Animal Stories of Aesop
Animal Stories of Aesop. Narrated by Sterling Holloway. Disneyland Record DQ 1221. Walt Disney Productions. $2, Summer, '89. Extra copy for $2 from Coin Corner and Hobbies, Oregon City, OR, through Ebay, March, '99. Third copy from an unknown source.
One reader with occasional interruptions from kids and a bit of music. Versions are on the sentimental side. Androcles and the Lion (six minutes), The Ant and the Dove (four minutes), The Ox and the Frong (six minutes), "The Lion and the Goat" (three minutes), and The Fox and the Grapes (four minutes). The countercultural ant likes to sing, and so gets thirsty. The best fable features the (father) frog and the ox. "The Lion and the Goat" has a scratch and repeats on the original '89 copy. The fox passes up many grapes to get the best; the story runs to too much length.
