Did You Know?
The segment "Trees" is largely a recitation of the poem "Trees" (1913) by Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918). It is the author's most popular poem, a lyric poem about the beauty of trees. Kilmer was considered a major poet of his era but died young, killed while serving in World War I. His literary output was consequently rather small. Much of his other work has been forgotten and his style of poetry largely fell out of a fashion by the 1920s. See more
[introduction to "Blame It On the Samba"
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.
In 1998 Disney changed the "Pecos Bill" segment. They cut a scene of Bill rolling a smoke and digitally removed all other shots of the offending cigarette hanging from his lips. The cigarette was edited out in each case resulting in the removal of almost the entire tornado sequence and some odd hand and mouth movements for Bill throughout. The UK DVD had these scenes uncut.
