The Chicken Boo Theme is the intro and outro to the Chicken Boo segments of Animaniacs.

The first version was shown only once: when it gets to the line "You wear a disguise...", it shows four different boxes with Chicken Boo disguised. The second version shows Chicken Boo trying on disguises in front of a mirror. Both variations of the intro sample the chords of Joseph M. Daly's "Chicken Reel", which itself serves as another one of Boo's themes.

The song is briefly played at the end of the segment "Good Warner Hunting" in the reboot, fragmented to insert suspense music when every other character confronts Boo for his in-episode actions. Later in the episode "Warner's Ark", the theme is reprised with a new set of lyrics to end the cartoon.

Intro Setup[]

First version[]

As the song begins to play, Chicken Boo makes his entrance into the farm and a bunch of normal-sized hens step aside, scared of him. A Brady Bunch-style shot of four sample disguises used by him is shown before Boo steps out of the farm through the open gate and heads into the city ahead.

Second version[]

Boo’s home farm is shown in a more peaceful setting. This time, after clearing the crowd of hens, he steps into the coop and tries on a few disguises while looking in the mirror. Then he heads out, into a more rural setting.

Third version[]

The third intro is the same as the second, except using the line "You're jumbo sized and you wear a disguise" instead of "You wear a disguise to look like human guys." This version is only used in "Yabba Dabba Boo."

Lyrics[]

Chicken Boo, what's the matter with you?
You don't act like the other chickens do
You wear a disguise to look like human guys
But you're not a man, you're a Chicken Boo

Chicken Boo, what's the matter with you?
You don't act like the other chickens do.
You're jumbo-sized, and you wear a disguise
But you're not a man, you're a Chicken, Boo.

Outro[]

You wear a disguise to look like human guys
But you're not a man, you're a Chicken Boo

He's jumbo-sized and he wears a disguise,
But he's not a man, he's Chicken Boo.
