    General CommentA teacher once bet my roomate that he couldn't name all of the countries of the world. Thanks to this song he made $50. ...hey didn't this song appear on Animaniacs? What a great show.

    General CommentThis isn't anywhere near *all* the countries in the world -- and this song only came out a few months ago, so, no, Animaniacs never did a video of it.

    That being said, my six-and-a-half year old can sing the entire song, without it even being on. God bless TMBG.

    General CommentUnlike No!, this was an album I thought I'd definitely get more use out of if I was (or had) a 6 year old. That said, making up "West Xylophone" just because there aren't any countries that start with "W" or "X" is a pretty fun idea.

    General CommentThere actually is a nation that begins with "W" (West Timor), but yeah, you're right.

    General Commentglobal crises!
    the alphabet of nations is weak in its division!

    (in other words, Q for Qatar is missing in the lyrics right now.)
