Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears: Alicia Keys Performs Theme Song

On tonight’s edition of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Alicia Keys performed a soulful rendition of the theme song of Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears.

The animated show ran for 65 episodes and six seasons, from 1985 until 1991. It began on NBC, moved to ABC and the finished in first-run syndication. The Gummi Bears series tells the tale of a group of bears who are the last of their kind, live deep in the woods, and hold the secret to the coveted Gummiberry Juice.

The theme song is typically a catchy, jaunty tune but Keys chose to cover it in a very dramamtic way. Here’s the original and then Keys’ performance from tonight.

What do you think? Which version do you prefer? Did you watch the animated series?

    One of the best animated programs ever, thanks for sharing! Love that the audience cheered as soon as they recognized the song, hah. If I had been there, I’d probably been like, “She’s singing the Gummi Bears theme song? Seriously?” But she and I are about the same age, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that she’s an uber fan of the show as well. Long live the Gummi Bears!
