He/She fell down and bumped his/her head, Along comes the crocodile as quiet as can be Characters from the 'Five Little Monkeys' actually seem to be loosely based on an old Soviet cartoon about five mischievous young monkeys living in a zoo with other anthropomorphic animals, and the trouble they cause to their ever-exhausted but ingenious mum and everyone else. One little monkey swinging in a tree, They should remove that particular monkey family song to show that they have changed.
Parents are the real issue reading too much into a simple cartoon. It is extremely racist. I thank the author of this blog for pointing out the origins of some of these seemingly harmless songs. I am sure the creators found their product very unexpectedly popular outside of their own country (where it was marketed as series for early years English acquisition) and were mortified by how the global community read the message behind the characters. Dave and ava has by far been the best in my opinion at being catchy educational and fun for my little one and many others... Why pick apart somthing out of thier control?

These early versions of "Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed" used the "n word" plural or "darkies" as referents for Black people instead of the word "monkey". Opinions may come and go. eight little monkeys jumping over the gate, one met death, his only fate. "Look Mr. Crocodile, you can't catch me!" Im sorry but I dont find any trance of racist subliminal, in fact there was a baby African American doll being held by the caucasian baby girl.

Teasing Mr. Alligator "Can't catch me!" Hi Azizi, I believe they have been including her in most of the recent ones. You tube must take it down with the apples and banana song as well.
I find their videos blatantly racist! It's a cartoon. As a parent of color I feel that these nursery rhymes can be used to promote white supremacy in a very deceptive way. The children sing it along with the gestures that mimic the words of the poem. I plan to publish a pancocojams post that highlights all of the song fragments that are included in that 1935 book and will add the link to that post in this pancocojams comment section.Thanks again, Anonymous!

"Put those monkeys right to bed! The five little monkeys are jumping, and one of them falls off the bed.

Then all of a sudden there is the monkey family that definitely looks like it's suppose to be a human-animal cross. I was so appalled by it.

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed! With regard to my comment to Nyx Qualls dated February 13, 2016 at 2:12 PM,I should have written "drawn to look like stereotypical images of Black people" instead of "drawn to look like Black people". I turned off that Dave and Ava series because of the way that they drew the monkeys in that five little monkeys cartoon and my granddaughter hasn't been allowed to watch that series since that time.

The children who populate your classes want to know how this song came to be, and they will learn that they may sing a number of different versions of the song that you may not have heard before.
