Synopsis by Hal Erickson

C. S. Lewis' beloved children's story The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was brought to the small screen in this animated adaptation. Four children are transported to the mythical land of Narnia by way of a magic wardrobe (or clothes closet, if you prefer). Here they confront a wicked witch who has enveloped Narnia in the throes of winter. The kids must fulfill their mission of restoring the rightful king, a friendly lion, to the throne. Originally telecast in two parts on April 1 and 2, 1979, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was co-produced by Bill Melendez Productions, the Children's Television Workshop, the Episcopal Radio-TV Foundation, TV Cartoons and Pegbar Productions.
