1. "Little Einsteins" Remix

Designed to teach young kids about art and music, the theme to "Little Einsteins," a Disney Junior hit cartoon, now has your favorite teenager grinning from ear to ear.

2. "Let It Go" "Frozen" Parody Remix

The 2013 Blockbuster animated film "Frozen" is already well known for its catchy music numbers, but that did not stop DJ Taj from offering a remix to the film’s hit song "Let It Go" that has kids of all ages bopping to this hip hop beat.

3. A Potato Flew Around My Room

This may not be a cartoon theme song remix but the story behind this mega-hit remix is just as silly. A kid who listened to Frank Ocean’s "Thinking About You" did not hear the lyrics correctly and mistook “tornado” for “potato.” When he uploaded a seven-second Vine video singing the botched lyrics, "A potato flew around the room before you came, excuse…" with a potato flying around a room on a string, it went viral, culminating in more than 4 million views.

4. "Caillou" Theme Song Thug Remix

4-year-old Caillou has invisible friends and explores life with them in this cartoon that debuted in 1997. More than 15 years later, Caillou’s voice is attracting a different kind of audience with this bass remix.

5. Spongebob Remix

"SpongeBob Squarepants" was introduced by Nickelodeon in 1999 and it hasn’t lost momentum since. Even the most rough and tumble teenager will admit to singing along to the theme song of the character who lives in a pineapple under the sea.

6. "Dora the Explorer" Rap Beat

Nickelodeon pens another awesome show for kids that seems to have mesmerized adult audiences as well. Every mom worth their salt has found herself watching Dora even when her child was not in the room. When Dora’s warning Swiper not to swipe, we’re chanting with her, and these days, the teens have added some bass to the theme song and vibe to it on their way to school.
