Two storybook treats with Shirley!

"Yet another delightful disc packed with two choice episodes from Shirley Temple's anthology series, SHIRLEY TEMPLE'S STORYBOOK (aka "The Shirley Temple Show"). Acting as a precursor to later series like "Faerie Tale Theatre" and Jim Henson's "The Storyteller", SHIRLEY TEMPLE'S STORYBOOK was a big ratings winner for NBC. Temple hosted and also indulged in an occasional starring role, surrounded by an amazing cast of noted Broadway and Hollywood talents.
Both of the episodes from this disc are taken from the 1960-61 season.
PIPPI LONGSTOCKING (Season 2 Episode #15): Astrid Lindgren's colourful, fearless young heroine comes to life thanks to a perfectly-cast Gina Gillespie. We follow Pippi on several adventures with her neighbours Tommy (Gregory Irvin) and Annika (Kelly Smith), including a day at school where Pippi matches wits with teacher Miss Lindquist (Renie Riano), and a visit to a carnival with Tor Johnson as the strong-man!
KIM (Season 2 Episode #2): Shirley Temple must have especially loved this episode, as it was repeated several times during the run of SHIRLEY TEMPLE'S STORYBOOK. Based on the Rudyard Kipling novel, the story follows the incredible adventure of one small boy (Tony Haig) upon whose shoulders rested the entire fate of the British army. Co-starring Michael Rennie and Alan Napier."
