    Mike did you ever get a reply from anybody about this? I've been away from the board for about 8 months and just saw this post. If you never got any kind of response from TFD, I'll see what I can do.

    Don't think this one was mentioned.

    There was this large termite mound with this strange music playing and kids off camera talking about it. then the camera shifts to the left and here's this house nearby, probably made out of wood.

    I remember that film quite well actually. The stuff the mind can drag up from the past is baffling sometimes huh? LOL

    Watch The Dance.

    Hopefully I'm not repeating something I already mentioned but does anyone remember this film?

    A film about the parts of the body.

    Girls dance and this guy with a band is singing watch the dance.

    Love to see that on youtube.

    answer to a burning question

    If you haven't heard from the Trenton Fire Department, there may be a good reason why. I've been watching this flim closely. And on the fire truck, and one of the fireman's helmets, it's not Trenton, New Jersey. It's Tarrytown, New York. Just a short distance up the Hudson river from Manhattan)And I believe they have a fire training academy up there, where they could have shot footage of cadets climbing ladders, extinguishing flames, and all the other fun stuff that's in a fireman's day's work.

    How's that for a little sleuthing?:)

    3 Snake Films

    1 took place in a zoo and was crawling up a tree.

    2nd one I can't remember if it was also in a zoo or the desert. Luis I think announced for this one.

    3rd. This snake looks like it was crawling along a table or some flat service.

    Yes Film.

    Don't know if this one was mentioned or not.

    Can't remember what kind of animal this was but it walks and keeps moving its head up and down and a bunch of off camera people keep saying YES while thw word YES kepps flashing on the screen.

    To me the film was stupid but still kind of funny.

    Did I mention that I like the original "Lot of little nuts" number filmed at the Teddy Peanut Butter company (which I know where it is) much better than the staged version they used breifly after the tribute special of Joe Raposo?

    Factory ones were always my favorite. I love to see how stuff gets made. I loved it when Mr. Rogers did it too.

    I remember that a couple of lines in that fruit song were changed later:

    • "Don't eat a lemon, it might make you sick" became "Don't eat a lemon, it'll make you go 'ick'". (Guess they didn't want kids to think lemons were poisonous or something...)
    • The "murder" description of pineapples was changed to a less brutal word, but I forget what the replacement was. Anyone else out there who's heard the new version, please refresh my memory here!

    Lol, I remember the "might make you sick" line. Personally, I never took it as lemons are poisonous. Just that it was unpleasant to eat (and probably my parents explained that to me as well).

    Oh please, I can't believe they took away the word "murder." It's an expression for goodness sake! It does not hold some power to turn children violent. Lol And if a child does take it the wrong way, it is the parents' responsiblity to set them straight, not a TV show.

    Anyway, I doubt they have made the world a safer place by replacing the word, heh.

    I can also say that the lemon line didn't make me think they were poisonous, just they weren't good to eat raw (like potatoes), and the line about peeling melons: "Try peeling a melon, what trouble you're in!" made me think "Oh, I'm going to get in trouble if I ever try to peel a melon!" hehe the minds of children!
