It's adorable! I love seeing how the books' influence has shown in popular culture. We have the children's storybook and cassette tape from the Rankin-Bass Hobbit production (a family heirloom), and the music on it cracks me up too.

Anyway, happy birthday Bagginses!

I love to believe that there is symbolism in the date being our world's equinox.
As per my (admittedly haphazard) trawling in Wikipedia, 22 September is the "Earliest date for the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the vernal equinox in the Southern Hemisphere." JRRT did pay painstaking attention to the phases of the moon in LoTR (and had a glitch somewhere in TH). Maybe.
The 22nd did ring a bell, but the one I was thinking of was 22 November 1963, the day C.S. Lewis died - somewhat overshadowed by the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
And "The Hobbit" was published on 21 September 1937 … 😒
