I’ve been watching some of my favorite childhood movies lately–with and without my children–and have come to the sad realization that some of them have not withstood the test of time. Mary Poppins, happily, is not one of them. I popped it in the DVD player and felt some surprise that I had not already introduced my children to the movie.
I’d never watched the movie in Spanish before, though I remember my friends and I trying to say “supercalifragilísticoespialidoso” as fast as we could when I was little. My boys and I watched it in Spanish and though I kept wanting to sing along in English, I was surprised at how much I liked the Spanish version of the songs and appreciated the creative lyrics, like “Al compás” for “Step in Time.”
I loved experiencing the Blu-Ray version on my huge TV–I definitely never watched it that way as a child. That was a huge treat, as was watching my children finally get to experience “una de las películas favoritas de Mamá cuando era niña”.
We’re giving away one copy of Disney’s Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition DVD to one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave us a comment telling us your favorite Marry Poppins song to sing along to. Then, enter the Rafflecopter below.

The nanny ad song. I know it in both English and Spanish.
Oh, I am SO in!! We just introduced the kids to Mary Poppins. It’s their new favorite–undoubtedly! I love to sing “spoonful of sugar”. My kids really want us to sing the “stay awake” bedtime song. I caved in and sang it to the in English. I need the Spanish lyrics!!! Even better, I would LOVE the DVD so we could watch the whole thing in Spanish!
Mary Poppins was my sister’s and my favorite movies for a long time as children even when it already was an “old” movie. Now I want to share it with my daughter!
My favorite songs are Spoon full of sugar and Dupercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
