Opening Theme Lyrics

We got a gorilla for sale!
Magilla Gorilla for sale!
Won't you buy him, take him home and try him?
Gorilla for sale!

See in the window, Magilla Gorilla.
Full of charm and appeal.
Handsome, elegant, intelligent, sweet.
He's really IDEAL!

Don't you want a little gorilla you can call your own?
A gorilla who'd be with you when you're alone?

Magilla: This is The Magilla Gorilla Show!
Starring me and Mr. Peebles,
With Mushmouse and Punkin' Puss,
and Ricochet Rabbet and Droop-a-long.

Gorilla, Magilla Gorilla for sale.
Ogee: How much is that gorilla in the window?

Take our advice, at any price,
A gorilla like Magilla is mighty nice!
Gorilla, Magilla Gorilla for sale!
