Whenever I get into a “heated” conversation about great kids theme songs from yesteryear, there are always a few shows that come to mind.
Off the top of my head, cartoons like Alvin and the Chipmunks, Bionic Six, M.A.S.K., Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Gummy Bears, DuckTales and Transformers G1 all come to mind. Then, of course, there’s Fraggle Rock. It might not have been a cartoon, but it had one of the most upbeat and toe-tapping theme songs of the 80s.
Seriously, who didn’t feel jubilant when the Fraggles said to “dance your cares away” and save your “worries for another day” down in Fraggle Rock? If only the Fraggles could sing to you now that you’re grown up and at work, wouldn’t life be just a little more playful.
Well, if you’re one of those employees who can get onto Hulu at work, then you’re in luck; the online network is now airing the entire 96-episode series. Can life get better than playtime with Mokey, Gobo, Wembley and Red Fraggle? I think not.
This is also a great opportunity to kick it with your kids, enjoying some old school fun on the iPad.
Here’s the original theme song below:
