When I was a little girl, this cartoon was a personal favourite. My grandmaman was a milliner which if you're not familiar is a hat designer. She was a lead designer for a hat factory in Montreal during the 20s and 30s and also opened her own hat shop. She pursued her career prior to finding love and marriage. She began married life later and while she was only 4'10", she was a strong force like her mother. Oh and she loved to sing operatically.
When I was a little girl I would go into her bedroom where there stood an electric felt hat form always with a hat.
My mother used to sing songs to me every day during my entire time growing up. She just sang all the time and still does from time to time. This was a song she sang to be prior to seeing the cartoon and so when I did see it, I already knew I’d love it. I loved the story and sentiment. As much as it seems fitting for Valentine’s, it reminds me of Easter time… So with that said, Happy Easter!
Here is my grandmaman during her youth.
