Forget the CD Exchange (if I don’t participate, it doesn’t exist) let’s have a music exchange right here at Cocky & Rude! Each time we have a C&R Dance Party, I’ll name a theme for the day and you’ll post your responses in the form of a YouTube video in the comments. And don’t forget to dance!
Today’s Theme Is: Your Favorite TV Theme Songs!
Link us to a YouTube video in the comments and tell us why you picked it.
Feel free to answer more than once!
As many of you know: I’M CRAZY ABOUT TELEVISION! But I’m going to go way back to when I was in the single-digits and pick Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears! I still know all the lyrics and sing it more often that I’d like to admit! Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears was Disney‘s first major serialized animated television series and is often credited by animators and animation historians as having helped jump start the television animation boom of the late 1980s and 1990s. Consequently, it also became the forerunner to Disney’s famous Disney Afternoon timeslot, which gave way to other famous serialized Disney television series, such as DuckTales, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles, and Bonkers. (Most of which also have GREAT theme songs!!!)
Now it’s your turn!
(And by the way, if your video doesn’t post in the comments correctly, FEAR NOT!
I’ll fix it as soon as I get a chance)

Adam steadfastly did not want me to post about this, but I really don’t give a crap. If I blogged about all the things Adam didn’t want me to blog about, I would never be at a loss for ideas. I also would not have to open some posts with the dreaded line “I didn’t know what else to post about…”
In 1946, Salvador Dali teamed up with Walt Disney to bring his already vivid art to life in the form of a cartoon. The collaboration was not officially completed for 58 years, but it was well worth the wait. When a friend told me about the clip, I was appalled. I’ve always adored the artwork of Dali and the idea of him illustrating a fuzzy singing squirrel or floppy bunny made me upset. In reality, Dali’s style holds true and truly mesmerizes. You can see hints of most of his most recognizable work throughout the piece, but not cartoonified. The result is eerie, haunting, and undoubtedly surreal. I hope you enjoy it.
For some reason, embedding of the video from youtube is disabled, so you must click on this link to view it.
Dali has long been a favorite of mine and not only because we share the same birthday. Tell me your thoughts on his work with Walt or his art in general.
