Faerie Tale Theatre: “The Tale of the Frog Prince” (1982)

The first episode of Shelley Duvall’s beloved children’s show establishes the overall aesthetic and humor that would follow with the subsequent episodes, and, in the process, make a vivid impression on a generation of young children growing up in the 1980s. Here, Robin Williams and Teri Garr (not to mention a pre-“Seinfeld” Michael Richards) seem to be having the time of their lives acting out the titular fairy tale, and the whole episode is a pleasure to re-visit after so many years.
