I hope the autographed postcard includes a return address on it in case I need to contact Andy in the event that this XTC release does not include a lyric sheet. ;)

Another vote for Yogi Bear. Great stuff!

(And although not an "A" movie (which I would reserve for "classic cinema"), it's certainly an enjoyable movie to watch.)
