    I am going to take @tharpdevenport 's suggestion and incorporate springtime into this week's contest:
    ANY DEPICTION OF SPRING IN THE MOVIES. That means any MOVIE that focuses on, features, has one or more major scenes involving spring, takes place in spring or has spring as a major theme. So, any tacky-teenager spring break movie, a baseball movie, animals frolicking in the spring, Spring Breakers, Big Fish, Secret Garden, State Fair, the Easter Parade, Ferris Bueller, heck, I'll even take the "Springtime for Hitler" musical number in The Producers. Fantasy is allowed but I'm going to say no to hard scifi, but hey, make a good argument and we'll see. So, yes to talking animal movies, Fantasia, Easter Bunny movies, Mary Poppins, Winnie the Pooh. You know the type.

    Standard av rules apply: 200 x 200 pixels max, 1 MB max. Remember to keep it worksafe and relatively tasteful--especially for those going with the Teenagers-on-Spring-Break movies. ;)

    Let's start with one avatar per entry; we can always change it if we have to. I'll put the poll up on Monday, the 18th, or thereabouts.

    I'm going to go with one of my favorite "talking-animals" movies:
    Bambi, enjoying spring

    I'm not even supposed to be here today.
    I hope this is okay, even though it's an animated short (but it fits so well):

    Well, Silly Symphonies used to air at the movies, so close enough.

    TBH, I'm completely drawing a blank with this one. But since you mentioned baseball movies, I'm just going to throw A League of Their Own out there, and hope that it actually does take place in spring, because I honestly don't remember.
