6 Most Annoying Kids TV Show Tunes

Most Annoying Kid TV Show Tunes

I was sitting at the kitchen counter this morning, drinking my coffee, and doing my daily networking and social media routine when I heard the TV blast The Cat in The Hat theme song. It got a bit annoying…I really don’t care that he knows a lot about that, stating it once is more than enough, thankyouverymuch! Besides, I know way more about that, so shush!

This got me wondering, why do the tv network people allow for such annoying show tunes songs? They are not catchy, they are blatantly annoying. Yes, maybe kids like the song but moms are the ones with the remote power.

So I ventured into my TV to find all the TV show songs that annoy me to the extreme.

6 Most Annoying Kids TV Show Tunes


Dora the Explorer

Every single one of their songs is annoying. But the one that makes me want to pull my hair out while running around in circles is the map song. After 3 times, I guess we all know that you are the darn map! STOP IT!!



Barney is not allowed at all in my house. Barney is even worse than Dora, Dora I can deal with (by a hair of a bald frog) but Barney…Barney is a whole other story. Don’t you think it is odd that a purple dinosaur hangs around kids? It is a bit disturbing.

PS: Barney, I do not love you.


Wow Wow Wubbzy!

To much wow, wow for me…The song starts Ok but it looses me when it starts going “Wow, Wow Wubbzy! Wubbzy, Wubbzy, Wow, Wow” for about a minute…I now have the song stuck in my head. Thankfully my boys are not big Wow, Wow Wubbzy fans, phew!


Max & Ruby

Just as bad as Wow, Wow Wubbzy. I am sure kids can remember that their name are Max and Ruby, no need to reminds us every nanosecond what their names are! And it is not like Ruby doesn’t repeat Max’s name over and over and over again during the show. Geez!



I think I used to read the books long, long time ago….but books didn’t have a theme song! It is just annoying and the intro is just as bad…plus it has a reggae beat and I can’t really stand reggae.


Yo Gabba Gabba

I can’t stand their songs…or more like I can stand the show altogether. The songs just don’t do it for me (and yeah, it is not geard towards me) but seriously, the Party in My Tummy song is just wrong and disturbing! And don’t even get me started on the opening song! Oh, you are awesome! And you are amazing! While you are beyawesome (beyond awesome, from Bolt)! While you little green guy, well you are just the green one, so whatever!
Along the way, as my boys grow up, I might come up with new annoying songs that will drive me insane to the point where I’ll simply flee my house…for a minute, and then I’ll have to get a margarita.

I want to apologize for getting all these amazing songs stuck into your head! Hey, it could we worse! Imagine waking up around midnight while your brain can’t stop singing the Hanna Montana theme song…that has nightmare written all over it! Oh wait…I’ve been there! Not fun!


Did I miss any annoying theme songs? Which annoy you the most?

    I’ve never understood why people think Yo Gaba Gaba is so awesome. I feel like I’m high when I watch it.

      I’m with you on this one…it is just a dumb show!

    ^^ loved her comment…so true! I can’t stand Yo Gaba Gaba!

    I think you pretty much have the list right. Those are all the songs and shows that annoy me the most as well! I’d rather listen to the Super Why’s ABC song over and over again rather than having to sit through Yo Gabba Gabba…I mean what in the world does that even mean?! Aren’t we trying to teach our kids NOT to talk baby talk?!

    • August 30, 2012 at 9:01 pm

      I almost added Super Why but it doesn’t bug me that much…and my boys love the ABC song and most times sing along.

    Hilarious! Totally agree on Yo Gabba Gabba. Every song is so annoying. And ditto the comment above….it feels like an acid trip (or what I assume an acid trip feels like!).

    My youngest is 12, but I could probably still sing the Barney and Dora songs. Hopefully, after reading this, I won’t be singing them all day! lol

    Love Max & Ruby and Dora in our house.

    Brody LOVES Cailou but so tired of the theme song…and that show!!

    • August 30, 2012 at 9:03 pm

      I always change the channel when Caillou comes on, he comes across as a spoiled brat in my opinion. Can’t stand it

  7. August 28, 2012 at 8:05 am

    AMEN!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!! Oh my goodness! My kids used to watch those and it always drove me nuts! You need to add Blues Clues and Diego! AHHH!!!! They are all outlawed in our house, I just can’t take them anymore.

    especially Dora and Diego! Their Spanish is horrible! And wow, that Map song really took some great brain skills there….”I’m a man, I’m a map, I’m a map, I’m a map…I’m a MAP!” uhm…wow! I think I just LOST brain cells. Do you think it might just be a map? Since the whole pictures of locations with directions on how to get there wouldn’t give you that impression at all, or the fact that Dora just said she was going to USE a map….really my kids aren’t that clueless.

    Now all of these are stuck in my head! I don’t know the Arthur one at all but I have to add Spongebob to the list.

    Have any of you had the misfortune of catching the show The Doodlebops? I cringe every time I stray across it when channel surfing. HORRIBLE.

    • August 30, 2012 at 9:08 pm

      I’ve never heard of them!! And I’m too scared to find their theme song on YouTube! :S

  10. August 28, 2012 at 10:31 am

    LOL Most of them don’t bug me too much,I actually LIke Wow Wow Wubbzy. Max and Ruby bugs me and I don’t like Yo Gabba Gabba at all either but my girls like it.

    I was just saying the other day how annoying Dora’s voice is, never mind the songs. When my girls were young they watched it multiple times per day and I didn’t mind. Then we got Disney Junior and they haven’t watch Dora much. Then the digital box stopped working so in the living room, they started watching old videos like Dora again. Now I can’t stand her voice!

    Hilarious list! My kids are in love with Yo Gabba Gabba! Not sure what it is, I think the creatures are funky and the songs never end!

    I think I hate Barney the most.

    Toot and Puddle; closing song, the Hot Dog song, for the Mickey Mouse Club House; even the opening song for the Mickey Mouse Club House is annoying; Dinosaur Train; Doc McStuffins, Chuggington…

    I am thinking that they are so annoying because I hear them all way too much somedays.

  13. August 28, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    So true! II’d like to add Spongebob’s theme song to the list! :P I am a fan but can’t stand the song!
