Did You Know?
During the making of this movie, when composer Ken Darby
presented the music for the "Johnny Appleseed" segment to Walt Disney
, Walt scorned the music, as sounding "like New Deal music," to which an enraged Darby shouted back, "THAT is just a cross-section of one man's opinion!" Darby would not be at the studio much longer after that. See more

Master of Ceremonies
The intoxicating rhythm of the samba. A talented miss serves a musical cocktail with a true Latin American fling. So if three boisterous birds of a feather fall under the influence of this torrid tropical tempo, don't blame them, blame it on the rhythm of the samba.
Blame It on the Samba
