Hippos in Tutus

Somehow last night, the boy and I started talking about Disney's Fantasia.  We both commented on how it's been ages since we've seen it, and how there are specific pieces of music that now when we hear it, we can only think of that Fantasia segment.  For the boy it's the Dinosaur section set to The Rite of Spring, and for me it's those fabulous dancing hippos set to Dance of the Hours.  I love that segment (as I think most ballerinas would) cause it just cracks me up every time!  

I found these cool pictures from a Fantasia book~


  1. I love the dancing Hippos! You found an incredible book about them. I never knew she had a name! How fun.

  2. I've wanted the book about Fantasia forever! My favorite segment is a tie - between the hippos and the one with all the centaurs.
