great character actors and great fairy tales.
5 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

my son, Jeff, his mom, and I used to watch these interesting and terrific fairy tales in Odenton, Maryland. Jeff was about five years old then. We enjoyed the tales very much; and thirty or so years later I can still remember sitting in front of the television and enjoying them. My son had his Spider-man comics then, and I had enjoyed Turok Son of Stone and Blackhawk comics when I was a kid. But these tales on television were always an enjoyable way of spending a half-hour or hour. I don't recall which of the characters or tales Jeff or his mom, Terry, liked; but I can remember being captivated by Avery Schreiber, Paul Sand, and Richard Libertini. Also Richard Schaal and Peter Bonerz. It's also been nice whenever I've see any of these great character actors through the years in other shows or movies. It is sad, though, that Story Theatre is not on t.v. nowadays. Nor are the tales on DVD. I would love for my grandchildren, Samantha and JayJay, and their parents, Jeff and Alda, to be able to watch them.
