THURSDAY THEME SONG: CAMP CANDY

Keeping with our 'Famous People Who Shouldn't have Had Their Own Cartoon' theme for August, this week we have a short lived cartoon starring the great Canadian comedian, John Candy. That cartoon is.......

Camp Candy

Camp Candy was an NBC Saturday morning cartoon produced by DiC Entertainment. It only had 19 episodes that ran during the 1989-1990 season. The show followed the adventures of a camp and its campers as they learned how to care for the environment. The camp was lead by John Candy who also provided the voice for his animated counterpart and appeared before the episode in a live action segment.

This show was quite popular with 5-10 years old. The animation was fine and the stories were trite. But it held its own and those 19 episodes reran for the next few years.

The theme song is sung by John Candy and I would have to say that it is one of the worst theme songs I have ever heard!

Do you agree? Judge for yourself:

Actually, the song is written and co-sung by Harry Nilsson. Learned that at the "For The Love Of Harry" blog. While it's hardy a great song it IS meant to be a goof.
