I was in this as Little Boy Blue!

This was originally intended as a Thanksgiving Special to be shown annually. Instead it wound up being an episode of Off To See The Wizard.

Notable in this special was that Rowan and Martin appeared JUST before Laugh In hit. Dick Shawn before The Producers. The person who wrote the music, Sherman Edwards, went on to create 1776. The production staff went on to The Kraft Music Hall and other variety shows.

Included in the cast were: Maureen O'Hara/Mother Goose, Fred Clark/Big Billy Berry, Stuart Getz/Little Billy Berry, Frankie Avalon/Nancy Sinatra as Jack and Jill, Margaret Hamilton/Old Mother Hubbard

As a kid who LOVED The Three Stooges, I was in dreamland! WAY cool watching those guys work and them teaching me their slapstick secrets.

TCM has a more thorough credits list for this.
