Mr. MacDonald with Bradley and Mandie Fox, and H.B. at the farm on the title cover.

Kidsongs: A Day at Old MacDonald's Farm is the very first Kidsongs Music Video Story that was presented by View-Master Video & Warner Bros. Records.

It was released in December 3, 1985, and was the Vira Award winning video.


Join the Kidsongs Kids for a sing-along day on the farm and meet all of their MacDonalds barnyard friends. Milk the cows, feed the piglets, cuddle the ducklings and meet Mary's famous lamb as you sing the songs we all know and love. Bounce along on an old-fashioned hayride and sing around the campfire in this heartwarming music video adventure.
