hosted by a puppet named Kino, and co-hosted by two women named Lucy and Mara. This educational series also featured celebrity guest stars that would read to children in the audience and to viewers at home.
I'm extremely glad to see this here. I remember watching "Long Ago and Far Away" as a child and being absolutely mesmerized by the stories. James Earl Jones hosted the series, which televised one-shot cartoons from all over the world. I remember watching a claymation version of "The Adventures of Frog and Toad" over and over again as well as a beautifully animated story about Pegasus and his friend, the muse Minerva.

If you ever get your hands on a copy of any one of these episodes treasure it because I am sure it is a rare find.
