Summary, etc.:
(1st work) Georgie : In this classic tale set in New England, a little ghost named Georgie leaves his home in search of a new haunt when the creaky stairs are repaired. New version narrated by David de Vries. (2nd work) The three robbers : Three fierce robbers terrify the countryside until they meet a little girl named Tiffany, whose charm turns their gold to good. Both narration and music are performed by director Gene Deitch. (3rd work) A dark, dark tale : The jorney through the moor continues up spooky stairways, through perilous passages, around creaky corners, and on to a delightfully farcical finale. Narrated by Ian Thomson, with music by Ernest V. Troost. (4th work) King of the cats : A suspensful American folktale that tells why nine cats bore a coffin mournfully through a cemetery; what the meaging of the small coronet of gold was and who was Tom Tildrum.
