One cassette / 1 hour 8 mins.

Take one young boy, his father and their bedtime ritual--a story.  Five-year-old Michael has somehow managed it so that he gets to order up the basic ingredients of each night's story, whereupon Dad spins the tale and adds the embellishments.  The only thing is, Michael doles out the same essential ingredients each time:  a foppish wolf named Waldo and a hen named Rainbow.  As bedtimes go by, the stories become more and more outlandish.  Not only that, they spread out into the daytime, too!  So what used to be bedtime ritual is now an anytime-he-can-get-his-Dad-to-squeeze-in-an-eipsode arrangement.  And as the delightfully absurd story unfolds (and unfolds even more) we can't help smiling while whitnessing the eternal battle between good and evil as orchestrated by a five-year-old boy.  It's no wonder that this endearingly funny and down-to-earth class
