Disney's Robin Hood







Happy Blog-i-versary to me!  This month makes 2 years of blogging!  I love writing this blog and sharing fun things with my readers!
Disney's version of Robin Hood is one of my favourite childhood movies.  So when I saw this book-on-tape at a book sale a few weeks ago I snapped it up.  (Don't get in my way when I'm at a used book sale, man.  I'm on a mission!  Haha!)  I saw that Robin Hood is on Netflix now so I want to watch it soon with my daughters.  It's such a cute movie and the songs are catchy.  Recently my 7 year old and I were talking about something or other and it came up that she didn't know what a cassette tape is.  She thought it was a VHS tape (probably should be impressed she even knows what that is!).  But then when I showed her a cassette tape later she did remember seeing one before.  Wow, I guess they are archaic now!  I remember as a kid I would listen to books on tape on my headphones as I was lying in bed before going to sleep.  Or when I got a bit older I would listen to songs that were taped off the radio.  Remember trying to quickly tape a song off the radio when it came on?  You would sit there and listen until it came on just so you could hear your favourite?

  1. I always loved the Disney Robin Hood. I think I had a crush on him as a kid. (Why not? My sister was going to marry the Snuggle fabric softener bear.) Funny coincidence: last night, my husband took a van back from Amarillo to Kansas, and they drove along Route 66 for a bit. He was texting me about the Roger Miller Museum in Erick, Oklahoma. When he finally got home, he found the website to show it to me, and the music that plays on the website is Roger Miller scatting as Alan O'Dale, the minstrel rooster.
