Editorial Reviews

This week features a musical mini-series, the three-part story of Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe. Josephine is the story of a young giraffe who is unhappy with her short neck and yearns for one that is long and graceful - like all the other giraffes have. Through a series of adventures, both funny and poignant, Josephine comes to accept - and even like- her uniqueness. The music is lively, the characters delightful, but the message is serious. All of us have characteristics that make us different than everyone else. And there's a field trip to see real giraffes too.
Regular Neighbors include Chuck Aber (Neighbor Aber), Betty Aberlin (Lady Aberlin), Don Brockett (Chef Brockett), Joe Negri (Handyman Negri), David Newell (Mr. McFeely), Audrey Roth (Miss Paulificatte), Elizabeth Seamans (Mrs. McFeely), Maggie Stewart (Mayor Maggie), Bob Trow (Bob Dog/ Robert Troll), Bill Barker (Dr. Bill and Elsie Jean Playtypus), Lenny Meledandri (Prince Tuesday) and Carole Muller Switala (Ana Platypus). The musicians were John Costa, Michael Moricz, Carl McVicker and Robert Rawsthorne.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This is a DVD that is produced by Amazon when ordered. Why on earth does it cost $30 for 5 episodes? We love Mr. Rogers, we enjoy the show.

It is free on Amazon Prime, or $1.99 per episode, or you can purchase the entire season for less than $18, but that is an online version only through Amazon viewing (which is not always up to par). A DVD costs next to nothing to produce; the package likely a few dollars. But Amazon has set a high price because this can't be purchased anywhere else. That is sad. I wanted to purchase this as a gift; I wanted to have it so when we travel, it is available. However, at these greedy prices by Amazon, I won't be purchasing them. And I don't recommend them.

Believe me, I hate to give a Mr. R. product a low rating. This rating is not for the episodes, but for this product. I give this version, sold at this ridiculous price, a one star.
(I am sorry, Mr. R.)

Fred Roger had a gentle approach with what are still timely childhood issues. His frankness with difficult issues helps open conversation.
