Synopsis by Sally Barber
Some of the most beloved children's stories come to life in Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories. The series presents animated versions of popular tales featuring the voice talent of equally popular stars from the stage, movies and television. Actor, writer and comedian Steve Martin lends his talent to Vol. 7: Tugford Wants to be Bad. In this charming tale, Tugford the mouse longs to be like the bad guys in his favorite movies. When his outlaw escapade backfires, Tugford nearly misses his own birthday party. Little Penguin's Tale is narrated by Candice Bergen, best known for her role as the hard-driving journalist in television's Murphy Brown. Bergen relates the story of the penguin's near encounter with disaster. Videos in the series include Little Toot and the Loch Ness Monster, There's a Nightmare in my Closet and others.
