Britannica's Tales Around the World teaches kids a familiar fairy tale from around the world, followed by two lesser-known stories that share a similar story. The series opens up in a computer generated landscape, containing a floating castle and the planet Earth in the background. Pat Morita would explain the significance of each of the three stories and then the camera zooms to a country on Earth where the fairy tale was traditionally told.

When Brightspark re-released episodes of "Britannica's Tales Around the World" under the title "Tangled Up", The Walt Disney Company accused the company for "misleading consumers with numerous releases that confuse and undermine the trust those consumers have in Disney", especially when the rerelease contained a similar title and cover artwork to Disney's 2010 film, Tangled.
