At a time when most other shows for children were either low-budget productions or product-inspired cartoons that were little more than half-hour commercials, this program set out to produce high-quality classic entertainment that children would enjoy. Much inspired by an earlier children's program, Shirley Temple's Storybook (1958) (also known as "Shirley Temple Theatre"), Shelley Duvall hosts this program featuring some of the best-known in Hollywood performing adaptations of traditional stories.

So I used to watch this as a kid, just like all of you, and I loved each and every one of them (my personal favorite being The Dancing Princesses.
I am now a sophomore in college, and when I found out about the DVDs my friend and I bought them.
Now... we watch them for the unbelievably blatant sexual references that we so clearly did not get when we were kids. I mean really...
"Use your mouth!" ... and then they get to sloppy second A little mini Dr. Ruth in a chest that teaches the king and queen how to have sex??? "Charity Starts.. right here", pointing to her scantily clad self
"I want Radishes!" "Are you sure you wouldn't like a nice cucumber instead?" as he leans over in bed
Little Red Riding Hood:

I know there are more, but I'm tired and have homework to do.
I just wanted to see if we were the only ones who found the sexual nature of this series so entertaining.
That, and the fact that Shelley Duvall was clearly on acid the entire time she made these.
