@FVH: Yay, direct continuation from previous list! :)

They can also release a talking Andy Breckman doll! Pull the string and he'll say his catchphrases like "Go to Hell!"...except the doll would say it unenthused, like "Go to hell, I'm not saying that Ken. This is stupid..." :)

@Andrew: I dig the fast-paced rope-skipping rhymes, and the song by Shirley Ellis and later the Belle Stars uses them to great effect.

Woody Guthrie was a pioneer in recording songs specifically for children.
