Did You Know?

The song "In The Big Rock Candy Mountain" was written near the end of the 1800s and was an ironic look at what everyone, but especially hobos, were searching for. It was "cleaned up" for this cartoon since the original mentions "cigarette trees" and streams of alcohol trickling through the rocks.See more »
Child:What came first, Mr. Kluger: the chicken or the egg?
S.D. Kluger:Girls, if you please.
Chicken #1:Really? What a question to ask us!
Chicken #2:I mean, did you ever!
Chicken #3:Let's tell it like it was, girls.
Chicken #1, Chicken #2, Chicken #3:[singing] What came first, / The chicken or the egg? / What a silly riddle! / Just like asking who came first: / The pussycat or the fiddle.
Chicken #2:The chicken was first, that we can prove / With a little Bible lesson: / When Noah took the animals on the ark, / That sure fixed the progression!
Chicken #1, Chicken #2, Chicken #3:How 'bout what came first, / The chicken or the egg? / What's there to agree on? / Just like asking who came first: / The fountain or Ponce de León.
Chicken #2:There was no egg aboard that ark, / Just a Mr. and Mrs. Chicken! / When the water dried out, they hatched an egg, / That should make the plot unthicken.

Fred Astaire returns to narrate, 27 April 2002
Author: apfortony from Beaufort, NC

If your kids want to see an Easter special, Here comes Peter Cottontail is better. But this Easter special from the late 1970s isn't too bad. Songs and score are harmless and the villain, an ornery bear, won't scare younger kids. The winter warlock from Santa Claus is coming to Town is very scary in comparison. Having seen this show and Peter Cottontail when they first aired, I saw them both again this past Easter. I didn't remember any details from this one even though it was released six years after Peter C.
