Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: High Hopes (S Cahn, J Van Heusen)
Well, Merilee, in a few weeks 9 years will have passed since you asked about High Hopes. A woman named Bennye Gatteys sang the song and there was a cartoon of the ants pulling those rubber plants down, and a ram butting the dam. I remember that show very well but I did not remember Ms. Gatteys' name.

I was thinking about the song tonight (I used to sing it with my young son), I did a google search, and found some information on tv.com. The show aired on August 14, 1959...that both seems like yesterday in some ways and yet in others, an eon ago.

I think it is rare to find another person who remembered seeing that particular Capt. K. show and that neat version of 'High Hopes'
