At last I have found the View-Master Aesop that I have looked for so long! In The Grasshopper and the Ant, the grasshopper has slept all summer and then danced in the fall; the former helps set up a rhyme for the fact that he wept in winter. The Dog and the Shadow gets only two images. There is a great leaping fox in the one image for The Fox and the Grapes! Town Mouse and the Country Mouse features great lighted eyes on the cat, and a fine paw reaching inside the Town Mouse's hole-home. The Tortoise and the Hare has a great leaping hare at the race's start. The other fables here are The Fox and the Crow, The Sun and the Wind, The Fox and the Stork, and The Lion and the Mouse. A sixteen-page color illustrated booklet parcels the story out among the slides. The set comes in a Special View-master outer envelope and inner packet. The reels themselves are in excellent condition. The copyright on the reels has changed from Sawyer's to GAF Corporation.
