There’s something enchanting about these localized versions of Roger Miller’s “Oo De Lally” from Disney’s Robin Hood from 1973. While all of these videos were found on YouTube, each was created by a different person around the world. (Bonus points if you can find the
Japanese, Chinese, and Norwegian versions. Got ’em all! Thanks, everyone.) April 7: Added Hebrew, but YouTube removed the Arabic version… Anyone have it? November 12: Added Finnish and Danish, but still missing Arabic.
August 1, 2012: These keep getting knocked offline, but this video captured 16 languages into a single video.
Italian, “Urca Tirulero”
Arabic, “Ya hallouli ya hallawa” (removed by YouTube, anyone have a copy?)
Russian, “Tirly Tirly Truly Truly”
French, “Oh de Lali”
Dutch, “Jodeladie Jodelee”
Spanish, “¡Que día más feliz!”
Japanese, “オー・ディ・レイリー” (thx, Grant!)
Chinese (thx, chimara!)
April 7: Thanks to Tommynka, here’s the Hebrew version. This list is now comprehensive, with every version of the video ever recorded. Thanks, Internet!
November 12: Two more, courtesy of Tobias in the comments:
August 15, 2011: Fixed the broken ones I could find. If any more disappear, this video archives 16 of them, including the missing Arabic version.
