Mandela Effect Strikes Again: The Song that Never/Doesn’t End
The Mandela effect is an unusual phenomenon where a large group of people remember something differently than how it occurred.
Conspiracy theorists believe this is proof of an alternate universe, while many doctors use it as an illustration of how imperfect memory can be sometimes.
We've discussed the Mandela Effect many times on the show. The main example that is always used for the Mandela Effect is the Berenstain Bears. Apparently it's "Berenstain" and not "Berenstein" (which is what I always thought it was!). I decided that maybe my memory failed me and it had ALWAYS been "Berenstain" just to push aside the theories of an alternate universe. Something has happened now, that I'm not so sure.
Do any of y'all remember the show "Lamb Chop's Play-Along"? It ran on PBS from 1992 to 1995. I LOVED that show! It was about puppeteer Shari Lewis and her puppet characters Lamb Chop, Charlie Horse and Hush Puppy. At the end of the show, Charlie Horse would sing "The Song that Never Ends" much to Shari's dismay. Well, the other day I started singing it for some reason and my nephew had NO IDEA what I was talking about! So, I went on to YouTube to find them a video and I. WAS. SHOOKETH with what I heard!
Charlie Horse is singing it as "The Song that DOESN'T End"! I do not remember singing it like that! Over on Wikipedia, I don't think even they can figure out which one it's supposed to be! On Reddit, many users remember it as "never" but also justify why it could have always been "doesn't". The evidence points clearly that it was always "doesn't" but I never sang it like that, and trust me, I sang that song a lot! Which do you remember? Take the poll below and let me know!
