Family Night!

Fun with Jiminy Cricket

If you are looking for some family night entertainment, watch Jiminy Cricket.

The other night, Luke and I were sitting around talking with Rory, and somehow, we got on the subject of Jiminy Cricket’s “I’m No Fool.” Luke and I were singing the old familiar song from our early childhood. Rory thought we were crazy. We were all laughing so hard.

Since I had the computer very close at hand, I decided to search up the beloved memories of the past. (Luke and I both remember having to watch these films every year in school from Kindergarten through 3rd grade–late 60’s, early 70’s). Guess what I found on YouTube!

Rory and Luke piled in next to me on the couch, and we watch all the “I’m No Fool” episodes we could find. Your teenager will have a blast laughing over these adorable, yet educational, videos. This was really quite a generation connector–linking our past with the technology of the present.

The short, 8 to 10 minute, films were made back in the 1950’s by Disney, and shown on the original Mickey Mouse Club television program. I’ve put the films together in a playlist for your viewing enjoyment…

If you are looking for a fun, laughter-filled family night with your teenager, I would highly recommend Jiminy Cricket’s, “I’m No Fool” series. And, for those of you with little ones, these are super cute and teach great lessons. There is even another Jiminy Cricket series that teaches about the human body. Homeschooler’s resource?

  1. I grew up watching films at school featuring Jiminy Cricket! “I’m no fool, no sirree, I’m gonna live to be 103 . . .” Thanks for bringing back some warm and fuzzy memories. Love it!!

  2. I love this! It sounds like you had so much fun!! Thanks for linking it at CMB. I can’t wait to share this with my daughter for our grandson. Or maybe I’ll just save the idea and watch them with him when he’s here.

  3. These cartoons are a little before my time. 😉 The before-my-time stuff seems to be the programming I most prefer my Little to watch, if anything.
    Thanks for hosting the #homematters party and for inviting me to co-host for another month.

  4. Great clips! I love old Disney stuff. My kids actually do too. They were just watching The Three Musketeers with Mickey Mouse today. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for also including me in the #HomeMattersParty It’s going to be a great month!

  5. This is great! I don’t have kids of my own, but I still enjoy it when my parents show me things from their childhoods (even though I’m not a kid or teenager anymore by far, lol) And Disney stuff is always a favorite.

  6. Jiminy Cricket is one of my favorite Disney characters. Thanks for reminding me that I have to share him with my girls. Love hosting #HomeMattersParty with you.
