Today Is Earth Day – Do You Remeber the Litterbug Song?
This morning on the show, Leslie and I were talking about today being Earth Day and I asked her if she remembered the Litterbug song…she did not. I remember hearing the song in elementary school and it’s one of those tunes that just sticks with you, but I haven’t heard it in years. Littering is still one of the biggest problems facing our environment today and that song was played everywhere.
The song made it’s debut in a June 1961 Donald Duck cartoon called “Litterbug”. The song is sung at the very beginning the cartoon and really has a great message. I was able to find this YouTube video of the cartoon and of course, we played the song on the air. Remember, love the Earth and don’t litter…enjoy and Happy Earth Day!
