More Storyland, 1957

Here's the second part of our look at Storyland, in The Granite State (aka New Hampshire). See part one here.

Everyone knows the story of Jack and the Beanstalk; and here you can see Jack himself, armed with a hatchet that he used to chop down that beanstalk. The little girl is standing on the corpse of the fallen giant; but just what part of his anatomy that is, well... I'm not sure I want to know.

That sure is a crooked house. I've lived in worse! The crookedness is accentuated by the crazy paint scheme.

There's Miss Muffet, sitting on a tuffet (whatever the hell that is). Somehow she did not notice the huge spider, dripping venom and covered in thousands of tiny pale (but equally deadly) babies. Today is a good day to die, Miss Muffet.

Hysterical as usual, Major! Thanks for the laugh before bed.

I know you said Storyland is still around today, but does anyone know if any of these scenes still exist?

You may not want to know - but she does. She does.

But why Daddy wants a pic of her at every single possible scene is - well, it tries one's tolerance, but she's humoring the dear.

It appears that the little girl is standing on a giant ass (or should I say giant's ass). That's arse to you Brits in the crowd.

TokyoMagic!, it looks like there are some scenes that still exist in an updated form... if you go to, you'll see a much cuter Humpty Dumpty, and another Miss Muffet scene).

Chiana, maybe it was mom doing the picture-taking!

Anonymous, that might be an arse, or it might be something else. Let's just change the subject!

"Today is a good day to die, Miss Muffet" is a classic line. I'll never hear that rhyme again without it coming to mind. Well done!
