'I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas'
Gayla Peevey
The success of this funny Christmas song in 1953 gave the Oklahoma City Zoo the idea to start a fundraising campaign to "buy a hippo for Gayla," which the zoo needed at the time. Peevey clarifies that the song was not originally recorded as a fundraiser, although she was eventually presented with an actual hippopotamus (which she thereupon donated to the city zoo).
