One of my favorite episodes of the anime is the one where the girls (and Mamoru, Naru, Umino, and En) put on a production of Snow White and the Seven Six Dwarfs Wild Animals. I always wished they had done more episodes like that. Anyway, that got me to thinking...

What if Toei did a new show that was like a Sailor Moon Storybook Theater where each episode they adapted a classic book or story with each of the characters in said book or story being played by characters from Sailor Moon? (I know that'll never actually happen; I just thought it would make for a fun thread to break up the monotony around here for a bit.) What classics would you like to see them do, and what Sailor Moon character would play what character in said story?

Here are a few thoughts I had:

Cinderella
Ami - Cinderella
Berthier & Viluy - The Evil Stepsisters
Fish Eye - The Wicked Stepmother
(Human) Luna - The Fairy Godmother
Motoki - Prince Charming

The Secret Garden
Chibiusa - Mary Lennox
Hotaru - Colin Craven
Professor Tomoe - Archibald Craven
Helios - Dickon
Vesta - Martha
Nehellenia - Mrs. Medlock
Grandpa Hino - Ben Weatherstaff

Little Women
Makoto - Jo March
Usagi - Amy March
Michiru - Meg March
Ami - Beth March
Ikuko - Marmee March
Kenji - Mr. March
Asanuma - Laurie
Nephrite - Professor Bhaer
Zirconia - Aunt March
Haruka - Brooke

@MementoNepenthe Well, I guess one can still dream. :keke: Although I personally think that :usagi: would be a better pick for Cinderella, provided that her regular bio in SM isn't/wouldn't already be a Cinderella story...

Madame Bovary with Black lady as Emma Bovary & Demande as Charles Bovary.

The Picture of Dorian Gray with Minako as Dorian Gray.
Emma is supposed to be a nice looking lady with great desire inside, Black Lady looks too aggressive, Charles is also a cowardish nice guy, I don't think Demande fits the character at all.

I think Michiru probably fits Emma on the appearance and desire but she is too intelligent. Motoki probably fits Charles.

Frozen is...not...a literary classic...
Yeah but I just think Berthier&Koan are way too similar to Esla&Anna

You could go with The Snow Queen or The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for a classic story with a similar vibe. (Especially since Frozen is loosely inspired by the former.)

I think Frozen is inspired by Sailor Moon, they are just too similar. Snow Queen's plot and characters are entirely different.

Chibiusa-Gerda
Helios-Kai
Princess Snow Kaguya-Snow Queen
VesVes-Robber Girl
Michiru-Princess
Demande-Prince
Tomoe's Daimon-Troll
Setsuna-Old Lady who knew magic

It would be interesting seeing Demand as Charles—I chose him precisely because he doesn’t fit the character at all.

I would always like to see characters act out Great Expectations. It's a book that is often a high school's student's bane due to its length, but I always found it to be a beautiful soap opera that has never been properly adapted (even the mini-series was lacking).

Note, the characters do not all match up with who they portray, but I tried to get as many as I could. It has been a while since I read the book.

Pip - Shingo as a child, growing up into Motoki as an adult (I know their eye colors are different)
Estella - Hotaru
Herbert - Mamoru
Joe Gargery - Yuuichirou
Mrs. Joe - Queen Beryl
Uncle Pumblechook - the guy from the chess episode (Sailor Moon lacks a lot of older characters)
Miss Havisham - Queen Nehellenia, aged, of course
Mr. Jaggers - Kenji Tsukino
Wemmick - Rei Hino (She would be canonically cross-dressing when at work, but would be more like her Manga/PGSM self in the office, but her anime self at home when she'd have the cannons fire off)
Aged P. - Grandpa Hino
Biddy - Ami
Molly - Makoto
Magwitch - Gematoid-possessed Professor Tomoe in the first part, redeemed Professor Tomoe in the second part
Compeyson - Crimson Rubeus

I know I'm forgetting a lot of characters, but this is from memory.
