I want to hear a cricket sing "You are the only animal who can think!"

I'm looking for a Jiminy Cricket mp3 and can't find it anywhere. It's a Disney Sing-a-Long called "You are a Human Animal."

There used to be a YouTube video of this song, but it got a takedown before I could rip it. I am willing to buy the song, but I can't find it anywhere (iTunes, Amazon, etc.). Does anyone have a link to this song, either an mp3 I can purchase or a video I can convert? I found one sketchy version via google video search, but was not able to convert the source. As a reference, the song is featured (briefly) at the beginning of KCRW's Bookworm with Michael Silverblatt. That show also has a song at the outro that sounds like the theme song of the old Mickey Mouse Book Club (Book of the Mouse Club time), but I can't find an mp3 for that either.

I don't know if this helps find an MP3, but the song appears on the out-of-print 3-disc collection The Music of Disney: A Legacy in Song (track 13 on disc 3). Apparently the official title is "You, the Human Animal."

I remember this song. My son loved these Disney Sing Along Song VHS tapes we had, and I am sure it was on one of them. Sadly, I got rid of these tapes a few months ago or I would send it to you. Maybe you can find a copy of the older tapes on ebay. This was around 1994-1996 so it was not on one of the newer versions.

Cliff Edwards was the voice of Jiminy Cricket; I don't know if this link will work, but the song you're looking for [maybe not the right version, though] appears to be track nine on the album Musical Highlights from the Mickey Mouse Club TV Show, available on iTunes.

I have the set DevilsAdvocate references. I think I also have a rip of this LP, which features the song. I'd be happy to send you either or both versions.

Thank you all! File was emailed to me by a mysterious mefi user who wishes to remain anonymous. I love AskMe!

It's on the Disney Jungle Book Sing-a-long DVD. Sorry, that's not an mp3, tho.
