PB&J Otter - Noodle Dance 1

The Noodle Dance is a song and dance routine performed by (and possibly created by) Peanut, Jelly, and Baby Butter to help them think of ideas when they are stuck on a problem. Other characters often join the dance as well. When one of the characters, often Jelly, gets an idea, a light bulb appears over their head and a "ding" sound is heard. Peanut often doesn't want to perform the dance at first. This is similar to the Dennis character from Stanley, another production of Cartoon Pizza, who never wants the dog Harry and cat Elsie to sing "The Great Big Book of Everything" song. Peanut confesses in "Whistling Up the Wrong Munchy" that what really bothers him is the idea of looking silly in public.

"Noodle Dance" was written for the program by Dan Sawyer.

As presented on the original Playhouse Disney album, the lyrics to the song are as follows:

Noodle, use your noodle
Noodle, do the noodle dance

Solve a problem, it's no strain
Use your noodle, that's your brain

Noodle, use your noodle
Noodle, do the noodle dance

There's an answer you can find
Use your noodle, that's your mind

In a bind, just use your mind
Use your noodle! (Listen to a Song Sample)

Others lyrics are sometimes heard, often in double-length stories where there is additional time to fill, or alternate music may be used. In "Nanner Says 'I Do'", instrumentals of "The Wedding March" (from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by Felix Mendelsohn Bartholdy) and "Lohengrin's 'Bridal March' " ("Here Comes the Bride") were added to the Noodle Dance music.

An alternate version of the song with spooky music and altered lyrics was featured in "A Hoohaw Halloween."

Noodle, use your noodle
Noodle, do the Noodle Dance
Goblins, ghosts, trick or treat
Make a Halloween complete

Another alternate version, featuring a Texan flavor, was used in "Goodbye Lake Hoohaw."

Noodle, use your noodle
Everybody do the Noodle Dance
Solve your problems in a snap
Hop hop hop, clap clap clap
You can do the Noodle Dance!

Use your brain, do the dance
Nod your head, take a chance
Everybody do the Noodle Dance

There's answer you can find
Use your noodle, that's your mind
You can do the Noodle Dance!

An instrumental version of the Texan flavor Noodle Dance was used during the episode's closing credits.

In "Ducking Out on Valentine's Day," Flick did the Noodle Dance by himself. "Noodle, noodle, do the Noodle Dance! Use your little ducky brain!" In addition, he's also done a Noodle Dance by himself in "The Tell-Tale Candy Wrapper," "Easy as Pie," and "The Duck Who Cried Wolf."


  • Pinky Dinky Doo, another Cartoon Pizza production, had a song performed by the title character which filled a similar function when she needed to think up the answer to a problem. "If I have a problem / Don't know which way to go / I think and think and think and think / And suddenly I know! / Come on, Pink, Think!".
