Baby Elephant Walk is a tune written in 1961 by composer Henry Mancini, for the 1962 release of the movie Hatari! The composer combines brass instruments (including repeated blasts from the tuba) and woodwind elements to convey the sense of a toddler that is large and plodding, but nonetheless filled with the exuberance of youth. The catchy, jazzy simplicity of the tune has made it one of Mancini’s most popular works, prompting its appearance on nearly twenty later compilation and best of/greatest hits albums.

So here is the original clip a sequence from the 1962 movie with John Wayne and Elsa Martinelli
