Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls! I see a song. I paint music. I hear color. I touch the rainbow, and the deep spring in the ground. My music talks. My colors dance. Come, listen, and let your imagination see your own song.

  1. For so long I wondered why whenever I really thought hard about the music I listened to I could see colors moving and dancing around. I knew I didn't have synesthesia, but dancing colors and shapes is something that always stuck with me so long as I focused. I was even praised one day for putting such passionate movement in my strokes while creating art and listening to music in class. Now I know where it all came from! I watched these stories and animations obsessively as a child and it's so astounding to realize what an impact they have had on my life. Thank you so much for posting this and letting me relive such wonderful memories!

  2. I was born in Korea and somehow my parents reached to Eric Carl when I was less than 7 years old, perhaps to teach me some basic english. I eventually learned about more than just a hungry caterpillar and a violinist jumping planets to planets…this was a whole new kind of an art. Now I write songs like Eric Carl himself, and I still love and miss these videos. Adorable 😉

  3. When I Was Grow Up, Lived In Manhattan, Ny. This Music Is Like The True Feeling Of Art Musicians For NYC Back In My 1990's As A Kid, It Made ME Feel The Beautiful Music Of Art Feeling As A New Yorker & Music Has More Words Then Speech Words. Very Beautiful Music In My Heart I Can't Stop Crying & Will Treasure This My Life Forever. Thank You Eric Carle ;|,',','

  4. THIS VIDEO AND MUSIC MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE VIOLIN AT THE AGE OF 10 I got a violin at the age of 15 and started learning it now I am 23! <3 thank you for this! This was my inspiration. Can you hug Julian Nott for me <3 thank you for inspiring me and composing such masterpiece. I just wish it was longer <3 I wish I can give you a big hug <3 well here is a virtual one <3 xoxo

  5. When I was about 3 years old, my favourite video to watch at home was 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Stories'.
    My favourite short film on that video was 'I See A Song'. My parents told me that as soon as I watched it, I asked them for a violin. Although I gave up the violin later in life, I picked other instruments along the way.

    Now, I'm finishing my final year of a Jazz performance Degree, but I always wondered why my interest in music was greater than most people that I grew up around. So glad to have watched this when I was a kid.
    It might be why I'm interested in music at all. 🙂

  6. I was finding an Erik Carl's animation that I saw in childhood that black colour man jumping with his violin.
    And finally, I found it! It is so beautiful, but I didn't realize that while I was a child!

  7. When I saw my cousin's little hungry caterpillar toy I suddenly remember this tune which led me watching this video.

  8. Anyone else agree with me that the BBC Proms should perform this music which I call Julian Nott's Eric Carle magnum opus? If so, if they could do the other musics too, I could be the American guest of honor narrator for each story.

  9. I appreciate this very much.
    I happened to see this clip while looking for my students in order to use during class.
    I'm English tutor.
    There are no scripts here, but I think it has many inspiring scenes…
    Thank you again.^^

  10. I had this on VHS when I was little. I used to watch it all the time. Always loved this part. Those were the good old days when music and 2d animation were magical and not the garbage we have today.

  11. This was the very first time I’ve ever heard orchestra music when I was a little kid
    So this means so much to me

  12. I'm a 16 year old girl who is turning 17 in 3 days, and I vividly remember watching this on DVD when I was 3. But I never really understood it at the time. The sequence stuck with me over time, and I spent years trying to find it, but now I have after a few years and have rewatched it since. Thank you for uploading a treasure that shaped my childhood which I will share with my possible future children. ^_^

    PS, this music sequence almost reminds me of Disney's Fantasia. =)

  13. If you want your kids to watch Fantasia, show them this first. It would get any kid old enough to sit still eager for more.
