Baby Shark – the first viral video!

Love the song Baby Shark? Can’t get the tune out of your head? Did you know that the first viral Baby Shark video was recorded and made into a video Mike Whitla, founder of Howdytoons and Rainbow Songs? With over 55 million views, this popular tune was put up on Youtube March, 19, 2014 – long before the song became a viral hit worldwide. Take a look at this original version of Baby Shark by Howdytoons. This Baby Shark video outlines a specific story and has a particular look to the characters.

Imitations of Baby Shark

After this video was created there were numerous imitations made. The most famous Baby Shark is the Pinkfong version, which has many similarities to the Howdytoons version. That video has generated billions of views. Many fans have given credit to Howdytoons for creating the original Baby Shark video in their comments on the song.

Dress up with Rainbow Songs for Halloween!

As you know, the best part of Halloween is DRESSING UP! Kids and adults alike are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to class during Halloween Week. We’ll make some time at the end of class for you to take photos of these spooky and adorable outfits. We’d love to see your Halloween pics! Be sure to tag @rainbowsongs_ on Instagram and @rainbowsongs1 on Facebook so that we can like and share!

Why do we dress up for Halloween anyway?

Did you know that Halloween originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced Sow-in) to celebrate the end of the harvest before the long, cold winter set in? Celts believed that on the night before the new year (which they celebrated on November 1), the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. They believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth on the evening of October 31, and they would dress up as ghosts, ghouls and wild animals to blend in with the walking spirits. Pretty neat, right?

Over time Samhain evolved into the Halloween that we know today! And since singing is the keystone of any celebration, we’ll be singing awesome Halloween songs for children in class, including “I’m A Crazy Witch”, “Five Little Pumpkins”, and other spooky tunes! Check out our most recent newsletter (handed out in class) for lyrics for these Halloween songs. You can also find lyrics in our online database.
