Do any of you remember the Disney Sing-Along Songs videos that were released on VHS starting in 1986 (and later on DVD)? Some of the videos were hosted by Professor Owl, who is the lucky subject of today’s Disney Doodle!

In the video series, Professor Owl, encouraged a classroom of little birdies (and viewers watching) to sing along to Disney songs. According to Ashley, if Professor Owl was able to visit a Disney theme park, he’d likely make Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room his first stop.

“I love the Disney Sing-Along Songs videos,” Ashley said. “It’s easy to imagine Professor Owl and his class wanting to sing ‘The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room’ together!

Comments

  • I still have most of the set here in Australia. I could not believe when I saw this. It embodies my childhood.

  • My 2 y/o daughter loves watching the old Sing-Along Songs. She also loves watching the 1953 shorts “Melody” and “Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom” which are the features that Professor Owl and the classroom originally debuted. Fun fact: Bill Thompson, the voice of Professor Owl & Bertie Birdbrain, portrayed several classic Disney characters including White Rabbit, Mr. Smee, numerous voices in “Lady and the Tramp”, and park ranger J. Audubon Woodlore from the “Donald Duck and Humphrey the Bear” cartoons.
