Faerie Tale Theatre is a live-action children’s television anthology series retelling popular fairy tales.

The series was followed by another, shorter series called Tall Tales & Legends which followed the same format as Faerie Tale Theatre and focused on classic American folk tales. Both series feature well known actors and directors, and were inspired by the children’s television series Shirley Temple’s Storybook.

It later aired as edited re-runs on the Disney Channel as well as in syndication on various television stations, including PBS and BookTelevision.
