A bit of comparison between the two.
And an honorable mention...
This was an epic moment in the movie!
Hopefully this works....
I'm laughing while I post this.
Favorite movie as a kid!
I always say this to my pup when I'm trying to get her to hurry across the street. (I'm pretty sure I use a British accent too!)

I loved this scene as a kid. Everytime I rode a carousel horse, I wished it rode off like in the movie haha

"Anything can happen, if you let it." A nice, carefree quote.

"I love to laugh . . . it's getting worse every year!"
Since "Practically perfect in every way" has been taken, the above would be my second favorite line.
I hate to admit it, but I totally cried during the emotional scenes due to way they tied this to Mary Poppins.
I was beat to the "Feed the birds" GIF. First time I cried at the drive in. There may have been other times I do not care to mention.
This will have to do.
Oh My Gosh....
First, @starry_solo, an "Absolutely Perfect" choice for the Theme. And TySVM for running this game.
Mary Poppins is my ALL TIME FAV Disney Movie. And I'm reading, I'm not alone on that choice.
And, you're All Rockin' It with the Entries, and stories.
I've already got goosebumps; swelling up, and Great memories, from the entries so far. I'm looking forward to this next week to see what else you all can come up with.
Btw, I Loved, "Saving Mr Banks."
Actually saw it on Christmas Day. Here's a little story. My husband and I took my mother-in-law. So there were three of us. There wasn't three seats together. So my husband and mother-in-law sat together, and I sat by myself. I was going to be sure I saw the movie that day!
And, needless to say, I absolutely Loved "Mary Poppins Returns!"
So, I'm all up for gif's from Saving Mr Banks and MP Returns, too!
I am so Happy to see that the theme is welling up in all of you, as it is with me.

One of my all time favorite quotes:
Mary Poppins: You know, you *can* say it backwards, which is "docious-ali-expi-istic-fragil-cali-rupus" - but that's going a bit too far, don't you think?
There is a funny story on a Sound of Music BTS . . .and the actors playing the Von Trapp children said that Julie Andrews entertained them off set by teaching them Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. They thought she made it up for them, as Mary Poppins hadn't been released when they were filming TSoM.
I'm surprised no one did this one (not an entry, but I really like it):
Bert: I know a man with a wooden leg named Smith
Uncle Albert: What's the name of his other leg?
BTW, it's a quote from the movie OR an animated gif. Don't need both
One night I said it to me girl, and now me girl's my wife!
Oh, and a lovely thing she is, too
I always liked this one.
“I have no intention of making a spectacle of myself, thank you.”
Looooooove Mary Poppins!!!
And you'll achieve that sense of stature
As your influence expands
To the high financial strata
That established credit now commands
The whole idea of bank directors hardcore pressuring a kid to invest a tiny amount of money by singing fancy terms he won't understand is hilarious to me.
But it made him rich and saved the family house!
"Ah, Mrs. Cory a story for you. Your daughters were shorter than you, but they grew."
This has always been my favorite line. Mary Poppins was my Mom's favorite movie, and she LOVED this line, because when I hit middle school, I shot up several inches, and towered over her. LOL
Always loved this little guy!
Fun memory: I remember when the pins for Mary Poppins returns were coming out for DSSH, and I said I was hoping for a surprise pin with a fox on it, and low and behold, that’s exactly what came out!

This is without a doubt my favorite song from the movie.
I have a degree in political science and would have been a suffragette back in the day if I was alive.
Even dancing around in ash, Mary Poppins must look her best!!
I love this little detail of her powdering her nose with soot.
I always wondered what type of investment that in 20-30 years, can grow two pence into a house saving amount. None of the investments in the song would have worked. Some were way too safe (ex. self amortizing canals), some were a couple hundred years too late (ex. tea plantations), some were too early given that it's a time period without derivatives (ex. forclosures). Shipping may have worked for a few years but then the Titanic sank which killed consumer confidence in the industry. To make this work I think the bank must have bought stock in oil, steel, refrigerator and/or telephone/radio companies on margin and then short sold stocks as the market was collapsing. Then maybe the tidy sum would have allowed him to refinance the home rather than pay off the entire debt.
The YouTube channel Film Theory did a whole video on whether investing two pence would have paid off in the long run.
I do love the bird representation in this movie.
Including our beloved Mary with a *cough* American *cough* robin.
I've seen the stage musical a fair few times now
