Singing Chickens

The early Disney films had many characters that seemed to have disappeared from history. One was Horace Horsecollar - a Goofy-like horse - and another was Clara Cluck, a singing chicken.
You don't see many singing chickens around nowadays, so it was with some interest I noted the news item at about animated chickens singing against keeping Battery hens caged up. Unfortunately the news item doesn't have a video to do with it.

But another news item does. Kentucky Fried Chicken has made the record books by having the first company logo that can be seen from Outer Space
You can see a pixilated version of it being built. No doubt to attract passing aliens to pop in for a quick bite. Let's hope that the aliens don't resemble chickens.

Though nothing to do with animation, but much to do with singing, I noted that Dophins can learn to sing, which means both vocalisation and rhythm. Apparantly the only other mammal than humans to be able to do so.
though Whales can sing, apart from the famous Disney one, they aint got rhythm.
It ocurred to me that with the computerised Air Guitar (yesterdays Blog) a dophin might be fitted with a Water guitar, and move around to accompany itself singing.
It may be a bit fanciful, but as I intend being reincarnated as a Dolphin, I feel it is something that might usefully be pursued.
