"We're going on a trip in our favorite rocket ship, zooming through the sky..."
Things you learn while watching "Little Einsteins" with your sick kids (which I am not entirely sure Playhouse Disney WANTS you to learn):
Antonin Dvorak was a hottie.
I was trying to place the music they used in this morning's episode, “Melody the Music Pet.” I wasn’t paying attention during the show because Seg was whining about waffles and Terzo was tantrumming about waffles, and, well, I was dreaming of a giant mimosa.
It was Dvorak’s "Humoresque Number 7."
I was happy to discover this but it did not ameliorate my desire for a mimosa.
Or Antonin Dvorak.
Also, I fear I am developing a completely inappropriate crush on this guy who sings about worms, and wanting to be a puppy dog, between episodes of “Little Einsteins” and “Mickey Mouse’s Clubhouse”:
I can’t decide if it’s the dorky glasses, or the gorgeous laugh lines.
This might be worse than harboring feelings for Greg Wiggle.
In the process of searching for the damn Dvorak piece, I ran across this blog.
Very entertaining, but good Lord, how much TV do their kids watch?
Although I too admit an inordinate fondness for Emily Yeung.
That link is the official site and has the incredibly catchy theme song which I now sing all day long, but the animation is just unbelievably horrible. For a better idea of just how very engaging and adorable Emily Yeung is (I just want to SQUEEZE her), look:
We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
