What Children's Television Should be
30 March 2003 | by (Durham, NC) – See all my reviews

Almost 50 years later, I remember seeing these stories as clear as day. Probably my favorite was Rapunzel, told with all the loving detail and care that was usually reserved for dramas.

These compare favorably to Shelley Duvall's fairy tales and had the wonderful advantage of showing a grown-up Shirley Temple.

I simply loved them.
