Lyrics

They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there under, under the sea!

Everyone loves the king of the sea,
Ever so kind and gentle is he,
Tricks he will do when children appear,
And how they laugh when he's near!

They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Flipper

Kids love animals. One of the most beloved critters in the 1960's was Flipper, the Bottlenose dolphin. The dolphin helped save people and solve mysteries along with the Ricks family, a widower park warden, and his two sons, off the Florida coast. The theme song from the show remains popular with youngsters today.

The music was written by Henry Vars with lyrics written by William "By" Dunham. The beginning of the second season had a slightly different version with different lyrics. It apparently was not as popular, as the new version was short-lived being replaced once again with the original.

The three-year series was filmed in Miami with parts being shot at the Miami Seaquarium. Flipper was played by five different female dolphins, each with her different abilities. A male dolphin was used for the well-known tail walk along the water. Two dolphin trainers were involved with the show and one of them also worked as a stunt double.

A variety of collectibles were made of Flipper including lunch boxes, puzzles, coloring books and song books which only increased the popularity of the tune as well. Reruns have aired on television and some episodes were produced on VHS and DVD. For more history on the television series visit Wikipedia.

Also for those who love the characters in The Flintstones.

Everyone loves the king of the sea,
Ever so kind and gentle is he,
Tricks he will do when children appear,
And how they laugh when he's near!

They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!

Look at the sky when rainbows appear,
You can be sure, that Flipper is near,
Call him by name or less intellect,
He'll give you a ride on his back!

We know our Flipper, Flipper, knows every answer,
No-one can be, much smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!

Many a night, way down in the deep,
Oysters make beds, so Flipper can sleep,
Happy and gay when he comes along,
They all start singing this song!

They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!

We call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!

There once was a boy, that lived by the sea,
Ever so kind, but lonely was he,
Until one day, one day when he met,
A friend he'll never forget!

His name is Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!
