Editorial Reviews

Includes Four Magical Episodes from Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre Digitally Restored and Re-mastered!

Talking bears, sleeping giants, handsome princes, evil fairies and more fill this 4-episode collection from the award-winning series. Some of the most treasured bedtime stories are brought to life with glorious productions and magnificent costumes that will leave you dreaming… happily ever after.

When Jack (Dennis Christopher) trades his cow for magic beans, he gets more than he bargained for, especially when a beanstalk leading to a Giant’s (Elliott Gould) castle grows out of the ground.

After a wicked fairy, Henbane (Beverly D’Angelo), casts a spell on the Princess (Bernadette Peters), it’s up to a brave Prince (Christopher Reeve) to save her.

Rip van Winkle (Harry Dean Stanton) was a kind, gentle dreamer whose life changes forever when he travels into the mountains and encounters the ghosts of Commander Hendrik Hudson (John P. Ryan) and his crew.

While strolling in the woods, Goldilocks (Tatum O’Neal) stumbles upon an empty house belonging to a family of Bears (Alex Karras, Brandis Kemp and Donovan Scott). After she eats their porridge, she falls asleep in one of their beds…

4.0 out of 5 stars three all-time FTT classics--plus one dud August 15, 2009
Four more beloved episodes from Shelley Duvall's FAERIE TALE THEATRE series. Bundled together in this set are two of the classic early shows ("Sleeping Beauty" and "Goldilocks") but also one of the rare clunkers ("Rip Van Winkle").

The story recounts a childless king and queen (played by Sally Kellerman and Rene Auberjonois) who are finally blessed with a child after receiving some helpful advice from a fairy. At the child's christening, all the fairies are invited to bestow gifts upon the little princess. However, the wicked Henbane (Beverly d'Angelo) gets left off the list and gatecrashes the event, cursing the princess to a premature death from a spindle-prick. Kindly good fairy Cookie (Carol Kane) remedies the curse by changing a few details: the princess won't die, only sleep until woken by the kiss of a true Prince (Christopher Reeve). Bernadette Peters stars the title role.

Here are the adventures of a ringletted brat called Goldilocks (Tatum O'Neal) as she happens upon the 'deserted' house belonging to three bears. After helping herself to their porridge and breaking Cubby Bear's chair, she goes to sleep in his bed. When the bears return, she gets scared away...but not for long!...

Jack (Dennis Christopher) lives with his loving-but frazzled mother ("Soap"'s Katherine Helmond) in near poverty. The only thing left of value for them to sell is Jack's beloved cow Spot. Reluctantly, Jack sets off to market with the cow when he meets a strange old man who offers him 5 magic beans in exchange for the animal. When Jack returns home, his mother chides him for his foolishness and the beans are tossed outside...

This was bad, I should have returned it. I did not give as a present, because it was terrible, terrible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice shows December 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
I was disappointed to find that it is just the same shows as you can get in the full collection. I had bought this, the princess tales and the full collection thinking it was three different collections of different shows. Now I have two sets that show the same shows as the first I bought them and I have to figure out what to do with it. Perhaps I can find someone with little girls that will enjoy these shows as much as mine has. They really are good shows.
