i'm no fool, no sirree...


"White Wilderness contains a scene that supposedly depicts a mass lemming migration, and ends with the lemmings leaping to their deaths into the Arctic Ocean. However, the entire sequence was staged and does not reflect the true behaviour of lemmings.

The sequence was filmed by photographer James R. Simon in Alberta, Canada, which has no lemming population (and indeed no ocean). The filmmakers bought trapped lemmings from Inuit schoolchildren in Manitoba and transported them to the set. A few dozen lemmings, placed on a large, snow-covered turntable and filmed from a variety of angles became a mass migration. As a grand finale, the captive lemmings were herded over a cliff into a river; in the film, the narrator states that the lemmings are falling into the sea and are on a "suicide drive".[1]

Generations of TV watching schoolchildren grew up on the Disney nature films, and the myth of lemming suicide persists to this day."

my brother and i spun The Jungle Book album til it melted...way back when.

from wikki-tikki:

"The Jungle Book, because of its moral tone, came to be used as a motivational book by the Cub Scouts, a junior element of the Scouting movement. This use of the book's universe was approved by Kipling after a direct petition of Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting movement, who had originally asked for the author's permission for the use of the Memory Game from Kim in his scheme to develop the morale and fitness of working-class youths in cities. Akela, the head wolf in The Jungle Book, has become a senior figure in the movement."

Agendas ruin it for me.

Jungle Book, March of Penguins, White Fang, Call of the Wild : irretrievable

Odyssey of an otter, chimp stuff : suspect

Where's a good bonobo video when you need one?
