With the name Hooray For Everything being retired, I thought we'd take one last trip down memory lane to explore the origin of the name. For the record, Hooray For Everything as a ball team was extremely successful. In four seasons, we won the championship three times. Where did the name come from? The name Hooray for Everything comes from "The Simpsons", and is a tribute to our enduring love of the show.
Hooray for Everything first appears in episode 7F07 "Bart vs Thanksgiving". During halftime of the traditional Dallas Cowboys game on Thanksgiving, Hooray for Everything perform "Get Dancin'" by Disco Tex and his Sex-o-lettes. Here's an excerpt:
Announcer: And now, get set for our fabulous halftime show, featuring the well-groomed young go-getters of `Hooray for Everything!'
Homer: Oh, I love those kids. They've got such a great attitude!
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, 'Hooray for Everything' invites you to join them in a salute to the greatest hemisphere on earth, the Western Hemisphere! The dancingest hemisphere of all!
Hooray for Everything next appeared in episode 9F11 "Selma's Choice". While the Simpsons watch TV, an ad for Duff Gardens sounds like this:
Announcer: Come to Duff Gardens, where roaming gangs aren't a problem anymore. Now featuring the clean-shaven sound of "Hooray for Everything"!
Hooray for Everything: Hey, kids. Take a walk on the wild side!
Hooray for Everything: And all the races sing... Shoo-be-doo, shooby-dooby-doo, shoo-be-do, shooby-dooby-doo, yeah!
Hooray For Everything will be missed.
