I had more trouble than I thought with this quiz! Some answers concern the score in the films, and some songs I do not recognise, But seeming they are on the Internet I accepted them…and also because it is December too!

Q1 – Name a song in Disney’s “The Jungle Book”
For ten points:
Tell Him, Trust in me, Baloo’s Blue’s,
For five points:
My Own Home (3) The Bare Necessities (2) That’s what friends are for (2),
Not mentioned:
“Colonel Haiti’s march”, “I Wanna Be like You” and others
The Jungle Book was released in 1967. It tells the story of Mowgli, the man cub, who is brought up in the jungle, by Baloo the bear and Bagherra the panther. Mowgli also meets King Louie, the orang-utan, who wants the secret of “Man’s red fire” and escapes from Shere Khan the tiger. You can probably tell I love this film in particular!

Q2 – Name a song from “Mary Poppins”
For ten points:
The Perfect Nanny, I love to Laugh, Stay Awake, Jolly Holiday,
For five points:
Let’s go fly a kite (2) A Spoonful of Sugar (2) Feed the Birds (2),

Mary Poppins was released in 1964. Julie Andrews starred as Marry Poppins. It is about hit London’s West End as a musical.

Q3 – Name a song from “The Lady and the Tramp”
For ten points:

For five points:
Be our guest (2), Battle of the Tower (2),
Not mentioned
I am sure there are some more!
This film was released in 1991 and tells the classic story of Beauty (Belle) and the Beast. This was also made into a fabulous stage musical.

Q5 – Name a song from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”
For ten points:
I’m wishing, I’ve been tricked, Heigh Ho,
For five points:
Someday my prince will come (2), Whistle while you work (3), Bluddle-uddle-um-dum (The Dwarf's Washing song) (2)

I'm sure GTHO4 is more than generous enough to allow our northern friends a latitudinous description of a Holden Ute, he is after all, a Ford aficionado! (I miss my '69 XT, sob . . .)
