You've probably heard the song Witch Doctor. But did you know these five fun facts about it?

  1. It was a huge hit in 1958, spending time at number 1 on the Billboard top 100
  2. It's by the Alvin and the Chipmunks guy, from before Alvin and the Chipmunks
  3. It's kind of racist
  4. The Rugrats movie had a Devo version of it
  5. The Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoon did an episode about it that has to be seen to be believed

That last fun fact is what prompted me to make this page.

This is a clip from the original Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoon show, The Alvin Show, which originally aired in 1961. The absurd opening sketch is a warmup for what happens during the song itself.
