The sad news that Shirley Temple Black passed away Monday at the age of 85 likely had many fans reminiscing about her iconic work…and perhaps beginning to hum “On the Good Ship Lollipop” while sipping on her eponymous drink.

Though she retired from acting at the age of 22, her career featured many memorable performances — usually complete with a song-and-dance routine. Watch some of her most famous scenes below. (Note: Some of these videos have been colorized.)

1.) Stand Up and Cheer! (1934)

2.)  Bright Eyes (1934)

3.) Curly Top (1935)

4.) The Little Colonel (1935)

5.) Heidi (1937)

6.) The Little Princess (1939)
