Jiminy Cricket

Jim Fanning over at Tulgey Wood jogged my memory by posting an article he had written about the old Disney Christmas special “From All Of Us To All Of You”. The special, which first aired on Walt Disney Presents in 1958, featured Jiminy Cricket as Master of Ceremonies as he introduced a series of holiday-themed clips from Disney features and shorts. Newly produced animation linked the shorts and featured Cricket, Tinkerbell, and Mickey Mouse as a very enthusiastic one-man orchestra.

Much like Disney’s Halloween Treat, this program was re-aired regularly for years afterward back in the days when Disney actually tried to air Disney-related programming. Parts of it were re-sourced for a Disney Channel special in the early 1980′s and a later home video release. It was also shown on syndicated re-runs of the Disney anthology program, where it became a staple of my childhood. In fact, all these years later the theme song tends to run through my mind during the holidays. Any chance this might show up on the Disney Channel this year? Nah, I didn’t think so…

Here’s our emcee Jiminy Cricket singing the theme for the special. Happy holidays, everyone!
