Tubby The Tuba By Danny Kaye

My Mum had a record (78) of Danny Kaye reading the story of Tubby The Tuba. We used to listen to it when we were kids any chance we would get. Even though it was damaged we still loved it. I remember it with the skips and repeats as though they were a normal part of the story. I found an mp3 of it!! When I listen to it now it sounds strange without the repeated parts 🙂

I’m putting together a CD for Mum with the Tubby mp3, some pics and video clips of other popular Danny Kaye works. Are there any other Danny Kaye fans? My favourite Danny Kaye movie is The Court Jester. I also like Hans Christian Andersen and Merry Andrew too.

    The youtube.com video here is a clip from the Danny Kaye movie The Court Jester. I should’ve put the clip at the bottom of this blog post instead of at the top like it is. Oh well it’s published now and I’m not going to edit it. 🙂

    Thanks for this, I also listened to Danny Kaye when I was young.

    Also in future when referencing Youtube please include a link to the Youtube page for the video, that way people who don’t have flash but who do have youtube-dl can easily get it.
