The many sounds of Gummibears.

A discussion with two of my roommates about the olden days of Disney afternoon cartoons brought many mixed memories to the surface. This is a collection of trivia, with the Gummibear grande finale.

Fact: In DuckTales, Uncle Scrooge is raising Huey, Dewey, and Louie because their guardian, Uncle Donald, joined the navy. Yeah, I know. But who isn't above a little subliminal messaging?

Fact: InTaleSpin, the she-bear who buys out Baloo's freight business is named Rebecca Cunningham. I grew up with a Rebecca Cunningham.

Fact: This is boring. Now to the good stuff.

Check out these bad boys. First, the original Gummibears theme. Second, the a cappella version, hailing from Brown University. And finally, the Swedish techno remix.

In conclusion, homework is overrated.

You grew up with Rebecca? Ha, I worked with her at the Center for Family History and Genealogy. Small world. :)

I'm not sure how I missed out on Gummibears in my childhood...

Yeah, Rebecca was in my stake! Her sister Rachel was closer to my age, but I knew Rebecca from Girls Camp. :) You might need to catch up on Gummibears, for your own sake.
