D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Wake Up And Smell The Flowers

 

Well, here’s one you weren’t expecting.

Ferdinand The Bull (1936) was a charming children’s book by Munro Leaf about a sweet, non-violent bull who would rather smell the flowers than fight.

 

In 1938, the popular story was adapted into a memorable, Academy Award-winning animated cartoon by the Walt Disney studio.

 

You can watch the entire seven-minute film by clicking here.

On May 3rd, 1938 (isn’t is amazing the detailed information you get here?), the story of peace-loving Ferdinand was told in song by Slim & Slam, the seminal jazz duo who also gave us “Cement Mixer (Puti Puti)” and “Flat Foot Floogie (with a Floy Floy).” O-voutie!
