Robin Hood and Roger Miller

Some of you may have seen Disney's Robin Hood (released in 1973). If you haven't seen it, animated animals are the characters in the movie. Robin Hood is a fox, for example, and Little John is a bear. The minstrel is a rooster, played by Roger Miller. Sarah recently watched Robin Hood at my parents' house. Earlier this week, my dad gave me a CD of Roger Miller's greatest hits ("King of the Road," "Dang Me," etc.). We listened to it later that night in the car.

Today we met my parents for lunch in Kingsport. When we got in the car to go home, Sarah said she wanted to listen to the "chicken CD." It took us a minute, but we realized that she was referring to the Roger Miller CD! We had mentioned briefly last week when we got the CD that Roger Miller played the rooster in Robin Hood. She didn't remember the artist's name; she just remembered that he had been the rooster! And I guess she enjoyed his music, since she asked for it again today!
