What ever happened to...

Does anyone else remember these?










I remember they use to be on TV when I was very young. I still remember all the words and often find myself accidentally singing them. It's strange the the things you remember most.

Anyway, I finally got the idea to look them up on YouTube and there they were, just as I remembered them. They make me smile.

There are treasures to be found in the NFB archives! I hadn't seen these, but I remember seeing similar animated movies on TV as a kid too; I guess CBC and Radio-Canada weren't showing exactly the same ones.
The animated movies I remember most fondly are those by Frédéric Back, particularly "Crac!", "The Man Who Planted Trees", and "The Mighty River" (though I always think of them as produced by the NFB, they were actually produced by the CBC). They are well worth watching if you haven't yet had the chance to do so. I'm sure you'd love those films.
