amazing animation: sesame street 'daddy dear'

Daddy Dear

D, D, D, D

Daddy dear, oh daddy dear

Do dogs have dreams, do ducks have ears?

Do dragons dance, why do gophers dig holes?

Do gophers dress up in their dirty clothes?

D, D, D, D

Dogs dream of meat and their dreams are delicious

Ducks do have ears but they don't do the dishes

Gophers dig holes to hide their candy bars

Dragons don't dance and they don't smoke cigars

D, D, D, D

Daddy dear, oh daddy sweet

Do dandylions roar, do daisies have feet?

May I have a drink of water and a dish of tadpoles?

Daddy how deep is a doughnut hole?

D, D, D, D

If dandylions roar then your daddy is deaf

The daisies drank the water so the tadpoles left

Your eyes are droopy darling daughter and you're dizzy in the head

The toads are eating dinner so it's time to go to bed

Little dolly go to bed

I wish i knew who animated this, but my googling turned up no information. I love the style of illustration, especially the 'd' amongst the flowers etc.

Its interesting reading the comments on the YouTube page, so many people saying they found it scary for various reasons. I don't really get that, but i have always liked slightly disturbing things. This always just seemed pretty to me. I hope you weren't scared!
