I remember reading the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale when I was a kid. Hansel and Gretel has been a long standing fairy tale that many of us remember and have read to our kids. I had forgotten about Faery Tale Theater making many of the fairy tales I grew up with into a kid’s television show in the 1980’s.
