Koala Brothers Vs The Wombats

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that the theme song to ‘The Koala Brothers’ on CBeebies sounds just like ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’ by The Wombats?

I’d really like to think that maybe these Australian native animal are in cahoots and have been helping each other out. Like they all get together to have a big marsupial jam, come up with one song, and then recycle it in an attempt to lower their carbon emissions.

But seeing as The Wombats are from Liverpool, I think it might just be one uncanny coincidence.

Either way, Gammon loves to throw shapes to both versions.

Check them out for yourself and wait until you get to the chorus of both – what do you think?

    • Yours and mine both! I watch WAY more CBeebies than I do of any other TV channel. And there are 4 new Octonauts episodes next week from Tuesday afternoon onwards. It will be the pinnacle of excitement in our house for the whole of 2013, I’m sure – it’ll be like smashing a bottle of champagne on the front of a really large boat in front of Charles and Camilla. I’d better get the popcorn kernels out in anticipation. Every World Premier needs a giant tub of popcorn!

  1. Thank you for linking see exactly what you mean unfortunately now I’m constantly humming ‘call the Koala brothers’ which I’m not sure is an improvement on the ‘kookaburra’ Wiggles song I had in my head earlier!?
