Fairies

The Blue Fairy - Dainty fairy host of the Chicago based children's series THE BLUE FAIRY broadcast Monday nights on independent station WGN-TV in the late 1950s.

Brigid Mary Bazlen as THE BLUE FAIRY

The Blue Fairy (played by 14-year-old Brigid Mary Bazlen) lived in the Blue Forest. Seated on a mushroom, the elfin-winged fairy visited with such creatures as Tugnacious R. Jones, Myrtle Flower, and an old nasal-voiced wizard. The fanciful forest puppets were designed by George Nelle and writer-director Don Kane.

The program was recognized as the top children's program in 1958 and was nominated for a Peabody Award in 1959.

TRIVIA NOTE: In children's literature the Blue Fairy changed the wooden puppet Pinocchio into a real live boy in the 1883 story "The Adventures of Pinocchio" written by Carlo Collodi.
