Theme Song: Atom Ant



tom Ant was one of the featured segments on the hour-long Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show. Other segments included Precious Pupp, The Hillbilly Bears, Secret Squirrel, Squiddly Diddly and Winsome Witch. All segments were around 7 minutes in length.


Possessed with super strength and the ability to fly, Atom Ant was no ordinary insect. When law enforcement agencies faced a problem they couldn't handle themselves, they turned to Atom Ant for help.


Atom Ant's secret headquarters (the place marked with the mailbox that read ATOM ANT) was located in a private ant hill. Deep in his underground laboratory, Atom Ant normally lifted weights or read Atom Ant comics between missions. He picked up distress signals with his antennae, and if need be communicated by telephone or video screen relay with the law enforcement agency in need of his help. With a hearty cry of “Up and at ’em, Atom Ant!” the tiny hero then zoomed off to save the day, overcoming every challenge he faced with relative ease.


After his solo crime-fighting days came to an end, Atom Ant became a regular cast member on Yogi's Gang (1973), and later appeared on Yo Yogi! (1991).
