Mother Goose: Rock 'n' Rhyme (also known as Shelley Duvall's Mother Goose: Rock 'n' Rhyme or Shelley Duvall's Rock in Rhymeland) is a 1990 American musical television film that aired on the Disney Channel starring Shelley Duvall as Little Bo Peep and Dan Gilroy as Gordon Goose, the son of Mother Goose along with a star-studded supporting cast of various other actors and musicians portraying a wide range of characters, mostly of Mother Goose nursery rhyme fame. It was originally a Disney Channel Premiere Film that aired on May 19, 1990.
