"GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS is one of the best of the entire FAERIE TALE THEATRE series. Bright, breezy and with a flawless cast and script, it makes for irresistible viewing.
Tatum O'Neal is perfection in the title role. The story recounts the adventures of a ringletted brat called Goldilocks as she happens upon the 'deserted' house belonging to 3 bears. After helping herself to their porridge and breaking Cubby Bear's chair, she goes to sleep in his bed. When the bears return, she gets scared away...but not for long!...
After concocting the biggest lie she has ever told, Goldilocks decides to take further advantage of the Bears' hospitality!
Tatum O'Neal is joined by a strong cast including Donovan Scott, Carole King, Hoyt Axton, Alex Karras and John Lithgow."
TWO THUMBS UP FOR GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS!

"This is just what I expected a Faerie Tale Theatre production to be like. From mischievous young Goldilocks (Tatum O'Neal), to the friendly forest ranger (Hoyt Axton), to the three playful bears (Alex Karras, Brandis Kemp, and Donovan Scott), the movie is wonderful. This is a charming and humorous retelling of the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." It teaches a lot about friendship and caring. It shows how quickly an enemy can become a friend. I also like the fact that they add new parts to the story, such as certain scenes that involve the parents of Goldilocks (Carole King and John Lithgow), and more experiences with the bears. It makes the movie more interesting, and not just the same old story once again. All of the acting is very well done. Tatum O'Neal is exactly the kind of person you would expect Goldilocks to be: she's kind, curious, spunky, and of course, she has curly golden hair. In fact, the whole movie is very well done! I would definitely recommend getting this video for you and your family to enjoy over and over again!"
