Istanbul was Constantinople

We were all watching the "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" last night for the very first time. The Short One was entranced (you may recall that we are mad about The Mouse in this house), and, presently, H. turned to me and said, "You know, that sounds like 'They Might Be Giants' singing the theme song." Sure enough, when the credits rolled at the end of the episode, it turned out to be one of our favorite groups. I don't remember Mickey Mouse being so hip when we were kids. Music for the whole family!

I couldn't find an authorized video of the Mickey Mouse theme song to embed here (although you can hear it on the webpage for the show), but I did find this one of the single "Apartment 4", which is from the They Might Be Giants' kids album, "Here Come the 123s".
