User Reviews

Just judging from the Teletunes, this may have been a good show.
18 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Accoring to the IMDb summary of this show "Mr. Piper" had Teletunes which were narrated fantasy stories. Somehow at least 11 of these Teletunes have been available in the American public domain for years. These include: Ali Baba, The Kind Hearthed Girl, The Story of Brave Molly and The Tin Soldier. These Teletunes are drawn with very crude, limited animation. Yet somehow with Alan Crofoot's narration, fanciful stories and good voicing, they are enjoyable enough. Alan Crofoot makes a likable host, the Teletunes are enjoyable stories and one can only wonder what the rest of the program was like.

I have read some sources that say that while this program was syndicated mainly in Canada and Britain it did have some very limited release in America. WGN-TV archival site lists this show on it schedule in 1965.

10 of the 11 available "Mr. Piper" Teletunes are available on a dollar DVD called "Herman and Friends" and The Tin Soldier is usually included in some Christmas Cartoon collections.
