Just some trivial information. Hopefully entertaining.

The legendary unreleased, unfinished The Beach Boys LP 'Smile' (1967) was 
meant to refer to American culture. In the song 'Barnyard', a voice can be 
heard imitating Donald Duck.

The Beach Boys - Barnyard - SMiLE by PC
fanmix of backing track and demo. "Donald" can be heard at 0:52.

Brian Wilson - Barnyard - 2004
Finished, re-recorded version. No Donald. Or maybe very dimly at 0:26.

The Beach Boys song 'Fall Breaks and Back to Winter' (also from 1967) is 
subtitled 'Woody Woodpecker Symphony'. Woody Woodpecker is another American 
cartoon/comics character.
