Read, Write, and Draw

Vincent Price did several projects with the Walt Disney Company during the 1980s. Do you remember a 4-minute series called Read, Write, and Draw that aired on the Disney Channel during the late 80's?

If you don't, here's what D23: The Official Disney Fan Club has to say about it:

"Beginning in January 1987, Disney Channel asked kids 12 and under to send in endings to short stories that were published in the Disney Channel Magazine. Within a few months, short videos were made of Vincent Price reading the children’s submissions, and these aired at various times during the week until the fall of 1988."

Can you imagine having your child's story read by Vincent Price?  At any rate, it was a lot of fun seeing this softer side of the actor in his later years.

Here's one of the segments.
