English version used to be available on VHS, one episode per tape. I saw copies on Amazon.com a few years ago, but only available through marketplace sellers.

I remember this series!! It was my favourite of those classical book cartoons that they used to air. Also loved Tom Sayer's cartoon.
I wish it was available on DVD. I can only find it in German, Japanese, and Indian. I like the English version-- I wish someone would release it.
Thanks for mentioning. It brings back good memories.
