"This album brings together for the first time on record, the most delightful and refreshing cartoon characters ever devised for TV. With each new series, Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera, the creators of these wonderful films seem to surpass themselves in ingenuity. Here at last, especially with Quick Draw McGraw, are cartoons that any adult can watch and really enjoy along with the youngsters. These songs reflect that humor and zest which has become the trademark of Hanna-Barbera productions." Back Cover Liner Notes

Ludwig Von Drake Talking Plush Doll Soundtrack









This soundtrack was sent to me by one of my readers. It comes from a Disney Ludwig Von Drake Talking Plush Doll. It came with a special-sized cassette, and the cassette deck built into it that played this tape. This person said his Uncle had a toy store in the 60's and 70's, and had one of these for sale. He found one on ebay recently which is where he got this sound track from.

END OF THE ROAD FOLKS??? OR MAYBE NOT!!!

IT'S BEEN SUGGESTED I TRY A DONATION BUTTON TO PAY FOR MUSIC FILE HOSTING FEES. I HAVE DONE SO AT TOP OF THE RIGHT HAND COLUMN. WE'LL SEE HOW THAT GOES. I THANK ALL OF THOSE VERY GENEROUS DONATIONS THAT HAVE COME IN SO FAR.

I ALSO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO DOWNLOAD AS MANY OF MY MEGAUPLOAD SHARES AS THEY CAN. I GET REWARD POINTS FOR EVERY "UNIQUE" (NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS) DOWNLOAD. I CAN CASH IN 20,000 POINTS EACH MONTH, AND GET 1 MORE MONTH OF FREE PREMIUM MEGAUPLOAD (WHICH GIVES ME 25OGB OF FILE STORAGE). AT PRESENT I HAVE ABOUT 32,000 POINTS LEFT FROM PAST DOWNLOADS. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE OUTPOURING OF KIND WORDS, ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUPPORT.


NOT SURE HOW MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE THAT MY WIFE AND I ARE BOTH DISABLED AND ON SSI DISABILITY. WELL WHAT WITH THE RISING COST OF FUEL, GROCERIES, RENT, ETC.., ETC.. I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CLOSE DOWN EVERY WEBSITE I OWN THAT IS PAID FOR IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM. SO SADLY ANYMORE MUSIC SHARES WILL NOT BE TAKING PLACE AT THIS, OR MY OTHER 2 SHARING BLOGS, OR MY 250FREE.COM WEBSITES. AS A MATTER OF FACT I WILL PROBABLY BE PUTTING MY ENTIRE MUSIC COLLECTION UP FOR SALE AT MY BLUE-JAY WEBSITE. THIS BLOG IS FREE SO IT SHALL REMAIN HERE. HOWEVER, COME THE END OF JUNE, I WOULD SAY, I WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO PAY FOR THE SITES WHERE I PAY TO HAVE MY MANY MUSIC FILES HOSTED. I POST THIS NOTICE NOT FOR SYMPATHY, BUT TO LET YOU ALL KNOW THAT YOU SHOULD GRAB EVERY MUSIC FILE I HAVE AT MY 3 BLOGS & MY 25OFREE.COM WEBSITES WHILE YOU CAN. COME THE END OF JUNE THEY WILL NO LONGER HAVE VALID DOWNLOAD LINKS. SORRY TO HAVE TO TAKE THINGS TO THIS EXTREME, BUT THAT IS HOW THINGS ARE GOING NOW WITH OUR ECONOMY. IT'S BEEN FUN, AND I HATE TO DO ALL OF THIS, BUT SHORT OF LOSING MY MARRIAGE OVER THE FIGHTS WE'VE HAD LATELY OVER FINANCES, I HAVE NO CHOICE. THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY MANY READERS AND FANS OVER THESE PAST 4 OR 5 YEARS. DO KEEP IN TOUCH SOME HOW. THANKS!!!

"THE STORY OF GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS" (DQ-1250 12/1963)

THIS LP IS NARRATED BY RICA MOORE. "SHE WAS THE GRAND-DAUGHTER OF THE FOUNDER OF THE "THOMPSON CAFETERIAS" CHAIN. IT SEEMS HER MAIN LOVE WAS WRITING CHILDREN'S MUSIC. SHE WAS THE FEMALE VOICE ON THE GRAMMY-NOMINATED "ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION" LP WITH MOORE & JIMINY CRICKET. THIS SONG MAY HAVE BEEN THE INSPIRATION FOR WALT DISNEY TO HAVE THE "LEARNING TO TELL TIME IS FUN" LP RECORDING MADE WITH LAURA OLSHER (FAMOUS FOR HER NARRATION ON THE 1964 DISNEY LP ("CHILLING, THRILLING SOUNDS OF THE HAUNTED HOUSE"). FROM WHAT I CAN TELL MOORE'S CAREER IN SHOW BUSINESS WAS VERY SHORT-LIVED. SHE WENT ON TO RAISE PAPILLON DOGS WHERE SHE SETTLED DOWN IN MASSACHUSETTS. MS. MOORE DIED IN 1996 AT THE AGE OF 67."Info Provided By "Mouse Tracks - The Story Of Walt Disney Records"

EDIT: AS I TYPE THIS I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF RIPPING THE "LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD" LP TO MY PC. I SEE THAT RICA MOORE NARRATES THAT ONE ALSO. STAY TUNED FOR THAT WILL BE MY NEXT SHARE!!!
