Three Harold and three bonus cartoons

"This dvd will be nice for any little Harold and the Purple Crayon fans in your home. There are three Harold cartoons: Harold and the Purple Crayon, A Picture for Harold's Room, and Harold's Fairy Tale. Each has a male narrator (not Sharon Stone) and runs an average of 7 minutes. There are also three bonus animations, produced by the same company but not by Harold author Crockett Johnson. The longest is 9 minutes, The Mysterious Tadpole by Steven Kellogg, about a boy's unusual birthday gift from his Scottish uncle. Drummer Hoff, by Barbara and Ed Emberley, runs 4-1/2 minutes and is a poem about a military group firing off a cannon. Smile for Auntie, by Diane Paterson and running 5 minutes, is about an aunt trying desperately to make her baby nephew smile.Each of the six cartoons can be run with English subtitles. This dvd is not fancy or loaded with extras, and the animation is primitive by adult standards, but small children will really enjoy these simple and amusing tales."
My 4 year old's favorite

"My son has sensory integrative disorder and LOVES this video. He walks around the house pretending to be Harold, drawing with his crayon. He drew a treadmill and started walking on (his imaginary) treadmill! What an inspiration for representational play. I can't recommend it enough. I wish I could give it more stars."
A Great Collection That is Not To Be Missed!

"The DVDs in this collection are not to be missed. Harold and the Purple Crayon, The Snowy Day and Corduroy are the headliners but the stories included are just as wonderful as those. Harold and the Purple Crayon is a bit disturbing because the films don't seem to be restored and taken care of. Great films nonetheless but no restoration was done. Harold deserved better treatment. The Snowy Day DVD uses mainly scanning of the pages in the book but it is done effectively and well. The pictures in this DVD seems better. All the stories are by Jack Ezra Keats and he is one of my favorite children's authors. Corduroy is my favorite of the DVDs. Corduroy is a live action film probably done in the 70s. It is very nicely done and very touching. The restoration on that film seems to done. It looks nice. The other stories are great too and done in the 90s. Here Comes The Cat! is fun and I had never heard of The Rainbabies before but will be on the look out for the book now. A very good set of DVDs for children and children's books."
