Now Available In DVD!!
5 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too was enchanted by the wonderful stories of Shirley Temple's Storybook. My favorite stories were Madeline and Pippi Longstockings. My favorite actors in all the world were Gina Gillespie and Michel Petit. Probably always will be! Like others have written, I remember scenes as clear as if it were yesterday! Scenes from Madeline are especially burned in my memory forever! I have checked the Museum of Broadcasting in NYC and in Los Angeles over the years, but could never find these available to view.

Last week a miracle happened! I found out that there is a wonderful internet site that just became available called ShirleyTemple.com. At 77, Shirley being the very special person she's always been, has finally released these amazing family friendly shows on restored colorized DVDs! There is a box set, not all of them, but included are my very favorites!!! I am tremendously blessed!!! I have ordered mine and you can now order yours too! I had to share this exciting news with all fans of the show!
