"The characters rousing get happy anthem titled Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy, was written by Charlie Brissette, John Kricfalusi, and Christopher Reccardi. A cover of this song, performed by Wax, is included on the 1995 tribute album Saturday Morning: Cartoons' Greatest Hits, produced by Ralph Sall for MCA Records.
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy is sung by a character named Stinky Wizzleteats who is a parody of Burl Ives. Several references to famous songs and movie quotes are sprinkled through the song giving it its surreal air including: * "This is a song about a whale" - "The Whale" Burl Ives Sings Little White Duck and Other Children's Favorites * "I'll teach your grandmother to suck eggs!", "If'n you ain't the grandaddy of all liars", "I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me, why wouldn't you believe me?" - The Big Country lines spoken by (or paraphrased from) his character Rufus Hannassey * "The little creatures of nature, they don't know they're ugly" - Ives' intro to the song "The Ugly Bug Ball" from Disney's Summer Magic (1963) * "That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumblebee" - from "Mother Goose Songs Burl Ives Sings Little White Duck and Other Children's Favorites * The record cover Stimpy pulls the record from has a character on the front that has a similar face and Van Dyke beard as Burl Ives."
