Flipper Theme Song

Remember the Movie Flipper?

Flipper, from Ivan Tors Films in association with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Television, is an American television program first broadcast on NBC from September 19, 1964, until April 15, 1967. Flipper, a Bottlenose Dolphin, is the companion animal of Porter Ricks, Chief Warden at fictional Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve in southern Florida, and his two young sons Sandy and Bud. The show was created by Jack Cowden and Ricou Browning, a man with extensive experience in underwater filming and underwater performance, notably as the monster in The Creature from the Black Lagoon. A considerable amount of juvenile merchandise inspired by the show was produced during the first-run. The show has been dubbed an “aquatic Lassie“.

Flipper Theme 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!

The first five episodes of the second season feature a completely different recording of the theme, sung by Frankie Randall, with different lyrics:

We call him Flipper, Flipper, you’ll see him smilin’
Right from the start, he’ll play it smart.
Beware of Flipper, Flipper, he’s such a lover,
You will discover when he steals your heart!
When you’re feelin’ sad, when you’re feelin’ blue,
He’ll make you glad, yes, that’s what he’ll do,
And what he can do you’ll never believe,
For he’s got tricks up his sleeve!
Beware of Flipper, Flipper, he’s such a lover,
You will discover when he steals your heart!

ANOTHER ALTERNATE FLIPPER THEME SONG

Ev’ry one loves….  the king of the sea,
Ev’er so kind….  and gentle is he.
Tricks he will do….  when children appear,
And how they laugh when he’s near.

They call him Flip-per…. Flip-per, faster than light-ning,
No one you see….  is smarter than he.
And we know Flipper lives in a world full of wonder,
Ly-ing there under…. under the sea.

Look at the sky when rainbows appear,
You can be sure….  that Flipper is near.
Call him by name….  alas and a-lack,
He’ll give you a ride on his back.

We know our Flip-per….  Flip-per, knows every answer,
No one can be….  much wiser than he.
And we know Flip-per lives in a world full of wonder,
Ly-ing there under….  under the sea.

Many a night….  ‘way down in the deep,
Oysters make beds….  so Flipper can sleep.
Hap-py and gay….  when he comes along,
They all start sing-ing this song.

They call him Flip-per…. Flip-per, faster than light-ning,
No one you see….  is smarter than he.
And we know Flip-per….  Flip-per, faster than light-ning,
Ly-ing there under….  under the sea.

 

Theme to “Flipper’s New Adventure” (The Motion Picture)


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!
