#AtoZ Letter Z

This is such a Happy Song & Movie to End the Challenge With. I still sing it today to my little Sammy and he smiles!

**I was reaching for Z**
Released in 1946

In 1947, Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah won best song at the Academy Awards

Song of the South is a 1946 American live-action/animated musical film produced by Walt Disney and released by RKO Radio Pictures, based on the Uncle Remus stories collected by Joel Chandler Harris. It was Disney's first feature film using live actors, who provide a sentimental frame story for several animated segments. The film depicts the character Uncle Remus, presumably a former slave, cheerfully relating to several children, including the film's protagonist, the folk tales of the adventures of anthropomorphic Br'er Rabbit and his friends. The film's song "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" won the 1947 Academy Award for Best Song, is frequently used as part of Disney's montage themes, and has become widely used in popular culture. The film inspired the Disney theme park attraction Splash Mountain.
The film's depiction of black former slaves, and of race relations in Reconstruction-Era Georgia, has been controversial since its original release, with a number of critics — at the time of its release and in later decades — describing it as racist.[4] Consequently it has never been released in its entirety on home video in the United States.

WOW!!! I made it, although plenty of cheating was involved, I hope you'll all forgive me.

Thank you for Another year of the A to Z 


Congratulations to all the participants. And a 

big Thank You to Arlee Bird for creating this 

fun Challenge!


  1. This is the first time I've visited your blog and I've really enjoyed it. I too managed to reach Z in the A to Z Challenge. It was a "challenge" and I have a real sense of achievement seeing it through to the end.

  2. A very appropriate end. I remember Zip-a-Dee- Doo- Dah well.
    Congratulations on another successful Challenge.

  3. It won best song? I didn't know that.

  4. What a cute idea for the final Z post, Cathrina. Good job for this entire challenge.

  5. It's sweet to think of you singing this song to your little cutie. :)
    Congrats on another great Challenge.

  6. I know the song, but never saw the movie. Congrats on getting through the Challenge!
