Here's the rest of the unique Chad Valley slides from their 1962 "Kaleidoscope" set -- minus Oliver Twist, which apparently Kevin Law didn't have in his set (or at least didn't have it when I created the video).
Here's what Chad Valley had in their set:
K1 - KALEIDOSCOPE SLIDE 1
K2 - KALEIDOSCOPE SLIDE 2
K3 - KALEIDOSCOPE SLIDE 3
K4 - KALEIDOSCOPE SLIDE 4

35 - THE WIZARD OF OZ
36 - ROBIN HOOD MEETS LITTLE JOHN
37 - TOM SAWYER AND HUCK FINN
38 - WILLIAM TELL
39 - STOWAWAY IN SPACE
40 - AESOP'S LION AND THE MOUSE
42 - TREASURE ISLAND
43 - POPEYE "BIGTOP BULLS-EYE"
45 - LASSIE "DEADLY ATTACKER"
46 - POPEYE "DAY AT THE SEASHORE"
47 - WOODY WOODPECKER "GERONIMO"
48 - ROY ROGERS "TRIGGER'S CLOSE CALL"
49 - LASSIE BRINGS AN URGENT MESSAGE
50 - ROY ROGERS "HORSE THIEVES"
51 - ANDY PANDA
52 - SOOTY AND HIS BOAT
53 - THE LONE RANGER
54 - SOOTY & SWEEP AT THE FAIRGROUND

57 - SCOTT AND THE ANTARCTIC
58 - LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD
59 - SPEED RECORDS
60 - SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD
61 - GUY FAWKES
62 - NODDY AT THE SEASIDE
63 - ANDY PANDY AND THE DOVECOTE
64 - OLIVER TWIST
This set is really difficult to compare to Kenner's product. I'm guessing the Kaleido-Slides were the same, but where it gets weird is where things came from. They were also in a completely different set than the other slides that are the same! Here's the 1961 "Blue" set from Kenner:
1-Huckleberry Hound-The One That Got Away
2-Popeye-A Day at the Seashore
4-Three Stooges-Go To the Dogs
5-Rocky and Bullwinkle-A Ball for Boris
7-Mighty Mouse-Canaveral Capers
8-Classics-Peter Pan Foils Captain Hook
9-Casper the Friendly Ghost-He Who Laughs Last…
10-Heckle and Jeckle-Rough Stuff
11-Andy Panda-Balooney Business
12-Baby Huey-Wreckless Driver
13-Kenner Kids-The Haunted Mine
14-Roy Rogers-Trigger Has a Close Call
15-Captain Kangaroo-Bunny's Crazy Crop
16-Bozo-Bozo Booms a Bum
17-Classics-The Wizard of Oz
18-Classics-Robin Hood Meets Little John
19-Classics-Tom Sawyer & Huck Finn
21-N/A-Stowaway in Space
22-Aesop's Fable-The Lion and the Mouse
24-N/A-Union Drummer Boy
26-Popeye-Big Top Bullseye
28-Three Stooges-Where There's Smoke… There's Fire?
30-Rocky and Bullwinkle-Bully for Bullwinkle
31-Roy Rogers-Headache for the Horse Thieves
32-Bozo-Joy Ride for Jumbo
Obviously, some messing around was done! OK, so the Chad Valley set was missing the Huckleberry Hound, both Three Stooges, both Rocky and Bullwinkles, Lassie (the Chad Valley set has a different Lassie slide), Mighty Mouse, Peter Pan, Casper, Heckle and Jeckle, Andy Panda, Baby Huey, Kenner Kids, Captain Kangaroo, both Bozo the Clowns, and one of the Roy Rogers slides, plus the "Deadly Boomerang" story that I believe was really the first "Kenner Kids" slide.
A Fond Adieu...
