:lol: That's a pretty good one. I had an uncle who really was that superstitious. He used to go into conniptions if anyone put a hat on the bed.

Wow! It's interesting to hear about folk superstitions. Some weird ones out there!

If Uncle Max was driving and saw a black cat, he would slam on brakes, jerk the car off the road, then take off his hat and spit in it. If he didn't have a hat on, he would spit in his hand and rub it through his hair. His brother was the same. :D

Wrong time of the year...but this cartoon just came to mind. This is a really nice one, beautiful story and animation. They don't make 'em like this anymore...

I enjoyed that! I had never seen it before. I love all the colors that were in it. That was a beautiful cartoon. I also like it when there are songs in cartoons. The songs are a forgotten type of media.

Glad you liked it! :D It's an old favorite of mine.

Funny, I had never really thought about that until you mentioned it. That's so true—you hardly ever see one without it—and is a lot of what makes those cartoons special. It is a shame that this is a forgotten thing. And can you believe that audiences used to sing together in theatres as they followed the bouncing ball on the screen? Can you imagine that now?? :shock:

I can't, although I would have loved it as a kid. They did they with Disney tapes in the 90s. I had a few sing-along tapes that I loved.
