Robogabriel : Wow, I had no idea John Dilworth (Courage The Cowardly Dog) animated this. Even more surprised, my Intro To Animation Teacher Doug Compton was one of the other animators! Small world!

joshtimasprime : I cried out of nostalgia.

22Tesla : I have this video on VHS still from when I was three, and that was almost 20 years ago. *blissfull sigh as a tear rolls down my cheek* I watched this video so many times I can recite it by heart and I still remember the songs too. Those were the good old days. How I miss them dearly

Deorse : Holly cow I haven't seen this movie in over 15 years. I was in the second grade when I first watched this movie. Thanks for that trip down memory lane.

Jerry Rudd : The steam shovel in the cartoon was named to sound like the name of the real company that built the real ones, The Marion Steam Shovel Company of Marion Ohio, Mary Anne/ Marion.

RockyRailroad Animation : I consider this to be more of a tragedy because Mary Anne's boiler being put under the constant stress of being in steam continuously, never seeing the sun again, being fed poorer quality coal, she is completely immobile, and is forced to continuously produce sufficient steam to keep the radiators of the town hall working. They could have dug a trench at a 22° angle, and gotten the shovel out instead, but that one kid showed up and decided that buying a kerosene heater was too big of a stretch. I read way too deep into this, but still, they did that earlier in the story with the skyscraper, and in real life to an extent.

MeU Bunny : this made me cry when i was little

Lynn Stoller : My favorite song was "No Steam Shovels Wanted!"

Kohala Iron Works : This is the 1st time I saw an animated movie of this Old Favorite of mine... My Mom read this to me in 1961...I was 4 years old. When I became a man I joined the Operating Engineers Union Local 3 (Northern California & Hawai`i)... This story sealed my fate to be a Heavy Equipment Operator...

Poopiter LikeJupiter : 13 people had to pay for the cellar.

Marco Silva : I don't know why but this just popped into my head at work and I had to look it up. Talk about nostalgia, loved the no steam shovels wanted song was my fave but looking back, why did she become a furnace at the end just because some kid said so.
