December 12: I was strolling on the Moon one day…

The song “The Fountain in the Park” as featured in Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse cartoons and sung by Judy Garland in “Strike up the Band” was given the Schmitt and Cernan treatment while setting up experiments during an EVA. Watch the astronauts enjoying themselves in this video. (placed on You Tube by Jordaxe12.)

Transcript from the mission transcripts:

SCHMITT (Singing) I was strolling on the Moon one day, in the merry merry month of December-
CERNAN May – May’s the month.
SCHMITT – May – that’ s right.
CERNAN May is the (garble) month.
SCHMITT – when much to my surprise, a pair of funny eyes (singing)
CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator back in mission control) Sorry about that, guys, but today may be December.
