Regarding the Uncle Moishie Concert:

I've had an urge to do this numerous times (not at concerts, but to people who sing the song).

They get the impression that Hashem is everything, while this is a major philosophical disagreement between Chasidim (specifically - Chabad), and non-Chasidim (specifically - the Gr"a).

It's great how such important issues get summed up in songs to little 2 year old kids, who grow up thinking that G-d is physical, and he is here and there.

Don't even think about asking me "The Torah states מלוא כל הארץ כבודו"?
