The Coyote’s Lament

Posted by Ken in Ruminations (July 14, 2008 at 6:05 am)


Every so often, a slice of my pop culture childhood submerged deep in my subconscious decides to bob to the surface, and drive me mad.

Like an itch in desperate need of a scratch, the latest snippet was the refrain to a Disney cartoon called THE COYOTE’S LAMENT. Well, it wasn’t exactly a cartoon - it was actually linking material used to string together a batch of Pluto cartoons for the early 1960’s WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISNEY. The newly -produced linking material featured a multi-generational trio of coyotes - a grandfather, father, and small son - who are reflecting back on those cartoons in the context of the coyote’s disappearance in the West, as man moved in and brought civilization. Our trio is serenaded by a quartet of coyotes - voiced by the Sons of the Pioneers - with the following tune:

“Yip yip yip yowl
yip yip yip yay
We howl all night and we prowl all day…
Yip yip yip yowl
yip yip yip yee
You made our lives plain misery…”


The problem is that this special has never been released on DVD. Or VHS. I used to watch it constantly on my family’s RCA videodisc player. Yes, the doomed system that was a glorified record player.

So, what happens when you’ve got an itch to scratch? You drag the 25-year-old player out of the attic, along with the disc, and you transfer the special to DVD.

That’s what you do.

Oh, and then you make an mp3 of the song.

Yeah. That’s what you do.

HERE’S THE MP3 of the linking bits, slightly edited to condense it all down a bit. Hopefully it scratches an itch for you, too.

    thank you sooooooooooooooo much
    i’ve been looking for this movie for ages

  2. penny Says:

    and the link wont

  3. penny Says:

    can i buy this dvd from u or anyone else..would love to see it again

  4. Ken Says:

    This is AWESOME!!

    I SOOOO remember this from when Disney Channel ran this once or so. I can’t believe that night I had the chance to record it I didn’t do it.

    I hate that I did. I still remember this song deep in my mind.

    Are there any reports of DVD’s coming out for maybe this episode.

  5. Joel Strewth Says:

    Man, listening to that mp3 takes me back.

    I remember watching this on Disney Channel back in 1998 - God, has it been that long? - and, after seeing it a second time later that summer, I never saw it again, not even clips of it on YouTube.

    All I can say is, thank you, and, to quote what the Nostalgia Critic considers the second most overused montage song of all time, I hope you had the time of your life.

    P.S. Do you think you could make a copy of that special for me, please? And while you’re at it, do you think you can throw in the “immigration musical” episode of Happy Days if you have it? ;)

  6. sammy Says:

    please tell me where i can hear this song from yesteryear

  7. mike southam Says:

    How extraordinary ! This tune has been running around the back of my head for 40 years or so. I almost thought that I had imagined it. Thank you so much for bringing back part of my (australian) childhood.I must have watched this in the early 60’s.I am now 54 and it has influenced my thinking on environmental matters to this day.I doubt the creators realised they were being so subversive. Thanks again. Mike

  8. kfayesmomma Says:

    my Father and I love this episode and have looked everywhere for it is there any way to purchase acopy of this from you??!!

  9. Tom OGorman Says:

    Like several of the above posts, i remember watching this little snippet on videodisc as a child. my brothers and sisters still reference the movie all the time. i’d love to be able to sit down with all of them and watch it again. i’d be thrilled if i could perhaps buy a copy from you. thanks for posting the mp3, at any rate.

  10. Diana Says:

    Thank you so much for this! It brought tears to my eyes. I’m 55 and from Australia, and I too have been singing this song for about 40 or so years. I never thought I’d actually hear it again. Even now I often find myself bursting into that wonderful long musical howl just for the sheer fun of it. My friends think I’m nuts, but my dog likes it. At least he appreciates good music!

  11. Michelle Says:

    Thank you for posting this. I remember watching this on the video disc like you and have often wondered if I could get it on VHS (or DVD) for my kids to enjoy. In the mean time, I can enjoy the mp3. Thanks!

  12. Leigh Says:

    I would love to own this movie. Do you know anywhere you can buy it? Please let me know.
    Thank You

  13. Sheri Says:

    Do you know where I can get a copy of this movie, Thank you

  14. Marty Says:

    So is it possible to get a copy of this? Thanks

  15. amber Says:

    So awesome. Thanks for providing this! Would love to see it up on YouTube :)

  16. Irina Says:

    I ABSOLUTELY love this cartoon! My dad and I used to watch this when he rented it on the old laserdisc. We never saw it again. I have searched everywhere online and can’t find it. I would really love to be able to get a copy for my dad, it would mean a lot to him. Let me know if you would be willing to sell a copy. Thanks for the memories anyway!

  17. Carter P Says:

    This is so great! Our autistic 11 year is just crazy about this. If you ever decide to post the video make copies available please let us know!

  18. J-Fed Says:

    My childhood right there!! Thank you so much.

  19. rhonda w Says:

    i have been looking all over for this….we had it on disc when my oldest son was little and we watched it over and over and never got tired of it….if you know where i can buy a copy of this i would be grateful…my son and i still laugh and talk about the coyotes and there escapades….thanks for letting me listen.

  20. Adrian Says:

    You have brought back so many memories by posting this song clip THANK YOU!!

  21. Jill Says:

    This is amazing! When I was little, someone taped this for me on VHS and I think I wore out the tape from watching it so much. I remember one scene where Pluto (I think) was eating milk toast. It looked so good, I tried it and found out it’s not all that good. Thanks for posting this!

  22. Larry Says:

    Awesome! As a six year old in 1961, after watching this cartoon, I asked my parents to write to Disney to try to buy a record of this song. Disney replied it wasn’t available and they had no plans to make it available. Almost 50 years later, I’ve found it, thanks to you! GREAT!

  23. Joust Says:

    I too have been looking everywhere for a copy of this special. No luck so far, but if I find it somewhere I’ll come back and share! You would *think* as much response as even this one page has had, that Disney would reconsider taking this one out of the Vault… Lord knows as money hungry as they have become it is unlike them to turn up their noses when people are *offering* to send them money. ;o)

  24. Colleen Says:

    I’ve been looking for this movie for a long time. That same tune has been bouncing around in my head for years. Thanks for posting; I’m smiling from ear to ear listening to it. Would you be willing to share a copy of the movie? cmcquoid78 at hotmail dot com

  25. Sheryl Trout Says:

    Is there any way I could get a copy of the movie?

  26. nyb486 Says:

    This feature goes all the way back to when I was a kid (28 years ago). Like everyone else here I would be beyond delighted to get/purchase a copy, both now from you as well as from Disney whenever they choose to release it. Please write if this is a possibility. Regardless, thank you for the memories.

  27. evon Says:

    OH BOY that ’s awsome !
    Could you pleasepleasePLEASE post the video on youtube or something ? please please please ??

  28. DanaD Says:

    Never seen it before! But love the Pluto shows featuring Bent-Tail! Please, please, please want to see!

  29. greta Pruitt Says:

    I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS FOR EVER!!!! My grandma had a tap with it on it (and donald duck dancing to beat it) Please tell me you are selling copies!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Krista Says:

    Oh WOW we have been looking for this forever!!!! Please put it on youtube!!!

  31. Zip - from MA Says:

    Awesome….just started singing the lyrics to my lady….she thought I was crazy until I came across your MP3.

    You saved me from the men in white coats!

    Thanks many times over!!!


  32. ckandrew Says:
