make your teenager admit to singing the theme songs to children’s cartoons? The
fact that all of his friends are doing the same thing now that DJs and mix
masters have remixed their favorite cartoon songs and added a hip hop flavor.
My 14-year-old son admitted to laughing hysterically as he heard 12th graders at his
school bopping their heads to a popular remix of the "Little Einsteins" theme
song. Do you think I’m bluffing? Press play on any one of these popular remix videos
and watch your toddler and your teenager smile in delight.
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
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
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.
Can you believe the cartoon series "Scooby Doo" first aired in
1969? More than 40 years later kids are still imitating Scooby’s signature howl
and much bigger kids are using their music mastering skills to turn this
cartoon theme song into a club hit.
