Optimism and Gratitude (KIND of...)

Below is a song from a musical that was never successful, but the song is good! Carol Burnett sang it originally, and if anyone knows where there's a recording online of her doing it, or a video, please leave a link to it! Thanks.

Claire Spencer, a friend of ours, sang it to us many years ago, and repeated it a couple of times just because we asked. She had it on an LP from her childhood. Unfortunately, I don't have a recording of Claire doing it, either.

This is Buddy Rich, a famous drummer, on the Muppet Show, not drumming. 1981:

Here's one of him drumming, same program, no drums:

Here's a link to at least part of the original song:

Scroll down (or through the player) to get "You Mustn't Be Discouraged." Man, Carol Burnett sounds so young.

OH MY GOSH! They were totally doing it in the style of a Shirley Temple and Bill Robinson number! And it's on CD. THANK YOU!
