Trivia

The American Dairy Association shared production costs for the film with Walt Disney Productions. Disney stopped showing it on The Mickey Mouse Club after the 1958-1959 season of the original MMC. (The last season was all reruns.) The film rights then transferred to the American Dairy Association, who made it available to schools and interested groups through the Education Film Library Association (EFLA) catalog for a few years ca. 1960-1965. ADA also published a 16-page, color, storyboard pamphlet of the film ostensibly penned by Annette, which was distributed in dairy farming communities. See more »

One Print is still in Circulation!
3 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Saw this recently after I moved to Verona Wisconsin where the series was shot- the public library there has a copy in their circulating collection! You may be able to borrow it if you are in the southern Wisconsin central library system (as long as library loan remains funded) I live down the road from the farm and you can see the same hill in the opening credits though the old wooden fence has been replaced (and with cows on it except during winter- the farm is still a dairy farm)if you drive east on G towards Verona from Springdale township. A lot of locals from surrounding farms were used in various bit parts with many of the "children" now in their 70's. I remember seeing the series when I was 6- at age 50 it did not hold up as well- though it is an interesting example of early television and a whole different approach to stories and story telling. It also does a very good albeit melodramatic of depicting a working dairy farm in the 1950's. It is interesting to see modern children's reactions to it.
