This song is so unbelievably catchy! Why isn't it number one! As the Nostalgia Critic says: "It will never leave! It will never leave! "

Watch the reboot's remake of this. Now.

"It will never leave! "

The 2017 version is FAR better than the orignal one. There is nothing special about the orignal version because it's just clips, but the new version is a theme song with a background that we've never seen before. Not the best, but the most creative theme song (I'm referring to the 2017 version).
