This could go anywhere. It's animals. It's Disney. It's got a snopes.com sighting in it.

The anti-lemming smear campaign must stop.

I'm sorry about the lemmings, but I'm really happy these films are coming out on DVD now. It's just too bad they won't have that classroom film-projector whir in the background. [Smile]

A wild thought just struck me: I wonder if the filmmakers didn't intend this film as a bit of propaganda, a political commentary? Perhaps a hint of warning against Communism -- or perhaps (I smile to think of this) against anti-Communist hysteria. "Once in motion, none stops to ask why. Instead, a kind of compulsion seizes each tiny rodent. And carried along by an unreasoning hysteria, each falls into step ... "
