Midnight, Squeaky and jeebus!

I find this clip bizarre. This is from the old kids TV show from the mid-1950s -- Andy's Gang. It shows Andy's tortured cat, Midnight, and Squeaky the hamster singing the dirge from hell. It is the most lifeless, strange and deadening version of "Jesus Loves Me" ever.

I loved this show when I was seven. There was no other choice, of course, but still. It excited me and got me up early on Saturday mornings. In fact, I'd always get up too early and have to sit through the damn US Farm Report at 5 am. But Andy's Gang was coming on! Wow, did I love this incredibly stupid show. I can still remember sitting in front of the TV in my pajamas, waiting impatiently for it to begin.

Anyway, I had to post this because it's so strange. The clip is long but the song is the first thing on it. Weird!
