The adventures of a curious little boy are brought to life in this inspired series based on the classic book by Crockett Johnson. Each night when Harold is tucked in at bedtime, he finds himself too restless to sleep. Eager to explore the world beyond his bedroom, Harold grabs a purple crayon and begins to draw. Each stroke seems to unleash his vivid imagination as his fantasy world comes to life. Harold often draws his stuffed dog Lilac into his adventures, and together they explore Harold's magical world while making new friends and overcoming obstacles along the way. Van Dyke Parks' music is the heart and soul of the series: Since Harold rarely speaks, the songs often reflect his emotions. The Narrator (voice of Sharon Stone) is a warm, maternal presence who offers a window into Harold's thoughts.
