It was fairy tales but far better than its Saturday Morning slot.
It was fairy tales but far better than its Saturday Morning slot. This ensemble group, many who later became famous, reenacted fairy tales as a troop of itinerant troubadours. The actors were obviously having fun and presented the program with respect and responsibility rather than a throw away piece of Saturday morning fluff. As I recall they would occasionally interact with their audience, speaking to the camera. And the content of their little presentations brought insight to the well known stories. You wouldn't recognize Alan Alda when he later appeared in MASH. Most of the others have long careers as reliable character actors. I suspect it would stand the test of time if it were released for DVDs.
