anyone remember the Greek citation?

Here are some links to Greek fables about the Ass/Donkey:

Here are some videos of Aesop's Fables: http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=aesop+ass+fable&qpvt=aesop+ass+fable&FORM=VDRE. Some of these could be adapted.
