The Magic Basket

Show Summary

Welcome to The Magic Basket guide at TV.com.

THE MAGIC BASKET was a children's series created by Bill Hayden and produced by PBS for national airing. The seires involved (primarily) child actors presenting fractured fairy tales each week. Each episode/new fairy tale was presented by the friendly yet mysterious narrator who would find the stories in her magic basket.

If you happen to have been involved with the series or were a fan who saved episodes on an early tape format, please contact enchantedheartprods@lycos.com with more information about the series. Currently, PBS and its affiliates are indicating that they destroyed all episodes a few years ago. Yet, with Mr. Hayden's unbridled enthusiasm to spur us on, we believe that someone, somewhere has more information about THE MAGIC BASKET to share.

    To be honest, I would have preferred to spend my time elsewhere than finish watching this. However, I kept thinking that there is great potential behind this and I was half right. There was potential to say the least but this potential was poorly exploited leaving a show that is half decent. Nonetheless, you really have to see SHOW to get what I'm talking about.
