Movie Reviews

A Listing For Your Information
LME | Central CA, USA | 08/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sad, but true, there was heretofore no information about the actual contents of this DVD set. It goes as follows:

Disc One: 6 Stories-75 minutes------
Elbert's Bad Word by Ringo Starr / Weird Parents by Bette Midler / Little Toot and the Loch Ness Monster by Rick Moranis / Choo Choo by Bonnie Raitt / Elizabeth and Larry by Jean Stapleton / Bill and Pete by Dudley Moore

Disc Two: 7 Stories-75 minutes------
Blumpoe The Grumpo Meets Arnold the Cat by John Candy / Millions of Cats by James Earl Jones / There's a Nightmare in My Closet by Michael J. Fox / There's an Alligator Under My Bed by Christian Slater / There's Something in My Attic by Sissy Spacek / Patrick's Dinosaurs by Martin Short / What Happened to Patrick's Dinosaurs by Martin Short

Disc Three: 6 Stories-78minutes------
Tugford Wanted To Be Bad by Steve Martin / Little Penguin's Tale by Candice Bergen / Moe The Dog in Tropical Paradise by Richard Dreyfuss / Amos, The Story Of An Old Dog and His Couch by Morgan Freeman / My New Neighbors by Billy Crystal / Rotten Island by Charles Grodin

Disc Four: 7 Stories-105 minutes------
The Little Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings by Shelley Duvall / Katy No-Pockets by Mary Steenburgen / Bootsie Barker Bites by Rhea Perlman / Ruby The Copycat by Shelley Long / Aunt Ippy's Museum of Junk by Kathy Bates / Uncle Wizzmo's New Used Car by Ed Begley, Jr. / The Christmas Witch by Angela Lansbury

Naturally these are read by, not authored by the various actors and actresses. The books chosen are not all time-worn children's classics, many are much more recent than Millions of Cats. I probably read only a fifth of these titles to my own children, which were read to constantly. However, parents and children love these DVD stories. Parents will get a kick out hearing John Candy, Steve Martin, and Angela Lansbury tell the stories. It is far preferable to read to a child on your lap for many reasons. But, these renditions are good for the times when someone has to get dinner on the table or nurse a sick cat. It will heighten the child's appreciation of books in general and, I believe, help encourage many to become good readers.
Best animated children's books!

"My grandchildren have loved each and every Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Story on VHS tapes, and now we can get them all in one DVD collection! Terrific news! They love Little Toot and the Loch Ness Monster, Elizabeth & Larry, Weird Parents, Millions of Cats, Choo Choo, There's an Alligator Under My Bed, Tugford Wanted to Be Bad, Bootsie Barker Bites, and many, many more. I always felt confident letting them watch these animated books (with Shelley Duvall's delightful introductions and the celebrities reading them so well) because it was as if I were sitting there reading good literature to them. These are the best DVDs ever and they hold the attention of 2-7 year olds!"

"These are some of the best shows for kids around and was really happy to see them finally make it to DVD. Great animation and narration.

I definitely recommend them!

"Shelly Duvall's bedtime stories is a wonderful collection of children's literature and the graphics are in keeping with the illustrations in the books. My granddaughter is thrilled with them. What a wonderful way to introduce children to these classic tales."
