Can You Get Our Alligator Out Of Your Head?


-Hearty robotic congratulations are in order to Composer Jeff Zahn and Writer/Director Robert Ramirez for crafting a theme song that has the internet ablaze with its own magnetism. Apparently "Can You Teach My Alligator Manners?" has quite a few of the web-savvy set humming our tune!

A doting older sibling MUST have the correct lyrics to sing to her little sister.

Third post down in "Songs that you can't freakin' get out of your head" topic of this online message board.

This 'Jersey Shore Mom' can't get the Alligator theme out of her head, even in a PBS Kids Sprout discussion thread!

Photographs of a young fan singing the Alligator theme song to the gators at the zoo!

-Naturally, we LOVE this as much as is robotically possible! Keep up the mentions and thanks for all the feedback!
