How Much Is That Doggie in the Window

I think we've got another hybrid children's album here. A number of these songs sound much older to me (like "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and "Peter Rabbit"). It's the newer sounding songs that sound kind of crazy. It's almost like some of them were written for (thankfully) aborted Saturday morning cartoons.

Check out this lyric from "Tippy the Tiger":
"Baby tiger, too cute to spank! Baby tiger, too cute for a tank(?)"

or this one from "Lenny the Leopard":
"Lenny the Leopard was a drop-out! Lenny the Leopard was a pop out!"

(I can almost hear Daws Butler doing his dumb wolf/Huckleberry Hound voice, or maybe even Stan Freberg's Pete Puma voice for this one.)

Know what makes the Grumpy Old Crocodile so grumpy? Well, according to his song: "His old rheumatism has been acting up today!"

There's some neat stuff here (and some odd stuff here too). Hope you enjoy it!

Here's the track list:
  1. How Much Is That Doggie in the Window

  2. Frisky Little Puppy

  3. The Cat Came Back

  4. Mary Had a Little Lamb

  5. The Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat

  6. Tippy the Tiger

  7. Lenny the Leopard

  8. Peter Rabbit

  9. The Grumpy Old Crocodile

  10. Chip the Chimpanzee

  11. I Love Little Pussy

  12. O Where O Where Has My Little Dog Gone

  13. Hark Hark the Dogs Do Bark

I have been looking for an audible copy of Tippy The Tiger for decades. I still have a chipped, worn out copy of it on 45 (Offspring Records)
