Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom
I don't know where I got it, but there was an unmarked VHS tape that had recorded classic cartoons on it. On the tape was a little gem called Toot, Whistle, Plunk, Boom. This Disney cartoon gives a run down on the 4 types of musical instruments and how they evolved throughout history. 'Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom' was animated with an art deco look which is so stylized that it does not look nearly as dated as it is.
This short is packed full of catchy tunes that stuck with me my whole life and I hope it does the same for my son. First released in 1953, this little short is the very definition of timeless educational programming and is just plain fun to watch.
