I just realized that Mary Poppins sang to an American Robin in “Spoonful of Sugar.” Those don’t live in Europe!
She should have been singing to a European Robin. They are rounder, cuter (subjectively), and have the reddish color on their face.
Disney either doesn’t know or care about Robins. Perhaps a puppet of the European one is more difficult to make. Rude.
I made the above image to show the difference between the two birds and what was featured in the movie.
GREAT JOB, DISNEY.
Clearly they are *objectively* cuter though, let’s be honest
