I never met Woody Guthrie but I feel like I have, having grown up with his music. It gives me immense pleasure to pass the tradition on to my son with this video of his enduring songs set to captivating, educational and humorous animation. Great job Nora!! (Nora is Woody's daughter, who is responsible for the creation of this video.) Looking forward to the sequel!!!! Hint hint.
The first two videos of the four that we bought for our three-year old are This Land is Your Land and Tom Chapin's This Pretty Planet. I only want the best for my child. Don't you??

I have a five year old that dressed up as Woody Guthrie for Halloween and one of the reasons was this delightful video. Need I say more? I will anyway.
This video was one of the things that helped my son begin appreciating music. The animation is just "not real" enough so our boys could relax and enjoy the show without seeing real-life "dinosaurs" or whatever Disney wants to feed our children today. When you look at the options available in cartoons (let's differentiate cartoons from modern animation), i.e. Scooby Doo, etc, this stands head and shoulders above the competition.

On the one hand, the video makes accessible to children the delight and playfulness of Woody's children's songs. On the other hand, I think the video was made by martians who've never traveled to the US or this planet for that matter and who have no understanding of Woody's life and political vision. The video lacks a sensitivity to race and gender. The gender stereotypes are dreadful!! The animation for the song This Land Is Your Land in no way reflects the lyrics or mission of that song (we're in a rain forest for this one!) I would recommend the children's book This Land Is Your Land animated by Kathy Jakobsen if you are interested in images that capture the political and social vision of this song in a way accessible to children.

I saw this video while subbing in a music class this year. I am a long time study of Woody Guthrie, being a Okie folk singer from years ago. I even held the 1st two Woody Festivals before the present ones held in Tecumseh. I knew Marge and met Arlo. As a presentation of Woody's Children's Songs this video is an excellent teaching tool to introduce children to a "kid from Oklahoma" and his wonderful songs for children. He knew and loved kids, as he was one himself. Puleez, when a child is 8, 9, 10 years old he doesn't need to bother with "social issues" except the pure enjoyment of singing - that was Woody's purpose for writing his kids' songs. Also, Nora may have produced this video, but Arlo narrated it. I knew I wanted the video as soon as I saw it as a teaching tool to kids who live in Oklahoma and a wonderful introduction to Oklahoma History. Too many people try to intellectualize a gifted man who served his purpose on earth - to sing and make people happy. He also had some issues - personal and social, but children love his songs anyway espcially "This Land is Your Land". It is a joy to hear the giggles, squeals, and the singing along with this video.

This is by far an unsung. Hero of children's songs, Woody Guthrie! The cartoon maker(name?) is also an unsung hero of amazing cartoons!!!!! Great for use in class for students of all ages! It's a work of art!
