The Enchanted World of Danny Kaye: The Emperor's New Clothes


Comments by: Rating: 6 out of 10 stars Posted: March 09, 2002
I Enjoyed this combination live action and puppet kids musical fantasy tv special.When it first aired on The ABC TV Network back in the winter of 1972.Mr.Kaye was wondeful as the host/narrator of the opening and closing segments.He was even more enchanting as the voice of one of the swindlers.Who along with "Mufti"(played by one of my favorite performers:Allen Swift)posed as two great tailors.Who tricked "The Empoer of Bibentucker"(Cy Richard)into giving them a fortune to create a new suit of clothes.Which they never really create for him anyway.The film's real villian is "Jasper The Jester"(plyaed by the late Bob McFadden)."Jasper"wants to get rid of "The Emporer"and take over his relm at all costs.He forces the two conmen to give him the proceeds from the earnings from their scam.Or else! But In the end."Jasper"is exposed for the villian that he really is.And he is sent to prison.The two con men are also exposed.But because they help to expose "Jasper".The Emporer drops the charges against them and they are given their freedom.This show was to be the first of a minni series of Danny Kaye live action/puppet tv specials.For Whatever the reason? The minni series never came to fruition.Hence This special is the only one that was created produced and aired on ABC TV.It's too bad that Mr.Kaye was never able to collaborate with Messers:Rankin & Bass on another kids tv special of this type.Oh They did work on "Here's Comes Peter Cottontail" for ABC TV.But It would have been nice if they did work on another live action/puppet musical fantasy tv special or movie.Can You imagine Danny Kayeas one of the Bremmen Musicians or as "The Wizard Of OZ!".I Sure can!
