Current Rabbit Ears stories?

Posted by Rabbitearsblog on September 2, 2009 at 2:01 PM

I have just visited the Rabbit Ears website and I saw a couple of Rabbit Ears stories that I have never seen before like "Tom Thumb" and "The Tale of Two Bad Mice."  If anyone of you have seen any new Rabbit Ears stories, please post up on this blog!

john clesse ad libed the last lines. he wasn't sure if they really belonged. I did.
the voices John chose are homages to his monty python pals.
all the elements work, great illustration and extraordinary elvis Costello soundtrack, a pretty darn good program - i think it is in the first tier of rabbit eras stories

I haven't seen Tom Thumb yet. The most current Rabbit Ears story that I have seen was "The Firebird" and that one was probably made in the 90s somewhere. So, when was Tom Thumb made?

Own an original copy of the Tale of Peter Rabbit/Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher/Tale of Two Bad Mice released on the Windham Hill labe (WD-0708, 1988)l. Have spent years collecting original CD releases of the Rabbit Ears series. Alas, some have never been located (except on iTunes). Tom Thumb is one I have never been able to locate.

yeah, I have noticed that Tom Thumb was really hard to get on CD and I haven't even seen this story yet! So, what's your favorite Rabbit Ears stories?

The new version of the classic children?s story, ?Tom Thumb,? told by John Cleese with original music by Elvis Costello, will have its world premiere Sunday, March 20 during the International Family Film Festival at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. This is the first new Rabbit Ears title released in more than a decade. It should be available shortly as a DVD from the rabbit ears website www.rabbitears.com

Wow!! That's great Deb!! I have a feeling that everyone will start to notice this fantastic series once Tom Thumb goes over in Hollywood! Thanks for this information and thanks for joining this site! I can't wait to hear about your opinions on various Rabbit Ears stories!

I never saw a Tom Thumb CD release. But in the case of "The Firebird" and "Five Chinese Brothers" there were CD`s
announced in 1995, but I don`t know if they really were issued. To my disappointment on "The Firebird" cassette was no
music-only tracks on the B-side (on "The White Cat" cassette issue from the same time is a musical suite on the B-side) . I am also collecting the Rabbit Ears CD`s for many years and it is a pity, that the musical suites were omitted on the new CD releases. I also search a CD edition of "The talking eggs" but I don`t know if there was a CD release with the music-only tracks. If anyone knows more about this, please let me know.

I'm currently buying the audio CDs of the Rabbit Ears stories, but I sort of wish that they provided a book with the CDs also since during the time when Rabbit Ears first came out, I used to listen to the stories on cassette tapes and the cassette tapes would have the books with the cassettes and I really enjoyed that because I was able to enjoy the illustrations of the book while following the story on the cassette. I also wanted a musical interlude with the new CDs since I loved most of the musical numbers on the Rabbit Ears cassettes at the time.
