Croissant de Triomphe

Thursday, October 17, 2013



The weather has been so beautiful this week which usually energizes me, but for some reason I have been so tired! I think maybe the last few weeks have just caught up with me and so I have been using the little energy I have to be out in the sunshine. With that said today I am going to break away from the norm and leave you with this little video I saw while I was left alone to clean the living room (my children scattered when I said "we" were going to clean up. go figure). I kept meaning to turn the tv off and switch it out for some wait, wait don't tell me, but I never got around to it and after I saw this I was glad. I am not a huge mickey mouse fan myself (or I haven't been for the lat couple decades), but this adorable video reminded me of the good old days of Saturday morning cartoons, but better because it's not terribly derogatory and racist. J'adore! And if you are in the mood for another video, this made me giggle.

  1. Oh, mon dieu! Cette video faisait mon coeur dire "SWOON!"Et j'ai compris tous! Merci, twinsy. Mon journee est plus bonne maintenant!
    (Also, I didn't think it was derogatory or racist at all! Plus the French aren't a race, so it can't be, right? It was delightfully stereotypical, but accurate and fun! I love that he went from Notre Dame to le Moulin Rouge in seconds, haha. LOVED this!) xo

    1. i figured you would love this. no, i don't think it was derogatory or racist at all either. i think it's adorable (the police were my favorite with the tiny car under his hat). i just meant when cartoons used to show other cultures and races it was very much both those things. maybe i need to delete the "so" in that sentence ; )

    2. Ohhh, got it! Yeah, we only have to look at Tiger Lily/the Indians in Peter Pan. Which is a movie I adored as a child, and still do, but am going to have to put a disclaimer in front of when I show it to my own kid one day. xo

  2. Cartoons are so different now- and it seems like now cartoons are so intense! Nora and I watched Alice and Wonderland the other day- the old cartoon version and she loved the songs and was dancing around. :)

  4. I somehow missed this yesterday... maybe I popped on too soon, but what a fun way to wake up this morning. Saturday morning cartoons. Those were the days. XO

  5. This is so cool, modern cartoons seem so strange to me. I'll watch cartoons with my nephew and it is such a bizarre experience, like I can barely understand what is happening.
