Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Johnny Johnny Jump Up (1969)

The Cattanooga Cats came up with a novel way of teaching kids about nursery rhymes with this ditty, "Johnny Johnny Jump Up".  Bear in mind that the Cats' songs were produced, and I think also written by Mike Curb, who was one busy fellow that year, as his Congregation also had something to do with the themes to two other ABC freshman series, Hot Wheels & Skyhawks. Coincidentally, radio legend Casey Kasem, the voice of Groovy, the Cats' drummer, worked on those other two shows as well.
