    Jim, great quiz, as ever, but Q13: Isn’t that Dumbo as opposed to Jungle Book??

  2. It was Jungle Book !1967) – the Beatles were going to do the voices but Lennon refused. The vultures sang “That’s What Friends Are For” but it didn’t sound like a Beatles song – more like a barbershop quartet. Check the trivia for Jungle Book on IMDB. But you made me doubt myself so I checked.
    Glad you enjoyed the quiz.

  3. I see another quiz question here!
