    Not sure this is the right board, but . . .

    The last several trips, we have enjoyed watching Lambert, Little Hiawatha, the Donald Duck cartoon with the bees and the Goofy cartoons in the lobby and in the Mara at AKL. However, last December, we noticed they were gone, and again in April, I noticed they weren't on in the food court at Pop Century. Now, it's all "Company Clips" and other more contemporary shows.

    Any idea what happened to them? I wish I could find them on DVD or something. I love Lambert.

    Lambert
    You can't even baa, you can't even bleat
    Your ears are too big and so are your feet

    Lambert
    Your tail is too short and so is your wool
    There isn't enough for one bag full

    Lambert, the Sheepish Lion
    Lambert is always tryin'
    To be a wild and wooly sheep
    Lambert, the Sheepish Lion

    Little lambs all love to butt
    Their heads are hard as stone
    Lambert thought that he could lick
    A dozen lambs alone.

    While the other lambs all gathered 'round
    To watch the funny bout (oh, oh, oh, oh...)
    He wanted to be counted in
    But he was counted out.

    Lambert, the Sheepish Lion
    Lambert is always tryin'
    To be a wild and wooly sheep
    Lambert, the Sheepish Lion.

    The little lambs got Lambert's goat
    He was a nervous wreck
    He had to hide behind his ma
    To save his little neck.

    He couldn't baa and he couldn't butt
    At last poor Lambert knew
    He hated to admit that he
    Was yellow through and through.

    One night the sheep were fast asleep
    Lambert woke up with a fright
    For he had heard an awful sound
    And saw an awful, awful sight!

    A hungry wolf had found the flock
    Lambert was petrified
    He couldn’t baa, he couldn’t butt
    He was big but he was yellow

    But when he saw this gruesome sight
    And heard his mother cryin’
    Somethin’ snapped inside of him
    He was a ragin’ lion!

    (After the fight with the wolf)

    Lambert the Sheepish Lion
    Lambert ... there's no denyin'
    Now he's a wild a wooly sheep
    Instead of a sheepish
    Wailing and weepish
    Little-Bo-Peepish Lion.

    Wickey's Friend,

    Thanks for posting this thread. We really enjoyed watching Lambert when we visited in 2004. It's nice to know that it's on DVD.

    I loved Lambert as a child! That was the best story! I ordered the DVD from Amazon along with Peter and the Wolf, another must have from my childhood

    Oh too funny!

    This is one of the songs that we come away with after a trip. For many people the Small World song keeps playing in their head. Not for us, it's Lambert!

    My favorite line is, "He was big but he was yellow..."

    It cracks me up every time. I used to show this movie in Toddler Storytime when I worked as a Children's Librarian. I must have seen Lambert at least 500 times over the course of 17 years, and I still love it!!!

    My favorite was Pluto and the Armadillo. I would figure out how long the loop was and try to tune in every time it came on. I finally found it on a compilation of Pluto cartoons DVD. Now I just need to find Plutopia and I'll be all set!
