TV-Film Songs & Theme Songs

Brian Woodbury has written dozens of songs – or maybe hundreds, we've lost count of how many kids' tv-film songs have earwormed their way into today's youths' formative years. For example, the infamous theme song from Pepper Ann, the Teachers Pet film theme song, a huge number of songs from Bear in the Big Blue House, Book of Pooh, etc.

Pepper Ann is an American animated series created by Sue Rose and aired on ABC. It debuted on September 13, 1997, and ended on November 18, 2000. It aired as part of the Disney’s One Saturday Morning block. Mr. Woodbury wrote and produced the theme song.
