I would love to see the stories again
22 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have the same feelings about these stories... It has been a long time but I perfectly remember stories like Rapunzel, the Nightingale, the Emperor's new clothes, Rumpelstiltskin, Rip Van Winkle, Hiawatha, Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, Mother Goose, The Wild Swans, and many others. I watched the show every week looking to see a new story. It is really sad that things so good are not available while others violent ones are our daily bread. I have been looking online to see if I can buy them but there are only the Shirley Temple's movies. Hope I can find all the series one day on DVD. It would be wonderful to show them to my kids. Nice things like this should not disappear!
