Thread: Old Disney Channel: Music Videos

    What I'd like to find out is if anybody remembers them and what the names of them were? To be more specific, I think they were part of a segment from the old Disney Channel called "Music Break." They would usually air sometime during the morning and early afternoon. Here are some of the ones that I remember:

    -One music video was about a dinosuar living in a neighborhood or something like that.

    -Another one was about a kid who was afraid to get a haircut. I think it was called "What You Need Is A Haircut."

    -Another one had a black guy singing (his words were jumbled as he sang) and the camera would focus on kids growing up I think.

    Those are the only ones I can remember. Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone else remembers them, and if they're on the internet somewhere cause I'd like to see them again.

        No, it wasn't DTV. The music videos were live action music videos and I believe they were part of a segment called 'Music Break'.

            Yeah, the Disney Channel used to have holiday DTV specials that showed disney cartoons with popular songs as background music. There was a Valentine one that i remember the most.

                I do. It had nothing to do with DTV. DTV was scenes from disney charactor tunes put to popular music, put together into a video.

                These were videos like you randomly see on Noggin now. Kind of like the Laurie Berkner and Dan Zanes type.

                There was "I need a haircut, I really need a haircut haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaair cuuuuuuuuuuut"

                The Man Who Ran Away With The Moon

                That dinosaur one

                If you can't find a reason to be happy(the girl at a bbq that spills juice on her homework, etc)

                Brother For Sale by the olson twins

                Locomotion and a bunch of other ones.

                And it wasn't simply mad about the mouse either, as that was a movie with random video clips.

                  The Man Who Ran Away With The Moon - Foote/Buckingham/Greenwood
                  This song is also a music video and is seen on the Disney and Family Channel throughout North America.

                  Chorus

                  Where oh where oh where
                  has the moon gone
                  Where oh where oh where
                  has the moon gone

                  I'm going to tell you a tale
                  about a man who ran away with moon
                  He took it home, He put it in his living room
                  He put the moon way up on a shelf
                  He tried to keep it all for himself

                  No one knew about the man who ran away with the moon
                  I guess he figured he could see it in the afternoon
                  But now the night is blacker than black
                  Darker than dark we gotta get the moon back

                  Chorus

                  But one simple thing this man forgot
                  The moon had it's very own things it did attract
                  and one night when the moon was bright
                  it must have been a full moon that night

                  Because he looked out the windows
                  and the dogs were barking
                  In his driveway strange cars were parking
                  The taps turned on all by himself
                  The moon was grinning from up on his shelf
                  The cats were meowing and the owls were hooting
                  The whole neighborhood was uprooting
                  He when out on his porch, he saw a cow on his roof
                  He looked to the side, he thought he saw a werewolf

                  Everybody walking around thinking what was it's fate?
                  And all the scientists in the world they did speculate
                  The man thought it was a rare antique
                  He used it like a lamp so to speak

                  Now this man he was really afraid
                  He went back in his house and he quickly pulled down the shade
                  He went and took the moon to the tallest hill
                  He threw it back in the sky with all his will
                  and the moon his behind a cloud and slid into tommorow

                  Chorus

                      Anyway, I think one of the ones you are talking about is a bobby mcfarrin one. I'm still looking for more, if I find them, I will add them to this post.

                      edited to add, here is the bobby mcferrin one.

                              I used to love the Disney Channel "Music Breaks". Thanks for post these. I haven't seen those in years. Bobby McFerrin's "Baby" was the one that I do remember back when I was in Pennsylvania at John Ryan's house during the summer of 1992 or 1993.

                                It's funny, I always hated the haircut one, it drove me nuts. Now I want to see it again

                                  I don't remember "Music Break". But I do remember DTV. There was also DTV2 in the 90's. And I do remember The Monkees singing "Daydream Believer". Here is the video: DTV - The Monkees - Daydream Believer
