Soupy Sales Sez Do the Mouse and Other Teen Hits

Soupy Sales was a popular kid's show in the 1950s and 60s. He also had a minor hit with the song "The Mouse," which also had an accompanying dance. On this album, he not only performs that hit and the follow-up "Mouse Trap," he also sings a number of popular songs at the time, as well as some fun novelty hits and original songs. Enjoy!

Here's the track list:
  1. The Mouse
  2. Name Game
  3. Sad Sack
  4. Speedy Gonzales
  5. Hey Pearl
  6. The Nitty Gritty
  7. Mouse Trap
  8. Your Brains'll Fall Out
  9. King Kong
  10. Mighty Clem
  11. Pachalafaka
  12. Mr. Cab Driver
UPDATE: I'm afraid I was forced to remove the link for this album, but you can find these songs (and more) on the album featured below!

Music from Mary Poppins and Other Film Favorites

Woo-hoo! I actually got another album in for this week! The first side of the record features songs from "Mary Poppins," but for some reason "Let's Go Fly a Kite" is simply referred to as the "Overture" and "Stay Awake" is called the "Finale." Also how they could have done a Mary Poppins album and left out "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is beyond me! The flip side features such film favorites as "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "I've Been Working on the Railroad". (Huh?) Anyway, I hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Overture (Let's Go Fly a Kite)
  2. Spoon Full of Sugar
  3. Feed the Birds
  4. Chimchimcheree
  5. Finale (Stay Awake)
  6. Take Me Out to the Ballgame
  7. I've Been Working on the Railroad
  8. Beautiful Dreamer
  9. Billy Boy
  10. Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be

The New Zoo Revue

Hey, I'm back again after too long an absence, with this fun album from the classic children's show. I think it was actually two short records put together because the opening and closing theme appear on both sides of the record. I changed it so the open starts the whole record and the closing theme finishes it. These sound like they might have been taken from actual episodes. Anyway, I hope to have at least one more album on here this week, so let's cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Here's the track list:
  1. New Zoo Revue (Open)
  2. School Daze
  3. It's Lonely When You Don't Like School
  4. We Need School
  5. Stay in School
  6. In the Arts
  7. Colors
  8. The Only Art in the World
  9. Cheer Up
  10. New Zoo Revue (Close)
