Grumpy Musical Figurine

 By: Nick

I can't recall when I picked up this Grumpy Schmid musical figurine, from the 1990's.

This figure plays the song "Children's Marching Song".

What song is that?

I wind it up and hear what I know as "Knick, Knack, Paddy Whack". Also known as "This Old Man".

Who knew? Apparently it was adapted for the 1958 film "The Inn of the Sixth Happiness" by composer Malcom Arnold as "The Children's Marching Song", which led to hit singles for Cyril Stapleton and Mitch Miller.

Disney Musings: Like Epcot, it's edutainment!
