OH MY GOD I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THESE
WHAT ARE THESE WHY WERE THEY NOT A PART OF MY CHILDHOOD
aw, robinita hood. love that the voice actors are POC too. these make me so happy, wow!
I have seen 3/4ths of these. Dear white people, I submit to you: You have NO idea how HAPPY I’d get when these came on t.v. How OVERJOYED I was to see people, even cartoons, that looked LIKE ME. Representing stories I’d grown up with, where I got to be the princess. Where brown and black people were happy. Where brown and black people overcame to triumph. Color, to children of color, DOES matter. The success and impact of these episodes from HBO show that. Fairy tales for EVERY child MATTERS.
I forced my mom to record these on vhs whenever they came on!
