Happy Time Chorus and Orchestra – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Other Kiddie Favorites album art
Children’s classics in story and song like ‘Peter Pan’, ‘Pinocchio’, ‘Snow White & The 7 Dwarfs’ are beautifully created with all the charm and fantasy children love, and parents and educators approve. From the children’s cinema there is the joyous ‘Born Free’, the animal hi-jinks of the beloved Dr. Dolittle, the freshness of ‘The Sound Of Music’. All the Mother Goose favorites, the animal stories, and of course the legendary Puff! Mary Poppins too! A delightful combination of enjoyment and learning awaits the young listener in these happiest of records.
The claim on the back cover reads “Happiness is a Happy Time Record”. Accompanied by a little couple (Peter Pan & Wendy Darling?), it might look like a nod to Kim Casali’s “Love Is …” comic strip, which used Crayonette since day one. There is a catch, though: the comic strip was first published on January 5, 1970. Discogs and the Internet Archive date this album to 1969 – and Happy Time Records were launched years earlier. So … is it the other way around? Or just coincidence?
“Happy Time” is in another script typeface with horizontal contrast: Gonzales Jeanette.
