      • Spirit: No pencil is sharp enough to draw as fine as you can think, and no paper large enough to hold your imagination. In fact, it is only in the mind that we can conceive infinity.

      • Spirit: So from these eggheads, the Pythagoreans, with their mathematical formula, came the basis of our music of today.

    • NOTES (4)

        Like all early Disney shows, there was a plug for Disney features in movie theaters. This show had a promo for Babes in Toyland featuring Annette Funicello.

      • To demonstrate the effect Technicolor had on movies, Walt shows clips from "Flowers and Trees" and "Fantasisa".

      • A new character joins the show: Ludwig Von Drake, who will remain a fixture on the show until the 1980's.
