Humming to myself after--eek!--48 years!
21 March 2006 | by BouSee all my reviews

I Googled around today to figure out the name of a song I hummed a fragment of. It's from "The Land of Green Ginger," in this series (Jerry Livingston's "Abu Ali, the Mouse, and Boomalakka Wee"). I heard this on this series when I was five, which gives you an idea of how this show can linger. I also recently found my illustrated text version Storybook from 1958, which is a fond memory.

I'd be delighted to see this series on DVD. Near as I can tell from a visit to the site posted here by another IMDb user, only eleven shows thus far (from 1961) are. My remembered favorites are "Rapuzel," "The Land of Green Ginger," and "The Little Lame Prince," although it would take so little to bring back memories of more. Check the cast lists for the individual episodes--some heavy hitters!
