The Foolish Frog, by Pete Seeger

This short, animated film is a classic Pete Seeger story-song. I've presented the story in preschool programs (sans banjo), and it works as long as I refrain from attempts to imitate Pete Seeger. Sometimes, when I need to cheer myself up, I listen to "The Foolish Frog." As Steve Martin says, "The banjo is such a happy instrument. You just can't sing a depressing song when you're playing the banjo."

That is SO cute! It'll be stuck in my head all day. I needed that this morning.

Steve was also right when he sang "It's just impossible...to suck a Cadillac up your nose"

Lady K: It's all a part of my cunning plan!

Limpy99: Ahhh, the wisdom of Steve Martin.
