Happy Castle (Series) (1988-1989)

Long ago, in the magic forest of Be'twixt was the home of the Happy Castle, a wondrous place of beauty, friendship and laughter. But then, the evil Gloomella took over the Happy Castle and spread her gloom to all who lived there. However, the forest creatures of Be'twixt who had not fallen under Gloomella's spell turned to the all-seeing, all-knowing Well of What to find out how to rid the forest of Gloomella. A young girl appeared before Jimmy the Rabbit and Marcus the Lion and they called the girl, Hope. When things seemed the darkest, Hope's song book would fall open and she would sing. Happy Castle incorporated costumed people, puppets, and special effects.

Am I glad I found this site! I had been searching the web for something on "Happy Castle"- I was beginning to think I had made it all up! I sure wish they would put this show back on TV or on DVD for kids today of any age to indulge nostalgia or to enjoy for the first time.
What ever happened to the Happy Castle? I used to come home and watch it with my kids then after a while trhe show just disappeared...I am currently trying to track the show down on the net but i am unable to find it any where. I just keep running into reviews like this ... it gets frustrating with the kids asking - have you found it yet? Hmm ...
