Can you believe it?...the Oklahoma City Zoo is launching an "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" exhibit on November 20th, 2011. They've invited me to come help memorialize Matilda and the unique way she found her way to the Oklahoma City Zoo via the Christmas song I recorded in 1953 when I was only 10 years old. If you live in or around Oklahoma City, come enjoy the grand opening of this fun exhibit. See you there!

We had a great time singing with you today. Our 8 and 10 year olds were thrilled to meet you !

I was born in fall of 1953. Your song has been a hit with all of our grandchildren and the young ones all want Hippos for Christmas. Here we are in June and my almost 3 year old granddaughter sits with the iPad and plays the hippo song from every artist and kid that has It up on you tube. Thanks for all the fun for so many years, and I hope God continues to bless you and yours!
