Loved the series.
11 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

I loved the series " The Shirley Temple Storybook". The one episode I remember the most was " Beauty and the Beast". They were all good for the age I was at the time. I would love to be able to have this series on DVD or VHS so my grandkids could see it. I would like to know if it is available for purchase. I remember most of them being in color, but they very well could have had some of them in black & white. It really didn't matter because the stories were good. It had some great actors in it also. Most of them I don't remember but would love to see the show again. It was done so well and Shirley Temple was a great storyteller .
