There are only two children’s TV Easter specials that I can think of. The Peanuts’ Easter Beagle is one. The Rankin and Bass special ‘Here Comes Peter Cottontail’ is the other. In my humble opinion, the Rankin and Bass show is the better of the two. This week’s My Vintage Video is the original TV [...]

Here’s a vintage tribute to Ireland’s independence! The Irish fought the British from 1916 to 1921. This sheet music was published in 1921, the last year of war. Eddie Cantor was one of the song’s co-writers. Cantor wasn’t Irish, but the song conjured up the feelings many Irish immigrants had as a war was being [...]

Perhaps the most popular children’s Easter character is Peter Cottontail. His popularity is due-in-large part to the hit song “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” written in 1950. The video below is a mid-50s jazzy version of the tune. Enjoy as you decorate eggs, eat peeps and don your Easter bonnet. Happy Easter!

Easter is this Sunday and who’d hopping into town? Well, believe or not Yogi Bear is! I recently came across this comic book from 1978. It’s a large, oversize comic book (10 x 13).

It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without kicking back with a draft of Guinness. Enjoy this 1950s commercial as you take a sip of this classic Irish stout!
