As a kid, I used to watch the TV show Wishbone. I loved that show. I recalled a while ago that there was a Pride and Prejudice episode, and when I searched for it on YouTube, there it was!
Wishbone was a series during the 90's about a Jack Russell Terrier of the same name who lived with his owner, Joe, and Joe's mother, Ellen. As something would happen between Joe and his friends, Wishbone would be reminded of a classic work of literature. The episodes would shift back and forth between the modern story and the classic literature story.
While the Pride and Prejudice episode (called "Furst Impressions") was a condensed version of Pride and Prejudice and the costumes weren't all that great (let's face it, BBC has spoiled me: lol!) , I would still say it's good to introduce children into the world of Jane Austen. Below is part one of the episode; the other two parts are also on YouTube.
I hope I brought back some great memories of your childhood! :-)
