Olee, Olee, Ocean Free

“Olee, Olee, Ocean Free!” Remember that magic cry when you ran to touch home at the end of a tag, at the end of recess? Well, in a way, that’s what we’re doing today. We’re taking a recess from Recess! after eight years on the air and over 2000 programs. We won’t be gone forever, though. Recess! will be taking different forms on our website, which will still be: And online in the future, we’ll continue doing Recess-like programs that will provide reviews, commentaries, and information, as well as audio and video documentaries and multi-media exhibitions on subjects related to children’s culture.


That’s Thumper the Rabbit talking to Bambi’s mother in the beautiful opening sequence of Walt Disney’s 1942 film when all the gentle animals of the forest come to see the newborn deer.

This pensive music was composed by the famous harpist Marisa Robles. It’s from her Narnia Suite, which she wrote in 1991 — over a decade before the release of the movie based on C. S. Lewis’s classic, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
