It’s interesting to note that the first few volumes of the Disney’s Sing-Along Songs home video specials started out as promotional materials for the theatrical releases of Disney movies at the time. The second volume, released 1987, was timed with the rerelease of Snow White in 1987, its golden anniversary.
The special’s framing device of a bird classroom taught by Professor Owl also featured recycled animations from the source materials of the characters and settings, the shorts Melody and Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom that form Adventures in Music. Sharp eyes can spot identical scenes with different dubbed dialogue throughout.
Anyway, we’ll get right on to list the featured songs for Sing-Along Songs Volume: “Heigh-Ho”:
- Heigh-Ho (from 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)
- Up, Down and Touch the Ground (from 1966’s Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree)
