Memories - blue danube 1939 cartoon

In the last week I have started working freelance full-time!  So apart from being a little scary, it is very exciting, I'm a free agent!  So to celebrate I have added one of my favourite cartoons I loved as a child.  We used to have it on video back in the 80's.  My sister and I used to watch it over and over again.  It's called the Blue Danube which is a 1939 MGM cartoon about how all the little animals and babies(?!) all work together to make the river Danube blue.  I was, and still am, fascinated by the detail in the drawings, it felt very magical as a child and I loved the way they added colour from nature.  "Thus they gathered nature's blue.  For the Danube's glorious hue".  Enjoy!
