Mother Goose Treasury, Volume 1

My grandfather passed away last weekend at age of 92.

This past week I had the pleasure (circumstances aside) to visit with some family members who I hadn't seen in quite some time. As my cousins and I recounted our various memories of visiting our grandparents, one common topic was a VHS tape that was played over...and over...and over. The Mother Goose Treasury, Volume 1 was likely a video that my grandmother picked up on a trip to Wal-Mart one day but it became something of legend among the grandkids.

A few years back, I bought a DVD copy for myself on Amazon but it appears that a saint among us has put the entire video up on YouTube.


I've found that this is just as obnoxious now as it was thirty years ago. Have you ever seen something that is so bad that it's entertaining? Well add another title to your list.

I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather. It sounds like he lived a long and full life with lots of loved ones around.

That video is super cheesy! It kind of reminds me of the Babes in Toyland movie from 1961 which also featured Mother Goose and her talking gander (who sadly didn't fly).

I have a similar weird experience with watching Shelly Duvall's Fairtytale Theater at my grandmother's house with cousins when we were all really young, and for the longest time none of us knew what the hell it was, or if we had hallucinated the show into existence. It was just as cheesy as Mother Goose Treasury, but I think your video has better production values!
