    I'm a little surprised that no one took any notice of this. Here's some news courtesy of TV Shows on DVD, from November.

    Faerie Tale Theatre-The Complete Collection

    Good news for fans who have been waiting for an affordable alternative to the single releases.

    Your link does not work for me and I can't find anything about Faerie Tale Theatre on TV Shows on DVD. Could you give me a better link?

    Great! Ordered it. The listing does say December 28, but my delivery date is estimated to be sometime in February. Don't know which is correct or why the discrepency, but knowing that this'll be released soon is enough for me.

    Noone should have gotten the set so far; it hasn't shipped yet.

    There have been production delays at the factory, and the were hoping to get it shipped the first week in February (this week), but since the guys at Starmaker II haven't contacted me to say it's shipped, I assume they're still waiting for Technicolor to get these produced and assembled.

    No idea why Amazon shows that old December date; it was changed several times, starting before that particular date arrived.

    Well! My Amazon order for this set is in the preparation stage. So I guess it's finally available.

    Has anyone experienced any glitches with this set? 15 minutes into the Rapunzel episode on disc 1, side 1 is a nasty stretch of freezing, skipping, and breaking up of the image and audio. It goes on for about 5 minutes. There are no blemishes or dust on the disc at all.

    If no one else reports a similar problem, I'll have ask Amazon for an exchange.

    So this set doesn't include the tea party episode with Shelley Duvall and Jean Stapleton?

    Other than this omission, which I don't believe is an omission, I believe the set is complete.

    I wanted to pick this set up for my kids. It's a great series, where else can you find fairy tales for kids featuring such diverse performers as Robin Williams, Teri Garr, Christopher Reeve, Christopher Lee, Carole King, Mick Jagger and Frank Zappa? I checked Amazon, looks like this series has been released twice as a collection in 2005 and 2006, and now it's already out of print? Does anybody know if there's any chance of it coming back to DVD? Thanks, Joe Kelly

    I hope so. I read that an episode or two was edited.

    FYI, Faerie Tale Theatre was released again on DVD a few months ago, retailing for $100 bucks. Just noticed on Amazon it's on sale for $52 (That's about 2 bucks per episode). Great gift for kids or anybody who remembers seeing these shows from the 80's. Where else can you see Mick Jagger playing the Emperor in Hans Christian Anderson's "The Nightingale" or Carole King playing Goldilock's mother?
