"I love to singa..." 8x10 Oil on linen board SOLD

I wonder if anyone remembers this cartoon? I was a cartoon watching fiend when I was a child and this was old even back then. It is about a family of owls. The mother owl is teaching her little owlettes to sing and play classical music, but this little guy wanted to sing jazz. The rest of the family was horrified and the little owl kept getting into trouble and ran away from home. He eventually got on the radio and sang his little ditty, "I want to singa... about the moona and the juna and the springa....." His family missed him back at home and were so excited to hear him that they started to dance to his song. This silly cartoon really resonates with me and it was fun to paint. SOLD
