Well finally (finally!) The Magic Garden has been re-released by Koch Records as a 10 episode, 2-disc DVD set (with a CD too) called Carole and Paula in the Magic Garden, and I’m thrilled to say it’s held up pretty well in the past 30-something years. Oh sure, Carole and Paula’s Watergate-era haircuts are a bit dated, but the narratives, the acoustic songs, the puppets (Sherlock! Flapper!) and the lessons taught are as relevant as ever.
If this was part of your own childhood you’ll want to grab a copy pronto. Even if it wasn’t, something tells me you’ll want it to be part of your kids’ lives. –Liz
