Lollipop Opera by Don Freeman


Recently I hosted (along with Ella of MyMcBooks) a Children's Book Giveaway Event and the last day I featured Don Freeman's Beady Bear. I was lucky enough to see one of the original manuscripts (via email) in the rough draft of Beady Bear's Pillow which has not been published yet ~ I shared my review here.

Roy (Don's son) sent me a link to a short film by Don Freeman called "Lollipop Opera". I don't have a soundcard on my computer so I was only able to watch the film (it was great) but couldn't listen to it. I thought you might enjoy it! The soundtrack to the film is based on Rossini's "Barber of Seville" and subject to Don's book: "Mop Top".

This film received the 1971 award from the Council on Non-Theatrical Events for "it's excellence to represent the United States of American in international motion picture events abroad."



  1. Hi Tina! Thanks for posting this - and that about the award "to represent...abroad." I never knew about that, great to know! I hope your readers enjoy this as much as I do! And I hope you get to hear it with the music one day...

    1. I will but it will probably be about a year - I only make it home about that often. =D LOL

      Thanks! Tina

  2. How fun! This was great with the sound
