Description

Music & lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. Vocals by Lori Lieberman. ABC-TV, 1977
It's interesting to watch this video in light of modern debates on immigration and cultural assimilation. I remember watching this cartoon as a kid and then hearing many years later in school that America was not a "melting pot" after all but in fact a "salad bowl." The debate rages on. Still, it's a memorable tune and an earnest effort to teach children that the United States is a nation of immigrants.
