I'm trying to identify an 80's -early 90's children's show I had on VHS.
The things I remember about this show are:
Mirror - A magic mirror was an element to the story. Someone would "find" the mirror (I remember a man rowing in a pond and finding it in the reeds). Then they set the scene to see the story in the mirror.
Animated scenes - I can only recall 2 of these "mirror stories" Both felt like they had non-English bases. In one people were dancing around a fire on the beach. The story had a sad tone. In another black shadow creatures called hobbyharves(?) tip toes around. They stole children and the story had a dark/scary feel.
I was born in '85 and probably watched in about 88-93. Did you watch this or know this? Please let me know!
