a special christmas treat!

Merry Christmas to all those of the Saturday Morning Generation (and everyone else, no doubt)!

For our final installment of Christmas offerings, Mr. Miller has wrapped up a real neat treat for all you PopCereal kids to go silly over.


If there is one thing that you ever needed to know, or cared to know, about Mr. Miller, it's that he absolutely loves Charles Dickens story "A Christmas Carol." Ever since he can remember, the 1951 Alastair Sim version of the story was a regular event at the Mr. Miller household. The local PBS station would run the holiday movie twice a year, with the first airing on Christmas Eve, and the second on Christmas day afternoon.


Another little secret about Mr. Miller is that he's also fond of filmstrips.


What we have here for your final PopCereal Christmas present is a recording of a filmstrip version of the great Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, produced by the Listening Library, Inc, out of Greenwich, Connecticut. They've been providing schools and other organizations with filmstrips, audio books and other audio-visual goodies for decades now, and it's always a happy day when we find one of their gems.

So, for your listening and viewing pleasure, PopCereal presents the filmstrip version of Dickens A Christmas Carol (catalog #SFX5), which includes a pdf file of the accompanying guide booklet.

So, go download it and enjoy your holidays!!

Oh... and please be patient with the download. After all it's a double length filmstrip with audio read along, running nearly 40 minutes, so it'll take several minutes of your time to obtain it. We promise you -- it's weel worth the wait.

Have a merry!!
Mr. Miller

thanks, can't wait to hear this.
I loved filmstrips too as a kid.
Nothing better than being in school and getting to watch a filmstrip.
Heck, it sure beat doing class work.
My favorite, which I'd love to see again someday, is the filmstrip of The Nutcracker, circa 1977.
