Little Orley may be the primary character inside a past due-’40s/early-’50s children’s series by musician and narrator Lumpy Brannum, who later on played Mr. Green Denims on Captain Kangaroo. Getting started as a every week brief feature on the air display led by Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians (Brannum is at the music group), the tiny Orley stories continued to become issued on many 78s (mainly on Decca). In the tales, a young son named Small Orley offers innocent adventures, generally in the wild, with other personas which range from a snowman to performing insects, an upright bass (or, “bull fiddle”) to a pancake. With associated music and sound files supplied by Fred Waring and His Pennsylvanians, Brannum narrates the brief tales, wrapping each up with just a little moral and “That’s all.” THE TINY Orley recordings had been reissued for a short amount of time in the ’60s, but following this, were basically forgotten for a number of decades. Finally, the tiny Orley tales resurfaced when an Orley collector (and plaything company owner) started reissuing the tales on Compact disc in 1999.
