I didn't always agree with Roger Ebert's opinions, but I always found them well-defined and argued with passion. More than just a great film critic, he was a brilliant writer.
The above clip is obviously not a peanut butter commercial, but the opening song to one of Disney's Merlin Jones movies with Tommy Kirk, The Monkey's Uncle. It's one of my favorite songs from any Disney film ever, live or animated, and it's one of my very favorite Beach Boys songs, too. Annette's a huge factor in both of those decisions.
