"I especially enjoyed watching WINNIE THE POOH by BIL & CORA BAIRD MARRIONETTES with 5 year old TEDDY ECCLES. SHIRLEY is a wonderful host! VIC MIZZY did the music and WILLIAM ASHER Produced! The CHRISTMAS Episode of BABES IN TOYLAND was GREAT too with JONATHAN WINTERS, JOE BESSER, CARL BALLANTINE & JERRY COLONA. There is a neat postcard included with SHIRLEY from the actual show that you can slide in the plastic on the front of the box for a better and more accurate cover too! All in all....a GREAT set and well worth the price!"

"I'm very pleased to report that this set (and the other ones being released) are worth the money. Each episode is well over an hour, crafted lovingly by Shirley Temple Black herself. These early forays into television belong in the same collection with Mary Martin's Peter Pan and Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella (either version).
Whether you're a collector interested in classic children's literature, or in Shirley Temple's career, you should own these items.
My only complaint is that the episodes are selected in a "best of" format, and that the extras on each disk are very light. I'd love to see more about the making of, or an introduction to each piece, but that might be asking too much. Also, so far, only episodes from the second season of the show have been released this way. (The series only aired for two seasons total.)
Looking forward to more releases over time!"
