Music – 1953 – Disney Professor Owls Fun With Music – Scales + Arpeggios & Why Should We Worry

Disney Sing-Along Songs was a series of videos on VHS, betamaxs, laserdiscs and DVDs with musical moments from various Disney films, TV shows and attractions….as lyrics for the songs are displayed on-screen….typically with the Mickey Mouse icon as a “bouncing ball”.  Early releases open with a theme song introduction containing footage featuring Professor Owl and his class…..as seen originally in 1953 in two Disney shorts….Melody and Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom….which was voiced then by Bill Thompson…..whereas, Professor Owl is now voiced by Corey Burton….while Professor Owl hosts some of the videos….and either Ludwig Von Drake or Jiminy Cricket host others…..whereby later volumes, as well as the two Christmas videos, did not have a host at all. The footage of Von Drake and Jiminy Cricket were taken from several television programs….including the Walt Disney anthology television series, and Mickey Mouse Club….which featured the characters in the 1950’s and 1960’s. 

In this video seen herewith….Professor Owl teaches all about the context of music in this Sing Along Song by the title of Scales and Arpeggios….and then tops his music lesson off with the dog-happy song of Why Should We Worry.
