Disney's Sing Me a Story with Belle (Mostly lost Disney TV show from 1995-1999)


Portland-based actress Lynsey McLeod as the show's titular character.

Sing Me a Story with Belle is an American live-action series created by Patrick Davidson and Melissa Gould. The series features Belle from Beauty and the Beast, who runs the local village book & music shop. She is usually greeted by children who would like to hear a story. In a format similar to Shining Time Station, Belle (Lynsey McLeod), her puppet friends Harmony the Cat (Jeff Conover), Big Book (Jim Cummings), bookworms Lewis & Carroll (Jim Cummings & the late Christine Cavanaugh), and the villagers who visit the store interact with the children and teaches them life lessons, morals, and solutions by narrating stories, interpreted to the home viewer through animated shorts from the Disney archives paired with the show's original songs. The show was made in order to showcase higher-quality animation made for the E/I requirement, being an early example of a show made to fufill it, another example being The Fox Cubhouse, which is also lost. The series premiered in syndication on September 8, 1995. That same day, another Disney TV series based on The Lion King called Timon & Pumbaa also premiered. So far, only one episode has surfaced on YouTube for this series.

On Wikipedia, it says that this show got some episodes released on several VHS's and DVD's over the years, which means that Disney hasn't forgotten about it, and they still own the rights to the show. Maybe we could start by collecting the episodes released on home video, and then see if Disney is planning to release this series on ITunes or Amazon or what have you.

Well I can confirm that the one episode that we have on YouTube has been released on home media. I have it as a special feature on a re-release of Beauty and the Beast The Enchanted Christmas on a Region 4 DVD. The interesting thing is that this version was only released in late 2015 and the previously released Region 4 Special Edition of the movie did not included the Sing a Song with Belle special feature.

Disney will start selling Beauty and the Beast again this September, for its 25th anniversary. The sequels will undoubtedly come out again not long after, and they might or might not also come with episodes of this show.

You will need some kind of capture device?

OR depending on where you live you could see if someone locally has the ability to transfer them over for you.
