Barack Obama Assassinated!

Now that I've got your attention, it's time to end my little contest. It was hard trying to decide on a winner, but I've made up my mind.

First, the answers!

1) "It's a world of laughter, a world of tears..."
If I need to tell you that this is the opening line to "it's a small world," just leave now.

2) "The seaweed is always greener, In somebody else's lake..."
"Under The Sea" from The Little Mermaid.

3) "I can show you the world..."
"A Whole New World" from Aladdin.

4) "Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me..."
Likewise for #1. The Mickey Mouse Club theme should still resonate in peoples' minds despite the most recent version going off the air around 17 years ago.

5) "Life is like a hurricane..."
Hell yes, it's the Ducktales theme. Woo-hoo.

6) "I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware..."
"I Can't Wait To Be King" from The Lion King.

7) "Who does she think she is? That girl has tangled with the wrong man!..."
The title for this one was somewhat tough. It's "Gaston" from Beauty & The Beast.

8) "In every job that must be done, There is an element of fun..."
It's quite sad that I think of "Cut Every Corner" from the Simpsons with this opening line rather than what its parodying, "A Spoonful of Sugar" from Mary Poppins.

9) "We dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, in a mine the whole day through..."
Despite what you think, it's the famous "Heigh-Ho" from Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, NOT "Whistle While You Work."

10) "Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't like to see something strange..."
One of my favorites, "This is Halloween" from Nightmare Before Christmas. While I'm partial to the Marilyn Manson cover, you just can't beat the original.

11) "You think I'm just an ignorant savage..."
"Colors of The Wind" from Pocahontas. Umm...Puppies!

12) "Think of a wonderful thought..."
"You Can Fly" from Peter Pan.

13) "One little spark of inspiration, Is at the heart of all creation..."
Remember that little note of omitting songs with their title in the first line? I lied. The song's title is "One Little Spark," and its from the "Journey Into Imagination" ride from EPCOT.

14) "Daring duck of mystery, Champion of right..."
The theme to Darkwing Duck. Love that show.

15) "When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake..."
This is the song "Grim Grinning Ghosts" from the Haunted Mansion ride.

16) "Come stop your crying, It will be all right..."
Fucking Phil Collins' "You'll Be In My Heart" nabbing Tarzan an Oscar from the South Park movie...

17) "Step right up and come on in, here's where the fun begins..."
Here's where it started getting tough. Anyone remember Disney Afternoon? Well, it had a theme song, and this was its opening line.

18) "Gather 'round and I'll elucidate, What goes on outside when it gets late..."
It's the "Headless Horsemen" song from the "Sleepy Hollow" segment from the movie "The Adventures of Ichabod & Mr. Toad." That's a mouthful for you.

19) "If you had wings, you could do many things..."
Like #13, this song's title was hidden in plain sight. "If You Had Wings" was the theme song to the long-defunct Magic Kingdom attraction of the same name.

20) "Calling one and all tonight, it's hoppin' at the hall tonight..."
A-HA! Out of the 4 (yes four!) entries I received, not one of them got this answer. This video might help:

Disney's Halloween Treat was a Halloween special that aired on the Disney Channel in 1982 and after the 80's, was never seen again. I can see why it would be so obscure. I couldn't even track down the lyrics for it, I had to find that vid and write down the first line.

And there you have it! So, who's our lucky winner?

As I said before, I only managed to get 4 entries. I'm disappointed. I even made it easier, AND didn't put in a "No Cheating" rule!

Out of the 4 entries, 3 of them got 19 out of 20 correct. So...who wins?

Let me explain my criteria: The rules state that whoever got the most correct the earliest would win. I also said that I wanted both the Song title and where that song was from, if possible. So, whoever gave both the song and where it was from got higher priority.

So that narrows it down to two, as one of the entries only listed where the song was from for 3 of the songs.

So...I declare a Tie! The Grand Prize Winner is my good friend Steve M.! He sent in his entry earlier than the 2nd prize winner, another good friend of mine (and fellow blogger) Vinnie C.!

Steve gets to write an exclusive "Beaming For Bunnies" entry, while Vinnie gets to write an "In 10 Words" entry! Email me at when you've got an idea!

Better luck next time to the 2 other entrants, Dan, and Carrie C.

...Speaking of next time, let's make it right now. With four out of five parts for my "50 Greatest Animated Villains of All Time" list completed, only the Top 10 remain.

Your mission: Who do you think are in the Top 10? No emailing this time, let's keep it in the comments this time. Deadline...whenever I post Part 5.

Prize? Same as this time, the chance to write a "Beaming for Bunnies" and/or an "In 10 Words" entry if you get the most correct guesses.

I was totally going to enter, but I was stumped on the last like, five or six.

11) "You think I'm just an ignorant savage..."
"Colors of The Wind" from Pocahontas. Umm...Puppies!

Nostalgia chick reference? If so, ha!

Why, yes it is! :)

I knew some, but I didn't enter because it's hard enough to come up with posts for my own blog let alone someone else's. I would just bring down the level of your don't want none of that. ;)

Does that mean that the fact that I actually mentioned a prize is why I only got 4 entries? :(
