Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince Pt 1


Oscar Wilde’s classic tale of The Happy Prince. Extremely difficult to find, very rarely repeated on TV and yet so wonderful – it’ll stay with you forever. For those of you who watched this in the 70s or early 80s who never dreamed of ever seeing this wonderful animation again – sit back and enjoy!
