My favorite version of "Rumpelstiltskin"
9 August 2002 | by (Arizona, USA/Hull, England) – See all my reviews

First time I saw this as a child I adored. It was played on TV a few times during the 80's (I remember because once it was cancelled by a football game and I've never cared for that sport since). Billy Barty was so awesome and the prince wasn't bad despite his funny haircut. True, the songs weren't the greatest, but they weren't horrible either.
