Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah

Yesterday's post about Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm singing got us thinking about other animated musical numbers. Another one near the top of our list is "Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah" from the "A Date With Jet Screamer" episode of "The Jetsons." This musical episode actually pre-dates the Flintsones' one by three years -- and it's nearly as catchy.

The plot is vintage "Jetsons": Daughter Judy enters a song-writing contest to win a date with her idol, rocker Jet Screamer. And even though George tries to sabotage things -- or maybe because of it -- she wins. Hey, we would have given her first prize, too. The tune holds up -- The Violent Femmes even covered it on a 1995 album, packed full of awesome Saturday-morning-cartoon tunage.

Check out both clips below. Oh, and Jane -- stop this crazy thing!

I remember this! Actually, I even remember that Elroy was ticked off because everybody knew the secret code. I did not remember "Hop on, baby, I'll put you in orbit!" though. What time was this show on?
