Fawn's Animal Group Song is a song sung by Fawn in the Disney Fairies short, Tink'n About Animals. When Fawn mentions to Tinker Bell, Rosetta, Iridessa, Silvermist, and Vidia that a group of crocodiles is called a float, Tinker Bell asks Fawn to share more knowledge of animal groups. So, Fawn promptly pulls out her Animal Group Songbook.
Geese live in a gaggle and coyotes in a pack
And a group of jellyfish is called a smack
Here's a rookery of seals and an army made of ants
By the seashore, you can find a gulp of cormorants
Zeal of zebras, hover of crows,
Lions are prides, as everyone knows
There are quivers of cobras and shivers of sharks
And an exaltation is a group of larks!
Tinker Bell: Wow, she really rehearsed this.
Fawn: You've got prickles full of porcupines, consortiums of crabs,
And a loveliness of ladybugs just looks so fab!
A kaleidoscope of butterflies, a scurry full of squirrels,
And this bloat of hippopotami are happy girls
Circus of puffins, gaze of raccoons,
Stand of flamingoes, troop of baboons
A group of bucks becomes a clash,
But rhinoceros can make an even bigger crash!
(Fairies: Whoa! Oof!)
Now, here's the one and only NeverBeast!
Tinker Bell: NeverBeast?
Fawn: Never mind. Tell you later.
So, kangaroos can form a mob, iguanas are a mess,
Even friendly ravens are an unkindness
Goldfish are a troubling, pandas are embarassments,
But a wise old bunch of owls form a parliament
Shrewdness of apes and mischief of rats,
Business of ferrets and cauldron of bats
And although it's strange credulity,
These wildebeest are an implausibility!
- Fawn channels the "Circle of Life" scene in The Lion King by holding up a lion cub that resembles baby Simba, and the baboons resemble Rafiki.
- The song is set to the tune of the folk song "Turkey in the Straw."
- The original version was tentatively called "Animal Babies" and set to the tune of "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain". It initially featured a turtle instead of a crocodile. This version was scrapped, even though a storyboard and vocals were completed.
- Unlike other shorts, there is a book based on this short.
