Cartoon on VHS with songs, anyone remember?
« on: Tuesday 01 April 2014, 09:07 am »
I vaguely remember a VHS tape that I used to watch when I was a kid. It was probably from the mid-80's to the early 90's, since I was born in 1985, and remember being able to play the VHS for myself when I got old enough. It was in color and most likely regular animation and not puppets.

It featured a bunch of songs for kids. Songs I remember are:

- An elephant / hippo or some other similar animal singing, "I'm picking up a baby bumble bee" and acting out the words. Then the animal put the bee in its mouth and it stung her.
- An animal with floppy ears singing, "Do your ears hang low". It was moving its ears around to the words in the song, doing the actions like tying them in a bow.
- A cartoon showing a spider acting out the words in "The itsy bitsy spider."

I also seem to remember there being a hot air balloon and some sort of circus theme.

It also probably isn't a "Kid songs" or "Baby songs" tape, and also not "Dumbo's circus."

I'm new here and this has been bothering me for a long time, and I have done a lot of research trying to find it already. Thank you so much if you can help me! :) ??? ??? ??? ???

My first two thoughts were Dumbo's Circus or The Elephant Show but then I re-read your post and saw that you thought it was animation and not puppets so I'm not sure.  If anything else comes to mind I'll post it.

This question has been answered on another website. In case anyone was wondering what this was, it was a Golden Book Video tape called, "Sing, Giggle and Grin."

I found it on youtube:
