"The FAMILY 20 MOVIE PACK is a treat for kids of all ages. These classic movies will never lose their appeal. If you'd like, go ahead and sing along with Abbott & Costello, Shirley Temple or Danny Kaye. Is high seas action what you prefer? Then be sure to check out "Captain Kidd" or "Long John Silver." For fans of great literature, there's also "Gulliver's Travels," "Jungle Book," "Little Lord Fauntleroy" and the Pied Piper. You'll even find some more modern family-oriented titles. All in all it's a great mix, at a great price!
COMEDY KINGS 20 MOVIE PACK is an excellent companion to this box set.
