Chinese tv

So, now that I am back in the States I can add some stuff that I didn't want to try and find while in China (youTube has so many blocked videos it isn't worth it)

First, this song was on ALL THE TIME - on tv, on the televisions on the subway/bus/set up in public for the games. Mind you, I did not have the English translations and just had the tune stuck in my head the whole time. It is over 6 minutes long yet they would play the whole thing, quite often.



THEN, they had a cartoon starring the Fuwa! (aka Olympic mascots). So, for your viewing pleasure here is the video of how they formed (just over 3 min):



and here is the theme song for their cartoon:



I watched part of one of the episodes and they go back in time to the Seoul Olympics. So, don't worry the Fuwa have saved past Olympics! Because China is the greatest and saves everything. duh.

They also had some kind of Beijing song (I understood that much) but I haven't yet been able to find it.
