"As the product's name suggests, the Shirley Temple Storybook Collection contains previously unavailable episodes from the star's short-lived fairytale TV series, The Shirley Temple Show. Shirley serves as your endearing host and navigator as the hottest stars of the `60s parade through several DVDs of familiar and less-known fables and fairy tales. Several notes to the prospective buyer: Shirley is a fully grown young woman by this time, so please don't go into this expecting an adorable little girl. Secondly, although Shirley hosts every episode and is occasionally engaged as a minor role, she is not the star in these features--that job is delegated to luminaries such as Landau and Moorehead.
That said; this DVD pack is an excellent opportunity for the avid Shirley Temple fan to expand their collection with material that hadn't been available for nearly fifty years. Fans would also enjoy the opportunity to see the star in her later years, since we all too-often neglect that phase of her career in favor of our idealized childhood image of the actress. In any event, this pack is an excellent value for the money and an equally excellent way to expose children to a Disney-free version of popular stories (because why should one company have a monopoly on your children's minds?)"

"This product was most likely low budget but to be honest with you it is actually enjoyable to watch. Basically its similar to Barney or similar show 6 disks with 2 one hour shows on them. Many old timer comedians such as Agnes Morehead (from what some of us remember as bewitched)and others of the 1961 timeframe. Some might like it only for the value of seeing an adult Shirley Temple. Otherwise great for the kids without the going green mentality by most shows now a days. I recommend it for all Shirley Temple fans, past and present."
