Why don't they make them like this anymore?

My work week got mixed up a bit when I was pulled offsite to work on something that wasn't what I thought I was going to be working on this week.

Thus the lack of time.

Instead of a long rambly post, enjoy this 1956 Disney classic. I *LOVE* this cartoon. Chad is going to scoff when he reads that, because this song was on the sing-a-long channel ad nauseum when we were in Disney last summer, and I thought I would go crazy if I heard it one more time. But the kids borrowed a DVD of Disney shorts from the library over the weekend, and it included this little gem. I must have watched it twenty times. I love the mod 50s-era house, the gratuitous use of Indians as bad guys, the girl who must be saved, the works. And now I think the song is incredibly catchy and sweet. I went so far as to search Art.com for a still, but no such luck. Guess I'll have to stay glued to YouTube for the time being.

(I need to catch a video of Mal singing this before she moves onto something else!)

Rub it in Cook...we will never go to Disney because we spent all the vacation money so that Evie dosen't look like Austin Powers when she grows up.
