An Experiment

Mickey Mouse in Spanish
Tony has got Mickey Mouse on the brain as the expression goes.  He just can't get enough of it.  And he begs so much for it, that he can pronounce the words "Mickey Mouse" quite properly, which gets me to thinking.  What if he watches Double M in Spanish?  Could he pick up on some Spanish too?  Spanish always sounds cool to me, even though the methods of social organization of Spanish people leave something to be desired.  Having a kid that could speak Spanish seems a cool idea.

And it just so happened that last night when I, at Tony's beckoning, put the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD into the player, the menu showed it had a Spanish audio option.  I choose it and hoped for the best.  But Tony seemed puzzled and was hoping to use the English vocabulary he had picked up from the MM shows already.

So much for that idea.
