The Backyardigans is truly an underrated series. The music throughout every season is so well written, especially for a kid's show.

I had no idea the backyardigans went viral recently-ish. Reminds me of the Little Einsteins song and Lazy Town song remixes… it’s crazy how many bops preschool television produces!

My most memorable Backyardigans songs, besides the intro and all that, was when Tyrone when full Lone Texas Ranger and had like, a rodeo rap. I'm 22 and still sing that sometimes, lmfao
