ORIGINAL LP SLEEVE NOTE: Sometimes people ask me to name my favorite animal. Well, I honestly find it very difficult. Animals are so like people. There are nice ones, not such nice ones and now and again some rather difficult ones. To me a Zoo is rather like a small town where a lot of different people live and they are all up to something. I am sure that you all know people like Harum Scarum the cockatoo. He is really a very nice person but he never thinks before he does anything and that often lands him in trouble. But Hooter the elephant always thinks before he puts one foot in front of the other and never puts a foot wrong. Then there is Lulu the seal who finds life a bit tearful now and again and Sidesplitter the Laughing Jackass who laughs a great deal and doesn't know what on earth he's laughing at. I spend quite a lot of time with them all and I listen to everything they say, and if people tell you animals can't talk don't you believe it. Of course you've got to listen very carefully and listen for a long time, and if you listen long enough you're sometimes not sure whether Bubbles the hippopotamus really said what you thought he said or whether you imagined it. So I just pass on to you what my Zoo pals have said to me or what I thought they said. Johnny Morris
