a haunting poem a bit disturbing but excellent entertainment.
4 June 2011 | by (Chandler, Arizona) – See all my reviews

I wish I could remember all of the doctor Seussish poem the Groon . The Groon came on the ABC 'Children's Television Workshop' Saturday Mornings. A break from the standard cartoons. I do remember the first time I saw it. I was sitting for my sisters kids around Halloween . My young nephew who was eight years old and my niece a year younger were throwing pillows and jumping around, suddenly stopped and sat down, first lured then mesmerized by the eerie tone of the narration and totally captured by the Chuck Jones visual on our small black and white TV. It reran a few time for a couple years, but them faded into TV history. For months nay years to come when it was dark I could get both of the kids to cringe, by in the deepest voice I could muster, by simply saying, Beware the Groon is coming soon, so keep one eye on the moon and the other on anything moving about the room. What a terrible Uncle I was.

I thought of it from time to time in the following years and yet when asking about it only a few remember. Just the same I have been desperately seeking a copy of this T.V. series or even a printed version of this Ray Bradbury poem for a long time. I think many would enjoy this if it were available on DVD
