When I was a teacher, I loved teaching about Johnny Appleseed. It is a great story about faith and the ability to pursue your dreams, whatever your circumstances. In honor of this fall season, I would like to share some trivia about Johnny Appleseed. You can see his story in Disney’s Melody Time or Disney’s American Legends. This trivia is from: The Gospel According to Disney: Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust By Mark I. Pinsky
- Johnny Appleseed’s real name is Johnny Chapman.
- In the cartoon there is a song called “The Lord Is Good to Me”. As far as I know very few Disney movies even mention God, much less have a praise song in the middle of the cartoon.
- A Disney Pin from the movie is a Bible with a cross on it. I tried looking for the pin on pinpics and could not find it. I did find this one on Ebay though. It mentions the Lord, but doesn’t have a Bible on it.
