Sparky's Magic Piano

Poor eight-year-old Sparky hates to practice the piano. But surprise! The much resented instrument speaks, promising to play any musical composition its young owner secretly requests. Upon hearing the music, Mom and Dad book the boy on the Grand Concert tour...and it's superstardom for Sparky! But when the whirlwind of success goes to the fake virtuoso's head, Sparky gets some much-deserved comeuppance...and learns a valuable lesson in the process! Celebrity voices, wonderful music, beautiful animation and a first-rate story make "Sparky" a video treat that can't be beat!
