The storytelling video shoot went well yesterday! I plan to give you an account soon, but in the meantime, does this video clip ring any bells with television viewers in the late 1970's?
As I think I've mentioned before, I didn't watch much television unless I was visiting relatives, and besides Mister Rogers and Wonder Woman*, I really enjoyed public telelvision's Once Upon a Classic, hosted by Bill Bixby, a.ka. The Incredible Hulk. Unlike the usual fare of Masterpiece Theatre, Once Upon a Classic had stories that were interesting to children. The story I remember best is Susan Coolidge's What Katy Did, followed by part one of What Katy Did at School. Anamaria of Books Together reminded me of my introduction to Katy through television. I'm sure the production values are quite low, but I'd still like to see What Katy Did again. I have all the books in the series in one volume. Most of them deal with Katy as a teenager and an adult, but as with Anne Shirley of Anne of Green Gables, I like the book best of when Katy was a little girl.
*They were two different shows, but I would have traded in all of my Strawberry Shortcake Dolls to see them in one show.
