Thanks for the "Fantasia: outtake, Elliot! Most appreciated. An interesting fact about thus unused piece, is that Disney wound up inserting this animated segment into "Make Mine Music," an animated feature with several musical segments, which was released in 1946. It was titled, "Blue Bayou." I believe different music was used, reworked by Bobby Worth and Ray Gilbert and sung by the Ken Darby singers,

Your friend,
