Christmas Season Children's fantasy serial (late 1930s)

Cinnamon BearThis wonderful Christmas holiday fantasy adventure serial was created and written by Glanville Heisch for children of all ages. It all happens to twins Judy and Jimmy before Christmas. Something has taken the "Silver Star" for their Christmas tree. The very Irish teddy bear, Paddy O'Cinnamon by name, comes to their aid and tells them that the Crazy Quilt Dragon has taken the star to Maybeland. So the three venture off to find their "Silver Star." The fifteen-minute episodes were first broadcast from the end of November right up 'till Christmas, and can still be enjoyed that way by the entire family.

There are many fantasy characters in Maybeland, including a dragon, a giant, a witch, a whale, a queen, a rhyming rabbit, a magician, cowboys and indians, even pirates! Most of the characters are quite sophisticated, and are a listening joy for adults as well as children. Many well-known radio actors took the parts, including Howard McNear (Speed Gibson, Gunsmoke) and Gale Gordon (The Great Gildersleeve, Our Miss Brooks.) The central characters Judy was played beautifully by Barbara Jean Wong, and strangely, to this day, the boy who played Jimmy has not been identified, even by The Cinnamon Brigade, a group of loyal fans of this famous show.

As mentioned, the Cinnamon Bear is similar in many ways to The Wizard of Oz movie, and was released the same year. It certain has the polish and dramatic appeal of the Wizard of Oz movie, and that's high praise indeed. Also, one is reminded in listening to the Cinnamon Bear of the great "Alice in Wonderland" and "Pinocchio" in the animated film versions. The Cinnamon Bear has a first-class

All considered, Cinnamon Bear is definitely a radio Christmas classic, and a superb example of radio's special dramatic art ability - to take the perfectly fantastic, and make it perfectly real in the imaginations of listeners of all ages.
