DH has been bugging me for months to ask this question,but I keep forgetting.He thinks that there is nothing that Mumsnetters don't know,so here it is.

Is the theme tune to Clifford the big red dog,part of a pop song?DH swears that it is & is possibly something by The Eels.OK,so its not a question of world shattering importance,but every time DD watches it,DH asks me if I've found out yet.

can't possibly be, surely!

Well, he must be working on the principle that They Might Be Giants gave us the theme to Malcolm in the Middle.
Even so...Eels? On Clifford?

well according to the credits at the end of Cliffors the song is sung by an individual and not a band.

i used to like eels and have never heard clifford song
what about the song for clifford puppy days 'love makes little things grow' i like that better !

sorry to hijack this thread but additionally is the voice of puppy clifford the same as Franklin (the British Franklin not the American voice one)?

The theme tune was composed by Mark Mothersbaugh and Josh Mancel, and the lead vocal is by Jason Michael.

sorry i don,t know the answer but have you tryed ask jeeves or something like got me thinking now

snafu Sun 31-Jul-05 19:55:15

Has your dh ever actually heard The Eels?

Then again, Mark Mothersbaugh was in Devo so...

snafu Sun 31-Jul-05 19:56:35

Oh - hang on - I was thinking of Clifford's Puppy Days - that's definitely not Eels - confused, me?

WigWamBam Sun 31-Jul-05 19:57:56

Although it has to be said that the theme tune for Clifford doesn't bear much relationship to Devo either ...

lunachic Sun 31-Jul-05 19:58:51

i like devo thanks for that snippet snafu !

WigWamBam Sun 31-Jul-05 20:01:03

More here on the other stuff that Mr Devo has written .. he did the Rugrats as well.

What a sell-out ...

At least he has not trod the path of the Wiggles
"We are not men, we are a giant red soppy dog..."

DOH,DH has just imformed me that it is NOT the theme tune he means,but the music they use on CBeebies to advertise Clifford.

Its hard to describe-sounds to me like someone playing a recorder!

Thanks for all the feedback so far.Its amazing to find out who actually does the music for some of these programmes.I'm still reeling in disbelief after finding that Stan Cullimore is responsible for the theme to 'Little Red Tractor'.

What is it about "They might be Giants" at the moment, everyone seems to be talking about them? . . . crazy purple!

snafu Sun 31-Jul-05 22:06:59

No, that's Grandaddy, Mirage - I think it's 'Go Progress Chrome' from Under The Western Freeway.

(Although I could be wrong )

snafu Sun 31-Jul-05 22:11:15

Sorry - tell a lie (again) the track is called AM 180, but it is Grandaddy and the album is Under The Western Freeway - have just dug it out
