Status Partially Found

Disney's 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 to showcase higher-quality animation made for the E/I requirement, being an early example of a show made to fulfill 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.

As of 2017, 15 out of 65 episodes have resurfaced through the web Archive.

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.

I used to have some DVDs of a few TV recordings of the show as a kid, if it hasn't been thrown out then it's probably in the attic

I searched for this on Amazon, found it in a five pack of VHS tapes, but it is listed as unavailable. I can't help but wonder why. I also wonder if the five pack had episodes on other tapes included. Here's the link to the item. I'll keep looking into this. https://www....+music+belle

I have found three different VHS tapes on Amazon with episodes of this series included. Which episodes are on these tapes, are of course not listed on the site. There is always the possibility that these tapes have new unknown episodes on them, however, it is just that, a possibility. Some episodes described in reviews include her reading the three little pigs, Hansel and Gretel, The Wise Old Hen, an episode where Maurice comes to bake bread, one where Gaston shows up, and one where they talk about cars. All of the reviews on one of them range from 1999-2004, so I assume most don't know of the tape's availability. I looked into seeing if I could find Lynsey now, but she seems to have fallen into complete obscurity. No Facebook profiles with the name matched what is known about her. Anyways, the VHS tapes that I found to have episodes of the series on it are called Belle's Tales of Friendship, Disney Princess Collection: Beauty and the World of Music, and Disney Princess Collection: Chapters of Enchantment. All 3 are available, so maybe someone could purchase one or all of them and see what episodes are on there? I would if I wasn't 15 and had the money to. I have a good VHS player at my house and I want to use it to find lost media, but I can't it seems. I may ask for these for Christmas, will post any updates should they come around.
