  • Hannie And Doogie from Woop WoopThese are the 3 options we have decided:

    1. Doogie thinks that it is about actually going to sleep, Hannah also sees this as the most likely option.
    2. Hannie does have a funny feeling about it and believes it could be somebody with suicudal ideations and in the last verse the words "say goodbye to cares of the day", implies that perhaps he is saying good bye to the efforts of life and giving up. Sad but comforting somehwhat ending- he is happy and ready.
    3. It is about a sea-mean who is left at sea by his crew-mates. Perhaps the captain?

    In conclusion, we both mostly agree with number 1, as it is a disney movie...but like Walt Disney, we all have a dark side....
