Abdul the Bulbul Ameer

Something I saw or read or heard today reminded me of a cartoon I used to see occasionally on afternoon cartoon shows after school when I was a child. I remember two crows at the beginning of the cartoon approaching each other from opposite directions and exchanging the greetings that I now know to be “Al-salam ‘alaykum,” and “W’alaykum al-salam.” Or maybe the crows were in a different cartoon, but nevertheless I remember the song about Abdul Abulbul Amir, also called Abdulla Bulbul Ameer and Abdul the Bulbul Ameer. To my great dismay, I can’t find it on YouTube, but I found a few sides with the lyrics and one of them also had a downloadable midi. Here’s what I found:

http://www.contemplator.com/ireland/abdul.html (the one with the sound file)

If somebody out there can tell me which cartoon collection, if any, has Abdul the Bulbul Ameer on it, I will be very grateful.
The actual name of the cartoon short is Abdul the Bulbul Ameer. They’re selling posters of it at various poster sites such as allposters. EBay also has it.
