Paul Bunyan (Rabbit Ears American Heroes & Legends). Guitarist Leo Kottke scored the soundtrack, and his music infuses just the right stride and swagger to the tale. In 1991 the audio was honored with a Grammy nomination in the category of best recording for children.

Rick Meyerowitz gives flesh and bone to all the players in his illustrations, and on the accompanying cassette, Jonathan Winters gives them souls and voices. Brian Gleeson’s writing is just as hilarious and brilliant in this book as it was in Pecos Bill as Paul Bunyan is portrayed as an optimistic and inventive character who always has a solution to every problem that he comes against.

by Rick Meyerowitz (Illustrator) and Brian Gleeson. This version of some of the tales about Paul Bunyan is the finest I've heard. Jonathan Winters is a master at this type of story telling and he is in peak form here. Our 8-year old boy and 5-year old girl were enthralled with this story and frequently asked us to rewind the tape so they could hear the parts missed while laughing.

Paul Bunyan knew darned well that he was the best lumberjack ever to stomp through the great North American forests, but it wasn't something to brag about: it was just a fact.

Rick Meyerowitz grew up in The Bronx. Although Ogden Nash famously wrote, The Bronx? No thonx! it was a great and vibrant place to survive a childhood. Rick adapted and illustrated two Rabbit Ears Videos for children: Paul Bunyan, narrated by Jonathan Winters, and Rip Van Winkle, narrated by Angelica Huston. Simon and Schuster has published book versions. Rick and his friend Maira Kalman created the most talked-about New Yorker cover of recent years, New Yorkistan. It appeared on December 10, 2001. Later that week, the New York Times wrote: When their cover came out, a dark cloud seemed to lift.

Written by Brian Gleeson, Audiobook narrated by Jonathan Winters. Big as a mountain and stronger than a grizzly bear, Paul Bunyan was the greatest lumberjack ever to swagger through the North American forests. All the larger-than-life characters in Paul's supporting cast are here, including Babe the Blue Ox, eating her ton of grain a day, and Hotbiscuit Sally, with her acre-and-a-half griddle.

Rabbit Ears: Paul Bunyan (1990). Video Animation, Short, Family. Did You Know? Storyline. It was the Winter of the Blue Snow when mighty PAUL BUNYAN first showed up at the logging camp. In next to no time, this giant of a man had set about revolutionizing the whole timber business. This old American tall tale has been given a lively presentation by the Rabbit Ears folks. A somewhat surprising, but not inappropriate, environmental deference has been added to the conclusion.

Recounts the legends of the giant logger and his big blue ox Babe

One of the greatest tall tales of all time, wonderfully told and awesomely illustrated, also with a great soundtrack

I remember reading "Paul Bunyan" stories in grade school. I find this video rendition a bit less charming than other Rabbit Ears stories, but I have to admit that it's very well done. One of the things that the Rabbit Ears series does very well is to match the actor/reader to the story, and Jonathon Winters--who is himself rather larger than life--is certainly the perfect choice to narrate the stories of Paul Bunyan and his giant blue ox, Babe.
What's particularly amusing is the political correctness of this video. After all, the Paul Bunyan stories are really meant to glorify the clear cutting of forests and to promote the idea that the frontier is something to be tamed and used by white settlers. (One of the stories concerns Teddy Roosevelt ordering Buyan to clear the Dakota territory for white settlers.) Rabbit Ears was clearly uneasy with the politics of these stories, and the ending has Paul Bunyan feeling sorry for his deeds and planting new forests. This is a nice environmental message for children, but it distorts what loggers actually did--rather like Disney's Pocohontas ending with the English and the Indians deciding to live together in peace and mutual understanding. Nice sentiment, but that's not quite what happened.
Still--a triumph of storytelling if not of history.

What a great folk story. Lots of learning for the kids with this book. Wonderful pictures too. This is one of those stories that all kids should grow-up with.

What happened to just looking at history for what it was? This book ends with Paul feeling sorry for cutting down all those trees and going off to plant new ones. How very PC. While now we know that maybe it wasn't such a great idea to clear cut and rape the land, at the time these legends emerged it was seen as a sign of progress. I would have much preferred simply enjoying the rough and ready, log chopping, flannel covered, pancake eating fun. That era is gone forever, and books like this detract from it rather than pay tribute to the hard work and ingenuity required to build our nation. Add an addendum if you must at the end of story, explaining how and when the logging was done and how we now do things differently, but don't change the original story.

I also felt the text itself was somewhat patronizing with its contrived language and overuse of hyperbole.
