Today I present three Merry Melodies...the first three of which were commissioned by the Alfred P Sloan Foundation to teach folks the joys of the capitalist/free market system...
I swear that the first one came up naturally in conversation after school yesterday...and I had to go hunting it down to prove that it existed. Here's "Yankee Dood It".
It's from Wikipedia - of course - that I learned about the Alfred P Sloan Foundation connection...which lead me to "Heir Conditioned". (The only embed I could find comes from a Russian website, and connection is pretty slow. If you're interested in watching it, click play, pause it, let it load, and come back in a couple of minutes.)
I also found out that the Sloan Foundation's third commission was "By Word of Mouse".

When I mentioned these three cartoons to Doug Studer - my neighboring teacher - to explain my reference to him perhaps leaving his broken shoes out over night for the elves to fix, one of his students mentioned the cartoon "I Love to Singa" as his favorite, so I close with that one.
And, honestly, it's the most entertaining of the three because it doesn't have a thing to do with economics.
