It's a great, big universe...and we're all really puny!



This song by the Animaniacs is sarcastic, but it almost would fit right in at Tomorrowland. It is pretty catchy, but I do not get the joke about Mickey Rooney.

Is it me...or does this song sound just a little like the Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow song from the Carousel of Progress?

This is my first attempt at embedding video, so let us see how it works.

What a fun little song. And an awesome learning tool. You know, when I was in 2nd grade, we learned these dinosaur songs. I still remember them. So if I didn't know what a stegosaurus looks like, I could describe it for you. All from a little ditty I learned 23 years ago. Music is such an awesome tool!

That is what I found so amusing about this video and why I posted it.

The Animaniacs were very rowdy for a kid's cartoon. Some of the sarcasm and jokes were especially nasty.

But this cartoon, while keeping the spirit of the Animaniacs, does express a sense of wonder through all the three stooges-esque humor.

Like I said, you could almost build a Disneyland ride around it.

Almost! :)
