Alan Crofoot was the programmes host, introducing four parts in each episode. In the first part (Teletune) he narrated a fantasy story. In the second part (Port of Call) he presented films about children and events in other countries. The third part (Bag of Tricks) featured magic that was performed by Crofoot himself. And in the fourth part (Animal Farm) he told stories, that included characters such as Rupert the cat, Bessie the bunny and Kookie the kitten, all in a miniature farm/barnyard setting. Written by
I purchased a DVD collection from the company "DVD Megapacks" a few years ago entitled, "!00 Cartoon Classics." Disk 4 of that collection includes the following Teletunes: Ali Baba, The Magic Horn, Brave Molly, Hasty and the Princess, The Kindhearted Girl, The Three Sisters, and The Proud Princess.
As noted in other comments, the animation is crude but when accompanied by Mr. Crofoot's narration makes them interesting and introduced my children and me to several fairy tales I and they had never heard of. Tales such as "The Three Sisters" have character voicing with little or no narration and they do not fare as well.
If you have young children as I do, these are a decidedly different type of animation than the kids were used to, and generally enjoyable.
