Theme song

The opening theme song was written by veteran Hollywood composer Bob Golden. Other songs were written by Square One TV songwriter, John Rodby. Two different arrangements of that song have been used; one involves bouncing, the other strength. The ending theme song featured the children and puppets singing "The Song That Doesn't End", while Lewis frantically attempted to stop them.

An instrumental version of the show's theme song was used for a most recent show of Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop.
