"Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a cheerful Disney song. The melody and lyrics, describing a perfect day and such cheerful concepts as Mr. Bluebird resting on one's shoulder, combined to net an Academy Award for Best Song. The tune has since become a staple Disney theme, much like "When You Wish Upon a Star," used in variations in Disney commercials, television openings, and at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, most notably in the Splash Mountain ride.

The sprightly anthem was performed by The Bun-Bun Brothers in The Muppet Show episode 420, a cute act interrupted by Alan Arkin (under the influence of Bunsen's Jekyll-and-Hyde potion).

The song was sung as a duet between Rowlf and Jimmy Dean on the December 10, 1964 broadcast of The Jimmy Dean Show, when Rowlf was cured from his delusion that he was a cat.

In Sesame Street Episode 4319, the Three Little Pigs proclaim in song that they're going build "a brand new zip-a-dee-doo house".
