Everything's bigger in (hat off, hand on heart) Texas!
3 November 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

I have a soft spot in my heart for what is a very average short in an average series because I'm from Texas originally. There are a few memorable bits and I will be mentioning a little detail, so there will be minor spoilers:

The typical puns as sight gags which are part and parcel of the Sing-a-Long series are here, ranging from the size of Texas to lots of jokes about cowboys and oil. The jokes are mostly visual, but there is some narration which is funny and there's a bit with Little Bo Peep (who sounds like an uncredited Mae Questal) with a Texas drawl.

There's a rodeo, of course, and jokes about the Cotton Bowl. The obvious gags are most of them up front and center.

The song is "Deep In the Heart of Texas" (complete with the obligatory cues for the four rhythmic hand claps where called for). The song portion features reasonably decent backgrounds.

As I said, this is an average short, but it's worth watching. Recommended.
