I had a memory of Bugs Bunny singing this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsZRqAR1SBU It took me like 3 seconds to find it on youtube.
I was thinking about how politically incorrect it was. You probably couldn't use it today. I'm surprised the cartoon is not banned.
I think I remember singing it in school 50 years ago as part of music class.

At 24 fps, you see dwarfs fighting goblins. At 48, you see men running around in silly costumes. :)

"Go woke, go broke."
About 11 years ago this show was epic. It had fantastic writing. However, it was all downhill from there.
I gave up after one season of Jodie Whittaker. The problem is not the female Doctor, which sounded exciting at first, but the terrible writing. They damaged the show by abandoning cannon and changing the history by inserting wokeness. They claimed that the original Doctor was female, which destroys the entire history of the series going back to the year 1960!
They can only fix this with some sort of reboot. It was all a dream. A nightmare.

Good video. Carl Sagan also liked to smoke marijuana.
Star Wars starts out like a fairy tale, "A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...". It should not be taken literally.

You may have seen this before. The first 2m15s show Carl Sagan criticizing Star Wars for it's white-centric view of space in the future. He explained, although there are many non-white (alien) creatures in Star Wars, the white skinned people rule the universe. He also jokes that the Wookiee received no medal in the end even though he contributed in the fighting, etc.At 2:15m a quote from his last book (1995) is shown. It hits the nail on the head. He describes what will happen in America 25 years before it happened.

For most people, film is obsolete. I remember having a camera as a kid and there was something magical about cameras before technology came along.
As best as I can recall, I didn't really bother with cameras from my college days onward. It wasn't till sometime in my early 40's I got the most primitive digital camera possible, that only took 640x480 pictures, which matched some early computer monitor resolutions. I actually had fun with this camera despite the pretty low quality. Eventually, mobile phones could take pictures even before smartphones.
In 2008, I got an iPhone 3G which had a 2 megapixel camera.
In 2010, I got an iPhone 4 which had a 5-megapixel camera.
In 2012, I got an iPhone 5, which had an 8-megapixel camera. I still own this phone. The metal bands around the edge of this phone made it pretty tough, which allowed it to survive a pretty big accidental drop onto the pavement. This will be relevant below...
In 2014, I got an iPhone 6+ which also has an 8-megapixel camera. When I tried to participate in an Apple battery replacement program, something went wrong with the phone, so they gave me a free replacement which I still have.
Years later I got an iPhone 6S+ on a Black Friday sale. It has a 12-megapixel camera. Because the wi-fi died on in, I bought another one of these on another Black Friday to replace it, which is still my primary phone.
Today I dropped my iPhone 6s+ and the screen cracked, but I managed to get it repaired the same day for $89.
