Great Show, Greater Series
15 August 2005 | by denkinokotoSee all my reviews

This is one of many stories brought to life by the Saturday series "The ABC Weekend Special". There are other notable titles in this excellent kids/adults series. "The Land of Og" and "The Red Room Riddle" are both excellent. I was a kid at the time, and pancakes were on so my mind might be a bit fuzzy. I can only hope someone will have the wisdom to commit these excellent pieces of storytelling to digital video. If anyone else has seen this series please write in. I am not sure about the total number of stories or episodes there were as some stories spanned two or three episodes. The "Jumping Frog" episode is wonderful as well, with Billy doing a good job and REAL frogs!!! This series is similar to the PBS staple Wonderworks if you are familiar with that genre of programming.
