Shirley Temple's Storybook

In 1958-61, Shirley Temple made a brief return to show business with a one-hour children's television series. Shirley Temple's Storybook premiered on NBC January 12, 1958 and moved to ABC in 1959, when it last aired on December 1 of that year. On September 11, 1960 it returned to NBC under the title The Shirley Temple Show and last aired September 10, 1961 , with much the same format that it had featured under its previous title. The show featured adaptations of fairy tales and other family oriented stories performed by well-known actors. Shirley Temple starred as the Hostess and occasional narrator/actress. The show went off the air when Walt Disney moved his television series from ABC to NBC in September 1961.

One of its most notable episodes was an adaptation of L. Frank Baum's The Land of Oz, starring Ms. Temple as Tip and Ozma, Sterling Holloway as Jack Pumpkinhead, Ben Blue as the Scarecrow, Gil Lamb as the Tin Woodman, and Agnes Moorehead as Mombi. Presented nine months after what was only the second telecast of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, the show was very likely motivated by the recent great success of the MGM classic on television.

Dubbed in Spanish. In Latinamerica known as "Los Cuetos de Hadas de Shirley Temple"
