This item is a real survivor. It is rough around the edges, but bright and vibrant inside. It is Bugs Bunny in Storyland from the early 1950s. Inside are two long playing records of Mel Blanc doing all the voices of the stories. Elmer Fudd is the first narrator of his story when Bugs is in his garden stealing carrots. Bugs escapes to Storyland where he encounters Old King Cole, Mary Had a Little Lamb, little Boy Blue, Little Bo Peep, Beaky Buzzard as Somple Simon the Pie-Man, Daffy Duck as Duck Twacy the deteckative, Porky Pig & his nephew Cicero Pig, little Red Riding Hood & the Big Bad Wolf in Grandma's clothes and finally the Good Fairy. There are 19 story pages in the read-along-format and 20 color pages of characters. Illustrations by Robert McKimson and Richard Thomas. Most of the pages are in very good shape. One page has a two inch rip. The inside cover page is discolored and also has a rip. The Capitol Records were produced in Hollywood by Alan Livingston. Music by Billy May. The credentials are well marked: 1949 Warner Bros Cartoons, Inc. A film banner on the front cover is for Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. Capitol Record Reader; Printed in U.S.A. The records are marked: Unbreakable in Normal Use, Super Flex. All record labels are intact. The outside of this book / record set is only in fair condition. The tape binding is torn separating the record set from the story book. The corners and edges are soft with some paper loss. The records are over 60 years old and reflect those years of use and storage. I found this precious childhood memory in a tiny store in a tiny village in a rural Ohio county. My mission was to save it. I am hoping to find another person with the same mission. Bubble wrapped , boxed and shipped via media mail.
