  • "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a cheerful Disney song. The melody and lyrics, describing a perfect day and such cheerful concepts as Mr. Bluebird resting on one's shoulder, combined to net an Academy Award for Best Song. The tune has since become a staple Disney theme, much like "When You Wish Upon a Star," used in variations in Disney commercials, television openings, and at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, most notably in the Splash Mountain ride.
  • "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a Disney song from the 1946 film Song of the South. It was sung by Uncle Remus as a segue to the first animated Brer Rabbit segment. Despite the film's banning by Disney due to its racial insensitivity, the song is the only element from it that has still been actively marketed, and it remains a well-known one, appearing in various media, most notably at Splash Mountain and, prior to that, as the finale for the Mickey Mouse Revue. It was also featured in The Muppet Show in the Alan Arkin episode.
  • "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a song from the Disney 1946 live action and animated movie Song of the South, sung by James Baskett. With music by Allie Wrubel and lyrics by Ray Gilbert, "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. It was the second in a long line of Disney songs to win this award, after "When You Wish upon a Star" from Pinocchio.

  • "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a song from the Disney 1946 live action and animated movie Song of the South, sung by James Baskett. With music by Allie Wrubel and lyrics by Ray Gilbert, "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. It was the second in a long line of Disney songs to win this award, after "When You Wish upon a Star" from Pinocchio. For many years the song was part of an opening theme medley for the Wonderful World of Disney television program and it has often been used in other TV and video productions by the studio. It is one of many popular songs that features a bluebird ("Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder"), epitomized by the "Bluebird of Happiness," as a symbol of cheer.

It was also featured in The Muppet Show in the Alan Arkin episode. In the early years of the Disney Channel, an instrumental version of the song was often used as background music for bumpers and promos. The Mickey Mouse Disco version of the song was also used for a DTV music video in the 1980s, using clips from Donald's Off Day, Flowers and Trees, Donald's Vacation, Self Control and Springtime for Pluto. It was is also ranked #47 on the list AFI's 100 Years... 100 Songs, along with "When You Wish Upon a Star" (#7), "Some Day My Prince Will Come" (#19), "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" (#36), "Beauty and the Beast (#62) and "Hakuna Matata" (#99). On the Disney Sing Along Songs video Disneyland Fun, the song is performed over a montage of visitors riding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Star Tours, Star Jets, the Matterhorn Bobsleds, and the monorail.

The sprightly anthem was performed by The Bun-Bun Brothers in The Muppet Show episode 420, a cute act interrupted by Alan Arkin (under the influence of Bunsen's Jekyll-and-Hyde potion). The song was sung as a duet between Rowlf and Jimmy Dean on the December 10, 1964 broadcast of The Jimmy Dean Show, when Rowlf was cured from his delusion that he was a cat.
