They really got that song thing figured out by the time they opened the Tiki Room: People like SEVERAL DIFFERENT songs, not the same %@$#*!^ song over and over and over again.

Seems more dystopic, if you ask me... but, thank you for triggering a PTSD-like recall of that widely shared, Stephen (Haw)King-ish ride to the very edge of the sane universe. (Is it really a small world, or is that just an Earth-centric delusion?)

What were those Disney folks thinking, anyway? Were they on the same psychotropics that inspired Fantasia? (i.e. on-tropics?)

(I think the drugs were tainted that drove the "Small World" vision, however.)

(I also suspect that Taters is on some kind of a topical steroid...)

I heard once that the suicide rate among "It's A Small World" employees was through the roof.

The creators of The Walking Dead understand all too well the efficacy of repetitive music torture. I'm sure the concept of being trapped on It's A Small World wasn't lost on them.

Easy Street? I bet if they could have gotten away with it, they would have used the Small World song instead.
