Hatari (Swahili for "Danger!") is a 1962 American film directed by Howard Hawks and starring John Wayne. Portraying a group of professional animal catchers in Africa working for zoos, the film includes dramatic wildlife chases and the magnificent backdrop scenery of Mount Meru, a dormant volcano. Hatari! was filmed on location in Tanganyika (in what is now northern Tanzania).
"Baby Elephant Walk" is a piece of music written in 1961 by composer Henry Mancin. The catchy, jazzy simplicity of the tune has made it one of Mancini's most popular works, prompting its appearance on nearly twenty later compilation and best of/greatest hits albums. Get this tune in your head and it sticks."
The Nickelodeon animated series The Angry Beavers features a sped-up version of "Baby Elephant Walk" for the show's end credits. For a period of time, it was used as the theme song to The Ramblin' Rod Show, a children's morning cartoon show. The first few notes were used at the start of play in the video game Crazy Climber. The tune is commonly heard throughout Philadelphia Phillies games at Citizens Bank Park. In The Simpsons, it is used by Homer Simpson in the season 2 episode "Dancin' Homer" where he dances as a mascot for the Springfield Isotopes baseball team.
