Cartoon Serials Featured on Kukla, Fran & Ollie

I am looking for information on 2 cartoon serials featured on Kukla, Fran & Ollie. I believe the host at that time was Frazier Thomas instead of Fran. The cartoon features were about 1) The Fire Bird and another was about 2) The Snow Queen. I remember them as being beautifully animated. Are these features available for purchase? Any information please email me at
Thank you.

If Frazier Thomas was the host, the show was not KFO - it was Garfield Goose.

Here's info on The Snow Queen:

It's available on DVD:

Garfield Goose also featured an animated version of The Firebird:

Here's a comment from another board:

"I remember watching Garfield Goose in the late 60s. My favorite part of the show (other than the puppets) were the multi-part stories; one series I never did see in its entirety was 'The Firebird'. This was an animated version of an old Russian fairy tale, and I have never been able to find any reference to it on the Web. let alone discover if it's ever been available on video."
