While at Grandma and Grandpa’s house last week, we watched The Lady and the Tramp with the kids. Hey, that’s a good movie!
They had it on VHS—old school!
The score by Oliver Wallace is charming, and when the main “playful” theme for Lady came in, I was like, wait, I know this melody. It starts at 0:27 of the above.
But I hadn’t seen the film, or heard the soundtrack, since I was a kid myself.
Then I remembered...
And I see that the top comment on the Pee-Wee video is all about the similarity.
My question to film-score land: Has this come up before? Did Danny do it on purpose or did he just accidentally quote something from the recesses of memory?
Either is fine, really. Just curious!
